SF Mission District Murals

The murals in the Mission District of San Francisco (near the BART stations at 16th & Mission and 24th & Mission) are among the great public art projects in any US city. Here are the three chosen by Peter Turnley for the final slide show of his street photography workshop.

South Embarcadero, San Francisco

Two scenes along the Embarcadero south of the Ferry Building: An old woman dwarfed by a giant modern sculpture in a reflecting pool, and a photo artist in her exhibit space with her early morning photo at Machu Picchu.

Market Street, San Francisco

In one of the walk-arounds in the Peter Turnley San Francisco Workshop, I walked down Market Street toward the Ferry Building and Embarcadero. Here are two chosen by Turnley from Market Street, where both homeless people and craftsmen/vendors hang out.

SF Workshop: Dolores Park

The second location Turnley suggested for the second day of his workshop was Dolores Park in SF's Mission District. The park, a large expanse of rolling grassland, was filled on a sunny Sunday with a myriad of mostly young people: playing games, doing gymnastics, twirling various things, and being musical – San Francisco in one of its most attractive moods. Here are a couple of my best photos from the afternoon.
