Community Photo of the Week: Love for the town

on September 7, 2011

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

Kim took this photo of a sign on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and 40th Street that used to warn drivers of construction ahead, and to expect delays. “I LOVE that someone hacked into it and changed the message,” Kim wrote in an e-mail. “It made me burst out laughing, so I stopped and took the photo.”

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 large-sized and in jpeg format.
