"Street. Signs . . . "


I thought I'd share a bit of our local flavor today . . . as well as one of my favourite aspects of San Francisco.  You see.  You'll be driving in the 'South of Market' area near my office.  And suddenly be faced with one of these stark - enormous - and delightful murals.  All the murals are the work of artist Rico 23.

So.  For a slightly hectic Wednesday afternoon.  Why don't your hop in the cyber-car with me.  Let's take the top down.  Crank up some good top-40 radio.  Maybe grab a diet coke. 

And drive around San Francisco . . . 

Unfortunately, because of the growth of the city - a few of these are no longer visible - so I you've been doing a bit of time-traveling as well.

Remember - keep those seat belts buckled at all times,

Cool! Street art in SF is fun in many ways, just by looking at them paints a smile on one's face.
