It was a busy, interesting year. I had a hard time limiting myself for photos to show 2011 in review. I'm not sure of the exact count, but I posted between 2,800 and 3,000 photos of Oakland in 2011, across 80 albums. I attended a wide variety of Oakland events; went on walking tours of downtown, different neighborhoods, stairs in the hills, and cemeteries; ate at a bunch of restaurants and food trucks and drank at a bunch of bars, breweries and wineries; rode a lot of miles on my bike; and of course, saw a lot of cool signs.
Oakland is a pretty darn awesome place to live. Here's hoping 2012 is happy, peaceful, and prosperous for Oaklanders, and it becomes even more awesome.
