Under Construction
Downtown Oakland

June 25th, 2004

This Is Very Good
Not so many people on the downtown streets, a quick seafood salad with a bag of salt and vinegar potato chips bought at a deli on Broadway then eaten over in the City Center sitting at a table in the sun. The photograph is of a building that sits where Telegraph angles off Broadway, a wonderful sliver of pie shaped building I see from about this angle as I wait in the late afternoon for my bus. Whoever said you can't go home again had never heard of the number twelve. I wonder how funky the offices are inside, how utilitarian the space, the size of the windows and angle of the light for, say, photography. An idle thought.

A continuation of a clear headed week. This is good. This is very good.

The banner photograph was taken today in Oakland at noon with a Nikon D2h mounted with a 28 - 70mm f 2.8 Nikkor lens at ISO 200.
