The Frank Bette Center sponsors "Alameda on Camera" each February.
The center assigned 48 shutterbugs random pieces from the Alameda puzzle to photograph. The center encouraged the photographers to present their images in creative ways.
Juan D. Cruz saw people enjoying the early morning at the beach. Steve Elbert was intrigued by shapes and shadows of a man walking his dog. Karen Braun Malpas pulled the photo into pathways of design. Everyone presented Alameda in a deeply felt new light.
