Community photo of the week: Clouds and blue sky at the Macarthur BART

on January 12, 2011

Oakland North is continuing with our new feature. Every Wednesday, we will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Michael Thorn.

Thorn stands on this Macarthur BART platform twice a day. “Everyday—back and forth and back again,” he says. In the mornings, as he waits, he says that the lyrics of the song, “Everyday,” from the 1980’s punk band Articles of Faith run through his head: “Every day’s like another, in everyway, will I recover, what’s my name, what’s my number, I don’t feel so bad always.”  He prefers the evenings when he returns home, he says.

If you’d like to contribute to “community photo of the week,” just send a favorite photograph taken in Oakland to with the subject: PHOTO. Please make all photographs 1600 pixels wide, 72 pixels/inch, and in jpeg format.
