Urban landscape

Oakland, CA - June 2008. Located at Foothill and Seminary Avenues, this intersection is in one of the most dangerous areas of East Oakland. UPDATE: This liquor store can be seen in the Discovery Channel documentary "Gang Wars: Oakland". And I got out of the car and took pictures here.

 

Now I have to go back on a sunny day and get some nice color shots!

    Heh heh, I drove by here recently too (after the sale...), felt awfully visible in my little artcar. Took no pics on Foothill, went back to Macarthur.

    When I get out there, this is one of the first places I want to go.

    Hey, I'd love to explore Foothill, with others and in the daytime.

    "When"...?

    Lol, I grew up a few blocks from here, we used to ride our bikes around there all the time in the 90's. It's a shame what has happened in East Oakland lately, and people wonder why I never go back home to visit...

    Dope Picture though.
