Bay Area Photo Album

I met up with my cousin and her wife for dinner while I was in the Bay Area last week. Before dinner my cousin took me on a tour of the Mission District murals, since the last time I was there my husband wasn't feeling well and we had to abandon our plans. This time, we ran across a street artist painting a new mural. He kindly allowed me to take his picture as he worked. Watching his almost meditative act of creation was a real highlight for me. The rest of the photos I snapped in and around Old Oakland or the Mission. The picture of me with the painted eagle feathers was taken by my cousin. How brave I am, posting a full length photo of myself, defying "the usual vanities."
