A Rusting Golden Gate Bridge

2 Comments

Tolls for cars or motorcycles on the Golden Gate Bridge are now $7 for non fast trak holders and $6 for fast trak holders. The Golden Gate Bridge brought in over 100 million dollar in revenue in 2013. Annual monetary figures for 2014 or 2015 have yet to be reported online. It is also believed that at least 100,000 cars use that bridge daily, BUT, yet the Golden Gate Bridge is rusting. That’s right a recent visit to that bridge I noticed plenty of areas that are heavily rusted and seem worn out. Check out the pics below. This link indicates how often the bridge is supposed to be painted. http://goldengatebridge.org/research/factsGGBIntOrngPaint.php

People gathered outside the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco to protest the brutal slaughter of dolphins. Approx. 30 people held signs and handed out literature, at the Japanese Consulate, to people in the financial district in hopes of making people more aware of the Japanese tradition of slaughtering dolphins.

Fencing in Golden Gate Park is restricting access

2 Comments

The fencing that has been installed in Golden Gate Park is restricting my access to that public park.
The Outside Lands concert isn’t until the August 8th, but that fencing is up two weeks before and two weeks after that concert.
I love live music and think it should be declared the 7th wonder of the world but why does it take so much fencing?
If you ask me that fencing is an indicator that local politicians care more about money than allowing their constituency access to the parks without restrictions.

After an GMO/MONSANTO protest in San Francisco a group called Occupy the Farm tore up grass and began their own garden in Justin Herman Plaza. The group collectively removed the sod, grated/tilled the dirt and planted dozens of new Kale plants. SF Police and the Park Rangers looked on and monitored their action. The next day the garden is still there.

My humanitarian-like coverage of the Same Sex Marriage Debacle in San Francisco

2 Comments

Back in 2008, I took notice when then San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom made public his intention of allowing gay couples to be legally married in the City. But so did all the people, institutions, churches, and other various miscellaneous entities who chose to oppose.
First I would like to make it clear, I don’t care about marriage, I didn’t like being married when I was, and I am in no way ever getting married again. But living in San Francisco you have a tendency to live next door and are friends with people, who have been affected either negatively or positively by same-sex marriage.

In the same year then Mayor Gavin Newsom allowed same-sex marriage, a ban on same-sex marriage  was elected by the people and placed on the California Constitution.  I immediately noticed the inequality and started doing my thing, which was to show the actions that took place in San Francisco over the ban on same-sex marriage, and create videos and take pictures of those effected by that ban.
I must now make this clear: I don’t think that gay or lesbian people should be denied their rights. My picture stories, videos, article and news posts have gotten thousands of hits. I will post the links of the coverage I created and produced for gay or lesbian folks who want to be able to marry legally in the United States and namely California.
