San Francisco Mobilizes Against White Supremacy

Leave a comment

Pics and video of San Francisco mobilizing against the planned alt-right’s Patriot Prayer meeting which was going to be held at Crissy Field in San Francisco. Joey Gibson who seems to be the facilitator of the so-called Patriot Prayer phenomenon states via video on the Facebook page his meetings are not about white supremacy etc. He says they are about free speech and expressing themselves. He openly states on a video that he is not white.

However the Patriot Prayer movement has attracted white nationalists, or white supremacists and/or nazi types, which has resulted in a lot of violence at his gatherings. The Patriot Prayer has been in many cities throughout the US. Joey Gibson decided to hold one in San Francisco on Saturday August 26th at Crissy Field. They got a permit and was gonna hold it in that park. However due to local politicians scare tactics he said at the last minute they will not hold their event at Crissy Field, but instead will move it to Alamo Square in San Francisco.

Well Alamo Square is a tight knit neighborhood where many gay, lesbian, transgender, and left leaning liberals live. So San Franciscans mobilized and took to the streets. However Joey Gibson ultimately held a press conference in Pacifica, but later they showed up at Crissy Field. They were encountered by angry San Franciscans at Crissy Field.

Photojournalism

Leave a comment

One aspect I love about my photos is when I actually look at them. I love photojournalism, which is why I do what I do. It is my favorite type of photography, but sometimes MY photos do indeed trigger emotions.
Mostly my comments are WOW! But sometimes it takes me deeper.
I see the faces within the surrounding environment, and I am just amazed at the various reactions from the folks I’m photographing.
What do you see in this photo?
I see confidence, fear, contemplation, and dependency.

Beware of dangerous surf conditions in Pacifica, CA

Leave a comment

On February 9th 2016 two people were on the pier in Pacifica, and they both somehow tripped, then fell into the ocean. An article from local channel 2 KTVU. http://www.ktvu.com/news/88251129-story

It is now common knowledge the cliff’s in Pacifica are eroding. They are also creating a very dangerous situation for people venturing onto the beach.

On November 8, 2015 at approximately 8am a fire was reported at a local business called the Rolling Stock Tire shop at 16th and Shotwell streets in San Francisco. The fire quickly grew to 3 alarms. This is how I discovered the fire. From a Facebook post “The Rolling Stock Fire(yep it’s official name) was very much a discovery fire. Let me explain. I woke up at 7:30am, minutes later I heard fire trucks. I went on Twitter, saw a blip, turned on the scanner, then made a decision. I then got dressed and geared-up, and started walking towards the smoke plume. The blip on Twitter only mentioned 16th street.
I followed the plume. I did not know the exact location.”

Photos of a stranded sailboat stoked up interest on social media.

Leave a comment

On Monday September 29, 2015 while I was out at Golden Gate Park taking a break from all the drama, I heard helicopters. The helicopters were very low, so I went to investigate. So I got in my car and followed the helicopters,(yes that is possible) and they led me to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. Where I then noticed a sailboat had been beached or grounded in the surf. I then scanned Twitter, and the information I collected on that social media site said “Two people were rescued.”
I then walked down to the boat and began taking photos. Another person walked up to me, and said they had a backstory. They had noticed the boat acting weird off the beach earlier in the day, so I then dismissed the scene as thieves whole stole a boat and went on a joyride.

My initial reaction on FB here,
“2 people had to be rescued after their sailboat drifted onto the beach, at Ocean Beach in San Francisco.”
“If you ask me that boat doesn’t look sea worthy.”
“Authorities are suspicious.”
“A sail boat named the Sea Beach ran aground at Ocean Beach in San Francisco on September 28 at approximately 2:30p.m. “Two people were allegedly rescued from the vessel.”
“SFGATE, published one of my photos of the stranded vessel.”

and finally this post.

“Apparently the grounded sailboat stoked up a lot of interest on social media. I underestimated the importance or interesting-ness of that “beached sailboat?” Next time I will handle those scenes differently. I myself dismissed it as nothing more than thieves out for a joy ride on a stolen vessel. That’s why I wrote down “allegedly” on my posts. Thieves who wreck boats don’t get rescued, they get arrested.
I took one look at that boat, and my initial reaction was “stolen.”
