Swan's Market in Downtown Oakland

Spent a couple days photographing the fine folks and delicious food at Swan's Market in Old Oakland for Diablo Magazine. The market fills an entire city block and has a diverse and vibrant community feel. Originally called the Housewives Market, many people mentioned going there with their parents or grandparents to shop, eat and socialize 30 or 40 years ago. After closing for some time, and recently having been revitalized, Swan's is bustling once again and has a great welcoming and down to earth feel.

Kare Anderson for Dumbo Feather

I photographed speaker and writer Kare Anderson at her home in Sausalito. I had all these lovely ideas about photographing her walking around in her hillside neighborhood, and in her cute backyard- but it ended up pouring rain. I got this shot in the (literally) four minutes we had before the sky opened up. NOT that I'm complaining about rain in California, last December was pretty much the last time we got a good rain here. You can check out the article in Dumbo Feather here and see her TED Talk on being an opportunity maker here
