When people pile their discarded Christmas trees on the street for pickup in Oakland, the juvies set fire to them. It is a merry blaze, that the fire department often does not respond to. I miss seeing that. This picture is from bakingnotwriting’s condo complex. Not one will set fire to the these discarded trees because they are piled up inside a gated community, not on the streets of Oakland. Oakland, I miss thee and thy aberrant ways.
