The Moment Of Zen


Photojoaquin the streets of downtown Oakland. It was Saturday morning and the streets were empty, it felt as if Oakland was all mine to capture. I walked up and down Broadway for almost five hours simply snapping away at anything that caught my eye, even taking the time to sit down and watch life pass me by. This was my “Zen Moment” finding peace and clarity doing what I absolutely love.

One Last Picnic

About a week ago I found out that the Tomales Bay Oyster Company will be removing their picnic tables and barbecue grills because of a Marin County code enforcement. Sadly their current hours of operations from 9am to 5pm everyday will be cut down to only half days on Friday, Saturday and Sunday effective October 16th, 2015. KPIX News on Channel 5 also showed up while we were there and interviewed the owner along with some of their customers. My family and I visit a few times during the year so we decided to come one last time before they shutdown their picnic area. Here are some photos from the day.

SF Rush

SF Rush, “The Challenge Run.” What is it? “The Challenge covers a 4.9k obstacle course where participants must conquer hundreds of stairs, ramps, tire flips, back pedals, sprints, high steps through bungees, combine drills, and bust through padded gauntlets. The races finishes on the field of Levi’s Stadium.”

I have no clue why I agreed to sign up for this! I never work out and for some reason I thought eh, how bad can this be? Well it was pretty damn intense, in the description when they say “hundreds of stairs” I think they should have said thousands of stairs! In the end I’d do it all over again, here are some photos I somehow managed to take.

Sailing on The Bay

I often get disappointed with myself for not taking advantage of all the amazing things one can do here in the San Francisco Bay Area. So when my wife asked me if I’d like to go for a ride on her co-workers sail boat, of course I responded with a “HELL YEA!” From calm waters to rough waters, to dodging  boats on the bay while listening to music ranging from Classic Rock to EDM  (electronic dance music) it was the most fun I had in a long time.











   

 

Warriors Parade

It’s been 40 years since Golden State last won a championship. No wonder on Friday June 19th, 2015 close to a million “Dub Nation” fans came to fill the streets of Oakland California to celebrate. At times I was squished in between so many people it was almost impossible to take any pictures, not to mention it was pretty damn hot as well! Regardless at the end of the day the experience was well worth it and I’d gladly do it all over again.
