Community Photo of the Week: Tribune Reflection

on December 14, 2011

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

Parks took this photo of the Tribune tower reflection on a downtown building’s windows. “Recently it had been announced the Oakland Tribune would be conglomerated, and lose even the civic appelation that still marquees the building you see pictured here, years after the paper vacated Oakland’s only true landmark piece of architecture,” Parks wrote in an e-mail. “The beauty is eerie. Also eerie: it’s the only public clock I know that keeps proper time, like a monolisk for something—local news?”

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.

    It should be noted that BANG, after massive public input, decided to retain the Oakland Tribune masthead. Recently they have opened media labs in several Oakland communities. In early 2012 they plan to move their main offices back to downtown Oakland.
