Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Charles Pine.
He writes, “I came across this scene on an overcast Saturday, perfect weather for tightrope walkers at the northeast end of Lake Merritt. The Olympics were on, and it was the weekend of the Art & Soul festival downtown, thankfully out of earshot. No matter what spectacles were available, the funambulists had their own understanding of the truth that you are what you do.”
If you’d like to contribute to “community photo of the week,” just send a favorite photograph taken in Oakland to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
