This for week's Scenes of the City we hung out inside and outside of AT&T Park for a couple odd events. One was the aforementioned Cal Bears football team playing in the park (they will be playing most of their home games there because of renovations to their home field). The other is the first-ever water polo match in McCovey Cove. As part of effort to garner support for their sport, the UC Berkeley Alumni Water Polo team vs. The Olympic Club Water Polo team played a match in the somewhat frigid waters of the bay.
Conjure up memories of lonely Alice finding her way through an unfamiliar magical world in Alice in Wonderland, or relive James Henry Trotter's surreal, peachy adventure with strange insects in Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach. Now, hold tightly onto that vision, and take a gander at the images here by LA-based artistic duo Jeff Charbonneau and Eliza French. The similarities are striking, so much so that Photograph magazine referred to their work as "Fellini's take on Lewis Carroll."
Scenes of the City: Rock Climbing and Bouldering At Ocean Beach, Glen Canyon Park and Corona Heights
For this week's Scenes of the City we shot local climbers in action Ocean Beach, Glen Canyon Park, Corona Heights just off of Beaver Street and on the retaining wall below the look out at Twin Peaks.
Andy Potts celebrates as he comes to the finish line.
We rose early on Sunday and made our way down to Marina to capture the harrowing Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. Swim, bike, run and do it as quick as possible. This year's winner, Andy Potts finished the 1.5 mile swim, 18-mile bike and 8-mile run in just under two hours. Badass.
The athletes transition out of the water.
