Highlights and Shadows: The Oakland Cathedral

on February 18, 2009

I was originally gonna title this post ‘Burning Jesus’ cuz I had to darken the center of the image, but then the sensitivity warning light came on in the back of my head. Plus, only the photo nerds would’ve gotten it and everyone else would’ve been confused or pissed off.

You can hang out with the humongous image of the J-man at the Oakland Cathedral next to Lake Merritt.
