Ghost Ship Memorial Late December 2016

I ventured to the site of the Ghost Ship Fire (12/2/16, Oakland, CA) in late December to pay respects to a childhood friend, John Igaz, and the other victims. It was surprisingly cathartic and peaceful. The site itself had an eerie stillness and calm. The evidence of the fire was chilling, but the tributes were touching. John and I both grew up in Alameda, and the site was just over the High Street Bridge to Alameda. For some reason, I take comfort in the fact that John was not far from home. Here are some photos, link to more below.
