A beautiful Spring afternoon in San Francisco. A California Street Cable Car approaches the terminal at Drumm Street to switch directions and begin the return trip toward Van Ness.
Looks like a haunted house, right? A set from a horror movie? Alfred Hitchcock’s home?
I don’t know, I just like how this picture looks kind of sinister in black and white with shadows flowing away from the lantern.
For what it’s worth, it’s just another old building on my street.
I was quoted in the Examiner this morning. What they didn’t include in the article is that the street artists work together with the city to assist every event at Justin Herman Plaza throughout the year and would have gladly worked
together with this event as well.
The street artists could certainly have been allowed to work there as usual in the week before the event since Market Street and the plaza were still open to pedestrians during the event setup. Presumably the street artists could also be allowed to work there in the week after the event if the street and the plaza are again open to pedestrians while the event is tearing down.
Bringing in the street artists would have been a great way for that large sports organization to show values of community and inclusion with a group that has been working at — and helping the city run — Justin Herman Plaza since the mid 1970s.

I really like how a picture of just one part of a sign changes the meaning or makes the image more artistic or interesting. In this case the sign includes added texture from spray paint and graffiti paint. Do you know what this sign is advertising?
This picture is on the last ferry boat of the evening. A bunch of teenagers are downstairs on the first deck making noise and yelling at each other. We’re up here where it’s quiet on the top deck.
