I'm a follower and I do love the photographs you've taken. However that last comment regarding the other anon to "grow a pair" is not cool. Basically you're saying that the only way for a person to be brave is to grow a pair of testicles. Which however, is the most sensitive part of a mans body. Not the derived force of a Humans courage. I say human because you have no specific knowledge of knowing which gender the anon is, offending the opposite gender/striping away their masculinity.
Do you usually take photographs by yourself? I always wanted to go in the Oakland area but feel unsafe.
