San Francisco's Mission District

The Sunday before last the Caliber Group held it's third "photo-walk", and this time we -- all 40 - 50 of us -- made a pretty thorough search for photo-opportunities in the Mission District. A fine time was had by all!

This (above) is detail on one of San Francisco's Victorians, or as many like to call them; Painted Ladies. Ornate and colorful, isn't it?

This is a T-shirt printing company, and apparently they are more proud of their work than they are of their grammar. (((I should talk; l.o.l.)))

And this is San Francisco's beloved Frank Chu with his ever-present and very mysterious sign. Frank has been our mascot and leader on the last two Caliber photo-walks -- and it has been nice to have his sign as a marker for where the group is headed.

Oh, you want me to explain Frank's sign? Sorry, you'll have to ask him yourself. Good luck understanding Frank's theories, but he will patiently explain the convoluted concepts behind those words if you have time.

I'm pretty sure that when the artist who painted this mural gets to the Pearly Gates, they will get extra bonus-points for having done such a nice job.
