Job 5990. These guys go good work.

P1230986Photo on the sidewalk, portraying construction. These guys do good work,

P1230985Looks like a map of a European country. Actually it’s a place on the floor of a garage where some solvent ate the paint.

P1230978Sad but true. This town, anymore.

East Palo Alto’s Night Out

August 12, 2014

P1230951Every year, East Palo Alto has a Night Out event, to have the people meet the police.

P1230956Free hamburgers and hot dogs are provided, also watermelon. And they have a bouncy house.

P1230954

P1230964They have the same event in Menlo Park, with a dunk tank. A splendid time was had by all.

Abandoned Footwear Plus the Usual Visuals

August 6, 2014

P1230889

Another in our abandoned footwear series. Check back often for more. This one had a happy ending: when we walked by a couple of hours later, the shoes were gone. I’m sure they found a happy home.

P1230909Oakland, huh? Is that near San Jose?

I told my girlfriend I was going to write a manifesto. Oh yeah, she said, that always seems to work out well for people.

Prolific Mollusk

July 23, 2014

P1230897Pobrecito used to be the most prolific graffiti artist in the Tenderloin, likely in the whole of SF. He’s faded away, perhaps he’s too busy with law school, or a new baby. The new champion is this artist, who makes something that looks like a mollusk, ore maybe a squid.

P1230898His work is everywhere, mostly written on metal using china markers.

P1230910Here’s and exception.

P1230928And another. This is clearly a person on a mission.
