A few months ago, I started reading Missionmission.wordpress.com, and then some of the blogs they link to: Whati’mseeing.com, Missionloc@l, Tenderblog, and a bunch of others.
Back then I was living in a house in East Palo Alto that was split into three apartments. The landlord went into foreclosure, everybody else moved out, I stuck it out, asserting my rights under East Palo Alto’s tenant-friendly rent control ordinances. It was spooky. Somebody broke into my apartment and stole my camera and leafblower.
My dear sister was kind enough to buy me another camera. I eventually settled with the bank and moved to another EPA apartment, which I can’t really afford- hey, business is slow for everyone I talk to. With time on my hands, I started this blog. Pretty quickly photographed most of the interesting stuff in EPA, I think- it’s a small town. So I photograph a lot of stuff when I visit my girlfriend in SF on weekends. She helps me spot stuff and has taken some of the photos.
So thanks for looking at my blog.
