Somewhere In Time Photo|HDR of Apartments In Oakland, California.
Somewhere In Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I was visiting my cousin in Oakland while getting ready to shoot a wedding in the Bay area. I peeked out her kitchen window and found this amazing view of the Hill Castle Apartment complex. I loved the sign and the urban look of the entire scene so I took a few pictures and decided to run the HDR treatment on them. The noisy pattern on the photo (you can see it best in the sky) comes from her kitchen screen which I could not get out of the window for the picture. In the end, it actually turned out pretty cool and the noise from the screen added to the final product. Oakland is an interesting place. Known by most as crime ridden and grungy, it has a thriving indie scene and a large amount of community based activism. It also has a LOT of really cool, 20’s style art deco signs. I think my cousin said it had the 3rd largest amount of art deco in the entire U.S. Pretty cool and definitely unexpected.
