A Typical Friday Night in Oakland

Oakland, or ‘Oaktown’ we we call it, is not only the setting and my inspiration for the Oaktown Girls series, it’s my home. And many Friday nights, my wife and I head down to the Oakland Museum of California for what can only be called an all-community street party. It’s a perfect representation of what I love about this town. Here’s a good snapshot the museum put out.

And here’s a fun close up take on some dancers I shot, competing on a recent Friday night. Can’t you just see Lizzy and the girls getting down here?
