Community Photo of the Week: Puddle on a Leaf

on May 9, 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 Zoe Chafe.

Chafe snapped this photo of a raindrop in a leaf on her block in Rockridge during the mid-April storms. “I loved the natural beauty of the rainwater caught in the leaf — a calm memento left behind by last night’s huge thunderstorm,” Chafe wrote in an e-mail.

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.
