Berkeley Pier & Marina - Berkeley, CA (6/30/2016)

Recently, I got a huge dust spot on my DSLR sensor. I found a great camera shop out in Berkeley, CA called Looking Glass Photo & Camera which offers sensor cleanings, had some great reviews, and had a turn around time of just a few days. I decided to go to them for sensor cleaning as I am too paranoid and my hands are way too shaky for me to get the job done myself. Anyways, they did a very good job and they even provided me before and after photos of after they finished cleaning. All they request is that your camera has a fully charged battery before you bring it in. I had a wonderful experience with this camera store and definitely recommend them.

So now, what does this have to do with anything? Well, I don't head out to Berkeley much because I live in Pleasanton. Sadly, I didn't find a local camera store here that offers the service. Since I was in Berkeley to pick up my camera, I decided to take my clean camera out for a spin out at Berkeley Pier and Berkeley Marina. I haven't been to this spot since I was a child. I still remember back then, I had a lot of fun walking on Berkeley Pier. The pier was so long, it seemed endless. I wanted to do this again, but was met with disappointment. Once I arrived, I found out Berkeley Pier is closed due to structural integrity issues. I was still able to get a few photos of the pier though, along with some photos from Berkeley Marina. In this blog post, I'm going to share the photos I took with you.
