I strongly believe that everyone should have a creative outlet. A way to be artistic. Lucky for us, Alameda has a plethora of ways to make this possible. Like art classes, dance classes, choir, writing and jewelry classes, too.
I believe that most people agree that the arts are important, however, most of us do not make it a priority. Not only is it not at the top of our list, somehow it often gets pushed aside indefinitely. But fear not! Even if yon don't have a ton of extra cash to spend on artistic classes, Alameda is the perfect place to get your creative juices flowing for next to nothing. It's chalk full of postcard-perfect places to write, paint, draw and photograph. The best part is that all you need is a pencil and paper.
And don't forget that most cell phones have built-in cameras nowadays so becoming a photographer is extremely convenient. Literally all you have to do is reach in your pocket, pull out your phone, point and click. With the beautiful island of Alameda as your backdrop, channeling your inner Ansel Adams has never been easier.
Personally, I love not having to go down to the drug store to develop film anymore. I do not miss only getting one or two good pictures out of an entire roll of film. Today, the delete button is one of my closest friends.
And when I say Alameda is a great studio, I mean it! We have some classic subject matter ready and waiting for your imagination and creativity. Victorian houses, vintage cars, beautiful beachy sunsets and elegant architectural elements. Simply add some imagination and creativity and all the sudden you've created a masterpiece!
I asked some friends for home-grown photos that have something to do with Alameda, so take a look at the attachments. Some are pretty amazing!
Stop looking at all the reasons why you can't do something and focus on the ways that you can.
Art is out there Alameda, go find it.
