A Moment in Time: 7am--Park Street Bridge

I was very excited to find something for 7am, just past sunrise to highlight the entry of daylight hours to our challenge. But as I woke up on Wednesday I discovered it was quit a foggy overcast day. 

I decided to photograph the Park Street Bridge. I think I mentioned this in an earlier post, but Alameda is an island, right next to Oakland and in the middle of the Bay. I think there are only four or five ways to get there, a tunnel, some bridges and a ferry. (Maybe the rest will be future subjects.) Other than the Webster/Posey tunnel/tube, the Park Street Bridge is one of the most well known, and like many other bridges in the Bay Area, has it's own style and distinctive color, green. 

Here's the perspective of a pedestrian looking east into Oakland.

This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they…

A Moment in Time Repeat: Midnight

Molly, Sarah and I are back at it with a yearly photo challenge, and repeating a favorite from a few years ago. We'll be taking a photo at every hour of the day (two/month) starting at Midnight. Also joining us this time is Katie and my Mom. Looking forward to seeing all the different views around the state and world as Sarah travels.

Here's my midnight photo, at the Alameda Navy Base, one of my favorite old buildings sitting on the bay, and all lit up at night.




A Moment in Time Repeat: 1 AM

For 1 am, I ventured outside again, but just to the corner. At the corner is an auto shop and they have this one older section of the lot that just seems to serve as a roof for old cars, but it looks pretty cool at night.
