Alcatraz revisited. Through the door. I have an obsession with Alcatraz. I have been there three times. I love the old buildings and the patina and crumbling infrastructure. The saddest thing to me is that when the prisoners were in their tiny sparse cells at night they could hear the sounds of people's voices who were enjoying the nightlife  drifting across the bay from San Francisco. It must have been torture to hear life going on around you when there was no hope that you could ever join.
