Community Photo of the Week: Car Graffiti

on May 30, 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 Christopher Voss.

Voss took this photo of a car parked in front of new apartments in West Oakland. “The message on the car is just too good, and an act of street art “vandalism,” assuming,” Voss wrote in an e-mail. “I guess if you wanted to look a little too much into it you might see it as there goes the neighborhood type of thing (in terms of the new developments behind it which were having an open house that 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. Oakland North cannot pay for community photos, except in gratitude and local love.
