The botanicals along the way provide
relief while navigating the Downtown Oakland corridor, and pop up along the path between my office and Accounts Payable three blocks away. I make the AP pilgrimage three times a week to collect construction invoices for the audit. The hike is both a blessing and a curse: at times I'm grateful for the chance to get out and breathe. At other times, it's a grind sliding back and forth between two monoliths framing a job that is not, as they say, "a good fit." Photographing the jog's a change, though. For the better. Thank you, photo fans.
