Black and White Challenge - Day 2

My second image for the Black and White Photo Challenge is one that was in my "maybe one day" pile of files. I shot this scene last year when I had the pleasure of visiting Alcatraz for the day.

What an amazing place that is! I easily have 100 shots from that day - I was so excited to be there, and as I LOVE spooky, old, rusty and grungy places I justĀ I coudn't stop shooting.

I was so taken with this green door surrounded by all that peeling white paint and old brickwork, and of course I couldn't help but let my mind wander to the horrors that could be hiding behind that door if I let my imagination run.

One day I'll process it in all it's lovely grungy colour, but for now I'm pretty happy with it in Black and White.
