5th Avenue, Oakland

I explored a wonderful and fascinating little community in Oakland, wedged between I-880 and the Bay. Artists; welding shops; homes; abandoned cars; community.

By the Side of the Railroad

I have driven past this particular spot many times, always thinking I would like to make photos there. It is off of Highway 101 south of Gilroy. It's an abandoned and decaying railroad siding for a purpose lost to time.

Alameda Antique Faire

The Alameda Antique Faire is one of my favorite places to make photographs. Acres and acres of vendors selling all kinds of wonderful bits and pieces of the past. Here are some images from my latest visit.

Urban Ore

I spent a wonderful morning at Urban Ore in Berkeley. Check full of interesting stuff, and there are some very kind people running the place. 

Pier 70

Pier 70 is a beautiful old industrial complex in San Francisco. Instead of being torn down, it has been minimally rehabbed and used as an event space. This means that all the beauty of it's long life and slow decay is visible and accessible.


After the election I felt the urge to get out and make ART. I drove and walked around the Bayview area of San Francisco. Here's some of what I found.
