A Moment in Time: 11am--Bay Farm Island Bridge

Getting close to finishing the access routes on to the island of Alameda. The Bay Farm Island Bridge leads from the Alameda "main island" to the Bay Farm Island district of Alameda, which is not really an island, rather a peninsula attached to Oakland.

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.
