Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Christopher Voss.
Voss snapped this photo at an auto shop near his house off East 12th Street. ”I took it purely because I liked the colors,” Voss wrote in an e-mail. “I think this is true of all parts of Oakland — people love the “grit” because it can be very beautiful. No exception here.”
If you’d like to contribute to “community photo of the week,” just send a favorite photograph taken in Oakland to email@example.com with the subject: PHOTO. Please make all photographs large-sized and in jpeg format. Oakland North cannot pay for community photos, except in gratitude and local love.
