    Although the cells were small many prisoners preferred Alcatraz as it was one of the only prisons that had single inmate cells.

    When in the jail you get a very eerie feeling as if there is still a presence inside the cells.

    Oh yeah... and the rumours about the shark infested waters surrounding the jail... they're true... however the sharks are only about 6 inches big and eat small sea creatures, never humans.

    Great series! My favorite is solitary row, the lighting in that one is great. I was there years ago and this makes me want to go back again!

    I'm leaning towards solitary row as well ... I think I'd like to see the whole series in black & white though ... might just be me??

    My favorite is the mile also. It has great focus and detail but most important is the DOF of the shot give it that LOOOONG feel. Nice work.

    Thanks so much for your replies, I will add the B & W conversions to the thread tonight. I was actually leaning towards all B & W but I really liked the colour version for the sun and the old stains on the doors and walls. I found that in B & W you lost that old dirty cell feel.
    Thanks for taking the time to look!

    Cool shots Reaper. Love the black and whites best. I like the "mile" too. The angle is perfect. Well done.

    i agree, nice shots though.

    What is a stewed tart? That doesn't sound too appetising... :puke-rig:
