Community Photo of the Week: Sunday Morning on Lake Park

on May 24, 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 Paul Kist.

Kist snapped this photo on a Sunday morning on Lake Park Avenue in mid-April. “I saw this father and his child walking home from doing some shopping,” Kist wrote in an e-mail. “I saw them, and I saw this really sincere moment of care and connection. The baby is just resting, so peacefully, as quiet as the morning was around them. It was a beautiful moment to have witnessed before I started my day.”

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.
