Community Photo of the Week: Sausal Creek Colors

on March 21, 2012

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 Meredith Fenton.

Fenton took this shot of some graffiti on a bridge over Sausal Creek in the Dimond District. “My dog Fosse and I were jogging along one of the trails that runs along Sausal Creek,” Fenton wrote in an e-mail. “What had been an entirely nature-filled view suddenly changed when we ran under this bridge. I had to stop for a minute to take in the art and thought about the juxtaposition of natural art with person-made art as I snapped this 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.
