A short list of sights seen daily from BART between the transbay tube and West Oakland BART-Stacks of colorful shipping containers
-Trucks, speeding out of the port area
-A row of palm trees on their sad, desert island median
-Tanks of fuel, with protective moats
-A haze that obscures the east bay hills
-An engine, pushing empty container trays
-Tiny Victorian houses
-Wow Farm, a small community garden
-The back yard that had the enormous cut-out painting of a hand on the fence, which is now laying, forlorn, on the ground
-Bright red poppies on long stems
-Imperial walkers, along the near, artificial shore.
A visual photo essay on this same topic can be found at my phone photo blog, beginning with Industrial West Oakland 1 (mobilelene.blogspot.com).
