Community Photo of the Week: Lake Merritt gondola

on July 25, 2012

Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s photo is by Kelly Patrick Dugan:

Dugan writes: “This was shot in May, 2012, at Lake Chalet restaurant, on the deck area. … It was a nice evening, with a dark blue tint.  The empty gondola was nicely lit and the backdrop really highlighted the beauty of Lake Merritt and I think those who have never been here might be surprised to know of such a gem in the middle of the city.”

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.
