Priscilla


More exploring, just north of San Francisco. Trying to show what it felt like being there. I've spent a lot of time gaining experience to do this, and trying the best I can. I hope to always learn, and improve my abilities to deliver the feeling of being "there" to whatever viewer.

Oakland hearing for the SF Chronicle


A bunch of folks met Friday to talk about the gap between people growing up and living in Oakland to other places in the US. It was said in the assembly meeting that a black boy in Oakland, on average, will die 15 years earlier than a white boy born in the hills. Crazy. I think the biggest asset is that the meeting took place and people created a space to talk about these issues. Things aren't right, so talking about them is the first step to changing them.

Hercules



I met this wonderful family at a Hindu temple in Vallejo. They invited me to their house Wednesday.
It feels good to get out there, explore and photograph.
