East Bay Photos

I have been getting a set of photos ready to post from Wade Krause’s recent trip up here.  I don’t know if I have mentioned this or not, but the PBDG DVD will include documentary material about Wade and his work on the clear pinball games, Hellacopters, etc.

I should have that post ready tomorrow. First — I want to share a photo I took last night on the way home from a screening:

These giant sculptures from Burning Man by Karen Cusolito are outside American Steel Studios an amazing art place in Oakland where they are created. Cinematographer Charlie Kuttner (who is also working on the Wade project), told me about them and taught me how to take these long exposure night photos.  So cool!

You can’t imagine how huge these pieces are until you see them.
We also stopped on Treasure Island to take some skyline photos. We had the good fortune of a barge passing through some of the shots.

So when you all come out to the East Bay to visit the Pacific Pinball Museum, there is a ton more to do and see as well!

Pinball photos tomorrow.
Happy Fathers Day!
