Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life of Telegraph Avenue

Telegraph Avenue

First look down Telegraph Avenue with UC Berkeley’s Campanile in the background.

I was in Oakland South of Berkeley when I saw this weeks challenge of Street Life. My route home took me down Telegraph Avenue. Telegraph is a one-way street that dead ends into UC Berkeley. It is were homeless and college co-ed cross paths on a daily basis. I gave myself the assignment to take whatever photos I could from my car when it naturally stopped for traffic. These are the four pictures I came out with. It’s spring break so most of the images are of the homeless.

Further down Telebraph

I edited the pictures with as texture and color to give the people the grace they deserve.

Telegraph Ave in front of what use to be Cody’s  Used Book store a Berkeley institution where you could find any book you wanted. It was made useles by Amazon and Barns and Nobles.

One more look

One more look at Telegraph.

I’ll let the emotional impact of these photos stand alone as comments on homelessness. The challenge today was to show the character of a town by its streets. There is a lot more to Berkeley I just happened to be on Telegraph this morning.
