Thanks, Oakland

On a gorgeous day two years ago (it was 11/29) I made a field trip to Corona Heights, across the bay in that other city, and shot this view of my home town. Soon I turned it into the banner image for this blog. I thought I’d offer a larger version—just click the photo for the 1600×835 size. It doesn’t get the whole city, only from Hiller Highlands down to Crestmont, but it gets the essence: green hills, wide lowlands, a handsome downtown, a busy harbor.

San Francisco is a fine place (it certainly has us beat for slickensides), but Oakland is where I’ve been happy to live for almost 20 years. I feel like I’m just getting to know it.
