San Francisco’s Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers is an annual footrace operated by Wasserman Events and has run continuously for over 100 years as a staple to the City by the Bay. With a starting point near the San Francisco Bay, a few blocks from The Embarcadero, the 12K race runs west through the city and finishes at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto the Pacific Coast’s Ocean Beach. A quintessential San Francisco experience since 1912, the race is interwoven into the fabric of the city and is a true reflection and celebration of life between the breakers and the Bay.

Victory Workspace, formerly known as Laptop Lounge, is relocating from their N. California Blvd space to Locust St, right next to Century Theater in downtown Walnut Creek. According to a sign in the window they expect to open in June. A couple of months ago they opened a second location in Danville in the historic Shuey Podva house on Hartz. Ave.
Back in the olden days, i.e. before cell phones included a camera, everyone used dedicated cameras. There were Polaroid instant cameras, point and shoot cameras with 35mm film, and of course bigger cameras with interchangeable lens. Now most cameras are digital but since it’s possible to take photographs with your camera, there is less reason to lug around a separate camera. Do you use a dedicated camera? Does the quality make it worthwhile to lug around? At times I think about getting a camera especially as summer rolls around and trips are getting planned, but I always end up using my iPhone and am generally happy with the results, although miss the bokeh.
