A Note of the Background Photo

I took this photo about a year ago off a little building on MacDonald Ave. in my hometown of Richmond, Ca. It was part of a photo essay I’d done for another site, Creosote Journal. Richmond has been in the news for the past few years, what with the Chevron Oil Refinery explosion, a high profile rape case, and the recent decision to use eminent domain to float underwater mortgages. But there’s a lot more going in Richmond than that. The murals here are quite beautiful.

This photo is a particular favorite because there’s something mystical about it. The graffiti on top of the murals add a nice, egalitarian touch, too!

Check out the photo essay at Creosote Journal, and learn a little about these near hidden gems in Richmond.
