Is this a crime?  A work of art?  Or both?

Where did the car go?

First the car disappeared, then the wheel and Denver Boot vanished.

While hustling about from Occupy Sproul Plaza to Occupy Oakland,   a photographer/columnist has to keep an eye pealed (?) for good features shots.    

A wheel on a pedestal, on a side street in Berkeley, looked like a discarded work of art, but upon closer inspection, it seemed to be the case of the missing car where some clever person discarded a wheel with a Denver Boot and outwitted the local police agency.

Op Ed News concentrates on political news and punditry, but recently a series   of feature photos drew a goodly number of viewers, so the columnist/photographer decided to post these feature photos which tell the story of the case of the missing car in images only.

Since the Jalopnik website uses car oriented news and photos we will give their editorial department permission to cross post any/all of these photos on their site for their audience of car-heads.

The day after these photos were taken the Wheel and the Denver Boot were gone.   Perhaps a column update will be written and posted during the week when UCB students are scheduled to go out on strike (Harvard is rumored to be planning a show of sympathy at the same time), the UCB regents will meet in San Francisco, and Occupy Oakland faces a new eviction process, if the columnist/photographer can squeeze such a Denver Boot update into the schedule.


BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
