Community photo of the week: Fall backwards

on September 10, 2014

Every week, Oakland North will publish a photo submitted by one of our readers. This week’s image of a redbud tree shot by Aden Neumeister last autumn.

“I was just walking to work and really love the heart shaped leaves of the redbuds that you see a lot in Oakland.  It was the first day of fall,” she writes. “It seemed perfect.”

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, horizontal and in jpeg format. We’d love to hear a little bit about where and when you shot it, and why the image caught your eye.

Oakland North cannot pay for community photos, except in gratitude and local love. Our thanks to everyone who has contributed to this series! You can see past photos by clicking here.
