ERIN IN THE BAY

A place to share my photography, writing, and thoughts as a Bay Area transplant. Stop in whenever you'd like.

Oh the smashed things on my street, I can’t tell you how many. Discard.

Yes, this is on my street. There are creatives all over the place here.

Went on a hike yesterday at Redwood Regional Park and saw this glittering pitch. It’d been so long since I clicked my camera shutter. I missed it. I miss seeing that way, though I don’t think it ever went away. 
I’ve been working too much.

It’s just begun raining again (during the night) for the first time in 6 or more months. In Oakland, it occurred to me, homes don’t provide shelter from the elements. What keeps us inside is the danger perceived to be lurking on the streets. I’ve never known a place where I’ve felt so discouraged from being present outdoors after dark—in a place where the weather is temperate all the time. How can this be so disconnected?

Some more Seattle photos to share, now that I’m back (as in I’m Back) in the Bay. It was a very nice visit, and I even got to ride around on a sweet bike all day yesterday, but it left me utterly exhausted. Felt great to come home and nap, eat lunch, do laundry, etc. Home sweet Oakland.
Anyway, I really liked this mural.

This is my favorite plant in California. I wish I had a backyard to house one or two. Maybe I could get a potted one. Sigh…
