If you’re planning to attend next Friday’s night photography art show event in Alameda, you may have noticed the moon will be full. Well, pack the camera and tripod, because the nearby Alameda Naval Air Station has some interesting historic buildings to photograph. I’ve prepared a detailed Google Map of locations on the base, and many of the map points link to my Alameda Naval Air Station gallery.
Remember, the Bay Bridge will be closed on Friday. If you’re traveling to Alameda from San Francisco by car, you can go over Highway 92. Or take BART to 12th Street/Oakland City Center, and hop on the AC Transit #51 bus which drops you off right next to Lucky Ju Ju at Webster and Santa Clara (10 minute ride, $2). While the spread might not quite match up to the Alameda Naval Air Station Officers’ Club banquet below, it’ll still be a fun time. If you’re looking to get some food before the show, Calafia Taqueria is a block away, right next to the Fireside Lounge. Hope to see you at the show!
