On the first Tuesday of each month the San Diego Food Bank makes a huge delivery of produce to those in need. The drop off is at the Bread of Life Rescue Mission in Oceanside, CA. I grabbed my camera and took a few shots, some didn’t seem to mind, one woman yelled at me, “Please,lady don’t take my picture.” It was already too late, so I honored her request by cropping her out. The video is now on Youtube at:
The director of the mission, Steve Bassett informed the crowd I might be taking pictures for him. I tried not to be obvious as I meandered around the crowd. Bread products come from various stores and bakeries and are also handed out that day.
Every year I look forward to hearing the roar of bikes rolling into Oceanside to the annual BFC Bike Blessing and Rally. This year money was raised to support the Warrior Foundation and the Downed Biker Fund. Here’s some of the shots of the day. Plus a great little video one guy took with his cell phone of this 91 years young grandma, who was gracious enough to let me take some pics of her. Hope you enjoy.
The Bike Blessing Rally was packed, riders came in from Riverside, Orange County, San Diego – no doubt places further since the weather was ride worthy. Might have been the economy, but I didn’t see as many custom bikes as in previous years. Still, plenty of chrome, paint and goodies to enjoy both outside and in Kennedy’s Custom Cycles in Oceanside where the Rally was held. Random shots in the mid-day sun.
Look carefully and you will see the homeless woman behind the chain link fence watching the riders rolling in.
