Stateside with Rosalea - Photo Supplement

Scoop’s San Francisco correspondent Rosalea Barker sent these pictures from her town. The images supplement yesterday’s column: Stateside With Rosalea: Time For A Sesqui.

Waiting for its new friends to come, one of four giant cranes already at the Port of Oakland, having cleared the Bay Bridge by a couple of feet back in 2000. Four more of these huge cranes, built in China, will arrive in May.

Two postmodern R2D2s, eager to board the Muni light rail on San Francisco's embarcadero, are dwarfed by the double-decker Bay Bridge slung above them. When travelling on the lower deck in the fog, you feel like you're in a Star Wars movie set.

On Oakland's Broadway, near the 1912 Flatiron Building at 14th Street, is DeLauer's news stand. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it sells newspapers and magazines from all around the world.

Reflected in the modern buildings of Oakland's downtown area is the distorted image of the Tribune Tower on 13th Street, home of Oakland's own Home Town Paper.
