Jackson had been sleeping in the encampment until police in riot gear evicted her and other Occupy Oakland protesters early Tuesday Morning. Oakland police say they arrested 75 people while clearing the protest that had grown into an encampment with dozens of tents.

6 signs of the changing times in South of Market for the San Francisco Chronicle

Last week I photographed my first assignment for the San Francisco Chronicle. It felt good getting out there and making photographs for a publication. John King wrote the column, and it's really good. It was printed yesterday, I was really stoked. Click on the screen-shot below to read the full article, and look at the other photographs.

It's been a little more than a week since Liliana Ramos drove herself out of the United States. Leaving her children behind, she was deported on September 24. She's now in Tijuana. Waiting to return to Bend. Return to her kids. Return to the life she had lived for 21 years.

In the photography Liliana, on the right, has just been told she has to leave the country. She stands, telling her Church friends what was said during the meeting with her immigration officer.

I want to continue working on the story. Get myself to Tijuana to be with Liliana. Get myself back to Bend to see how her kids are moving along in the new direction, without their mom.

If you want to read more, THIS story from the New York Times is worth a read.
