The city of my birth holds a big place in my heart. Within, Forest Park holds a special mystique. After living for 20 years in a cabin in the middle of the wilderness of Canyon, just outside of Oakland, I can well imagine what wonders lie in those deep woods.
The contrast between nature and industry has always beguiled me. I’m particularly enchanted by scenes of nature taking over rusty and antiquated architecture and machinery. More on that later.
