Today's EDBA Weekend Community Feature #MyEDBA comes from Amanda Nelson @artbyamanda33, who shares with us a selection of images from Fat Tuesday:

"Fat Tuesday, Feb. 13th, was the official kick off to the 40th Anniversary year of Carnaval SF. Mini parades marched through the Mission with venues all over the district hosted parties and performances. Gente de Cidade lead the parade from Bissau Baobab, and also performed there later in the evening. The young ladies of the Feline Finesse Dance Company put on a great performance, followed by Chavalos Danzas por Nicaragua and Conjunto Folkórico Panamá América."

Hashtag your images #MyEDBA or #everydaybayarea to be considered for future weekend features. #catchlighteveryday #CarnavalSF #FatTuesday #MardiGras

A patron enjoying the library with natural light flooding in through the huge glass windows. This redesigned Castro Valley library is a visual treat with the inclusion of beautiful art and modern design throughout the space. It was built in 2009 as an eco-friendly building with solar energy that provides 100% of the library's electricity needs, and uses paints and sealants that emit low or no volatile organic compounds with better air quality among various other green features. Once you make it there it is hard to leave if you find yourself a comfortable chair to lounge in.

This EDBA Weekend Community Feature #MyEDBA comes from Nanu Wolstenholme @n.wolstenholme, who shares with us a selection of her stark and usually peopleless images from all around the Bay Area.

“There is a nebulous area around all roads, industrial areas, cities... the walls sidewalks, alleyways, car parks that surround us, that are part of the tapestry of our visual landscape that most people don’t see, notice or find attractive. THESE are the parts that stand out for me.

“I have moved 26 times in my life, lived in 3 different countries (20yrs Spain, 15yrs UK and London, 7yrs Bay Area), and started taking photos at the age of 38. I can only describe my need to take these photos as a subconscious way of connecting with my new home, as if to feel its character and history by walking its streets.”

Me: What's one thing you remind yourself when your going through a tough season
Daryl: [pause] I always remind myself of my mother funeral...My sister and I spoke that day and it was beautiful. I love sharing the memories of my mom.
Me: okay, so tell me what was one way your mother made you laugh?
Daryl: ha, well she would always remind me no matter how old I got that she could still whoop my butt... Daryl and I both got a laugh out of that. I thanked him for sharing so openly... Putting my hand out for a shake, he opened his arms for a hug and he began to thank me.
My style of photography isn't about getting the shot, it's really about being present and focusing on the person in front of me. The hardest thing for me is to not think ahead and simply absorb what is being said to me. Even if I can't understand the person, i still listen, shake there hand, make eye contact and tell them "alright, I see you now”
