Paramount

[human] behavior 2012/10/11

i have finally been to the Paramount Theater in Oakland! if you know anything about that city, then you understand what this means. its hard not to go overboard describing the place – its an historic theater, built in the 1930s, and its a gorgeous example of art deco at its best. i was at the theater because a friend was becoming naturalized as a US citizen, and even though i was already caught up in the gravity of the event, i was easily distracted by the location. it was just so beautiful!

it was a fitting place for my friend to be welcomed into the country. him and about 1100 others from 101 different countries. thankfully the people at NCIS have a decent sense of humor, so the ceremony was actually quite enjoyable. ..well, when i wasn’t staring off at the walls or sneaking shots of the ceiling *_*
