Gardens at Alcatraz

I enjoyed learning about the gardening program prisoners back in the day at Alcatraz. And I’m glad that the current caretakers are continuing the tradition of beautification and protection of the tiny island

My challenge with these pictures was to combine the macro shots with a sense of location. Sometimes I shoot macro stuff just to show the detail of something. But this time I thought it was important to give a sense of the total environment.

And here’s one shot to show the scene as I was interpreting it.
