Photos: On the train from Boston to California

Back in June 2014 when I was thinking about moving to the Bay Area, I took a roundtrip Amtrak train trip from Boston to Emeryville, CA. It was a fun adventure that took 4.5 days out to California and then five days for the trip back. A little less than two months later I moved to Oakland.

Fast forward three years and three months, I’m now planning my move back to Boston. Today I finally uploaded many of the iPhone photos I took during the first part of the 2014 train expedition. The hand-drawn maps are courtesy of Michael.

Photos of the Roman Chariot Mural in Temescal Oakland

I stopped by the large mural of awesome street art at 43rd and Telegraph in Oakland to take some photos. Thanks to the Internet, I found out that the mural is called “Roman Chariot” and it was created by Temescal artists in 2011. The Temescal News & Views newsletter had this to say about the project:

The mural is enormous, extending 156 lineal feet down 43rd St. and 75 lineal feet down Telegraph, and covering more than 4,000 square feet of surface.

Marcela and Ronn Simpson, owners of the building since 1978, were inspired to have a mural gracing the building’s walls by their son Michael Linton Simpson and his close friend Derek Weisberg. Both graduates of CCA, the California College of the Arts, Michael and Derek started the now-closed Boontling Gallery and were instrumental in founding the monthly Art Murmur events with other Oakland galleries and artists.

Derek curated the mural, and local artists F. Purth, Kara Joslyn, Jeremy Ehling, Jake Watling, Billy Sprague, Rich Jacobs, Nick Mann, Daniel Jesse Lewis and Michael Linton Simpson participated. Work began on July 9th, and each artist was free to do his or her own work. Financial support for the mural came from the Temescal Telegraph BID, Kelly-Moore Paints and Mark’s Paint Spot. The name of the mural is “Roman Chariot.”

Another Month of Firsts: Roses in March

Each month I’ve lived in the Bay Area since relocating from Boston last Summer brings a fresh batch of new. This month it’s roses in March and it’s certainly something I did not see in Boston or Nebraska.
