Street Art in San Fran!

One of my favorite parts of this trip was snapping shots of all the amazing graffiti art and architecture. San Francisco has some of the best street art I have ever seen. Even the random tagging and what is probably considered vandalism has a certain quality. I found it all very inspirational. Click on photos to enlarge.

Flashy graffiti... somewhere.


Mural on the side of the City Lights Bookstore (where the beat poets hung out) in Northbeach.


Mural on the opposite side of the mural above! It was a very nice alley!


I can't remember where I found the murals below...

Wonderful inspiration. I'm often inspired by things like this, but don't think to photograph them. Great tip.
