Piedmont Avenue, Oakland, California

I shot Piedmont Avenue in Oakland for the “Street Detail” section of the current issue of San Francisco Magazine.

Here’s a set of all of the shots for the magazine as well a few others I’ve taken of Piedmont Avenue over the past few years.

Two of my favorite places on Piedmont Avenue are probably Fenton’s Creamery (which has some of the best ice cream you’ll ever taste — be sure to try the toasted almond) and Cesar, a new restaurant that is pretty packed all the time.

Of course my very favorite place near Piedmont Ave. is not exactly on Piedmont Ave., but at the end of it, Mountain View Cemetery. Mountain View Cemetery is my favorite cemetery in the Bay Area for taking photos. Here’s my set of images from Mountain View Cemetery.

    Thomas, any chance of getting these photos back online? Am thinking of going to this cemetary.
