Views from West Berkeley, California
2 and 3 February 2010
Photographs by Neil Mishalov
Camera: Canon S90
An old, unused liquid storage container on land previously used for manufacturing. I believe the main reason they did not demolish the tank and its support structure is because the support structure now serves as a cell phone repeater site. I can count 8 cell phone antennas on this photo, and the photograph shows only 50% of the structure! The site is now occupied by Orchard Supply Hardware. 9th Street and Ashby Avenue. 2 February.
Flowering succulent. 10th Street and Virginia Street. 2 February.
Succulent. 10th Street and Virginia Street. 2 February
A false front house built in the late 19th Century. 5th Street and Jones Street. 3 February.
This building was constructed in 1891. It was designed as a single family house, and was subsequently converted to three separate apartments. The current owner is now petitioning the City of Berkeley to approve her plans to change the building back to a single family home. 5th Street and Camelia Street. 3 February.
Romanesco broccoli. This picture was taken at Monterey Market. 3 February.
