When I got my first flash, I thought I knew what I was doing...used to thinking flashes being way to intense, I tried to "compensate" by shooting it at 125, instead of at 60 or under...obviously, yeah I know, "Duh!", I mean really don't judge me bro- the shutter cannot keep up with the burst of light. But, anyway, here is a picture from downtown...during the Oscar Grant sentencing rally.
If you ever went to punk shows in north berkeley, no doubt you have shared a conversation or two over a brownie, donut, or banana here. In high school I used to make the walk here between bands religiously. When I turned 21, I sadly started to make more and more walks across the street to the brewery, or even the liquor store on San Pablo. I think I was better off spending my time here.
