Marin County and Angel Island are off in the distance.

The Lyon Street steps are quite famous, and rightly so (garden terraces aren't common here, so it is special), and so I somehow had never been down the Baker Street Steps before.
It's nice to have a lush green block on that steep slope.

With my planned photo outing waiting on better weather, I went out to see if I can figure out what the camera REALLY sees, since the viewfinder is intended for multiple film formats, and what the camera sees varies depending on focusing distance. Sometimes, I guessed well. Sometimes, I did not guess well.
This is the first time I've passed this mural and could capture it without annoying people standing near it! It is SO FESTIVE, especially on a gray day like today.
This is by artist Johanna Poethig (johannapoethig.com), and it wraps around the building - these are just images from the Golden Gate Avenue side, there is more of it in Hyde Street.
Well, I'm joking, but only barely. (Jeanne Gang's Studio Gang gets the credit.)
This is next to the prior post, on Olive at Larkin. I REALLY LIKE the colors and contrast in this one. I've been trying to look up who did it, but the internet keep showing me a different, older mural there. (Yes, I tried a Google image search using this image AND I checked at sfmuralarts pages for the neighborhood. It showed me about six other images that have adorned the same wall!)
Part of me thinks you would really need your neon artist to already know Thai to get the shapes right, but maybe I'm just hung up on my bad stroke order in my Japanese studies, which makes me doubt everything. I'm sure neon artists are really adaptable!
