San Fran Snapshot

The Mission District in San Francisco explodes with murals.  It is a wild mix of traditional Chicano imagery, contemporary spraycan styles and pieces painted by kids and other community members.   And the scale is small — garages, fences, low buildings.  Balmy Alley is the go-to  mural destination, but you can find murals on all kinds of streets and alleys in the Mission and beyond.  Here’s a snapshot — enjoy!

Vamos Gigantes (Let’s Go, Giants) at 19th and San Carlos:
