urban cubism

A scene along the Port of Oakland in West Oakland.


  1. I was born in Vallejo, went to grad school in Berkeley, worked in San Francisco, lived in Walnut Creek, and often dreamed of living in Oakland. I'm so glad to see someone is doing a photo blog about this other city by the bay. It's one of the loveliest and best-situated cities in the Bay Area with some of the worst crime and press. I hope this blog allows you to shed positive light on a city worth getting to know and that people learn Oakland is more than just bad news.

  2. Thanks for the feedback, Janet. You're right that Oakland gets a bad rap. Over time I hope to provide an honest look at this town which has so much to offer. BTW, In Three Rivers, the commentor above you is a former Oaklander. Small world, right?
