The Colours of Berkeley

This time when I visited Berkeley, I took snapshots of the “true colours” of Berkeley, which reflected a glimpse of its past fame as the focal point of counterculture, hippies, and antiwar demonstrations in the 1960s.

Here is a walk down Telegraph Avenue and Shattuck Avenue, lined with cafes, bookstores, graffiti, handicrafts, clothing, and incense shops, and shops filled with quirky things.  The spirit of self-expressions has never been lost in this place, contributing to this university town’s uniqueness.
