So this is the first of the people and places photos. Brian, who lives in Oakland, California, was kind enough to let me come over one afternoon and take some photos. He is a talented artist and a mad bike rider, in addition to being an all around awesome guy. He has amazing skills with cross-stitching, latch hook rug making and quilting. After these photos were taken we walked over to Lake Merritt, got burritos and people watched.
All the photos can be seen here:
