1 . Heres the thing in my time spent in Oakland and San Francesco bay area. The streets as they say dirty filthy but the city i call home. The truth is yes it gets extremely cold here specially in spring and summer. I Edgar grew up in this city of love and understanding of gays and culture . so for the city I call home I want to let you know that I love the city to the bottom of my heart and will always live here and die here. Every day is a new day for happiness every day is a new day to see the world at my fingertips I am never alone I will always be understood in this dirty filthy interesting city specially with all the crime/all the fun that is in the city and the crazy people that are around here. I understand that I’m not a perfect person I understand that things may not always be put together in light and the people around me may not understand who I am as a person in this world specially with autism. my street photography my portography in general is a photograph of a journal of mine of the meaningfulness of being a photographer in a loneliness type of song that I have but in the end I am a human I live my life the way it is I have no plans for the kids etc. so for me with autism I just want to say this it doesn’t matter who we are it doesn’t matter what we do judging a book by its cover changing who you are because of someone else’s opinion doesn’t change their opinion on the creative side one another even if that means it’s political or any other means of faith religious beliefs or identities of who you are gender wise can we just live our lives the way we want it to be. so here it is for you reading this long bio on basically how I am doing in my photography in the streets of San Francisco California and Oakland California can say this I’m not a perfect person I’m not the best person I could be all the time but I am the person I can’t be the person I will be just because one guy with a camera is creepy or nice doesn’t mean that that being a person in this community especially the person with autism can be understood in great detail the passion one has. The tools of the trade of photography to me that I have learned in college the past 4 to 5 years is basically just learning how to understand people because most people photograph people not just people photographing things and objects it’s really the point is who we are and what we see in general the identity of who we are as a species and up as of a person in society and year 2021 and beyond.

San Francisco CA ‘ 20/23 |
In Oakland CA ‘ to San Francisco East bay to north bay ‘ Each part of this city has so much yo offer . Its up to the city officials for guidance and advice and help those- known locals to See good in city SF.
Being part of this place i call home. Oakland to San Francisco each , day i see that there is lots of places and things to do , this city is based on the food / cultures and mix type backgrounds and those who are creating the future of technologies- What Silicon Valley people see – Tech nerds and those who do art / photography Videography or other meaningful things task , also their is lots that we don’t quite know about people and those who ” yes are homeless ” but their part what makes this city good / bad. To say that this city needs clean up ” yes and no ” its up to the mayors who elected by us the people no matter what type city big or small.
” I Take Each day As Its My Last “
To say that San Francisco is the most popular place isn’t my own personal opinion but otherwise everyone wants be here • but their is still lots bad out their. Each metropolitan city deals with bad actors.
Usually its San Francisco bay Has the Lunar festivals , Which is most expansive And Lots of asian ‘ American and mix cultures cramped in this mid sized city. San Francisco to Oakland Now is all about Chinese festivals ‘ and festivities .

The smells of gutters the sounds of Homeless individuals , the sights of Collage students and the ideals of Transformation , connections. Oakland has lots to offer when it’s there in plan sight .
When you truly understand the downtown uptown nature I call home. I realize and you should To that Oakland , is more then an open city , a city to be capitalized and thrown in the gutter. If you truly see eye to eye you can understand Were this City lies , from the shops from the street lamps and many in between. Downtown Oakland ‘ and the Ideal Downtown uptown depends if you value its offer, ” For Sure I value this offer”
