New Year’s Day Walk – Mission District, San Francisco, January 1, 2018



I had the privilege to shadow a San Francisco-based friend who took me around to photograph the murals at San Francisco’s Mission District around Valencia St. We basically walked around the neighborhoods surrounding Hayes Valley where he does his daily walks. Valencia St. is quite interesting – lots of gentrification (or more appropriately, hipsterification), old art deco buildings transformed into something else, cafes, dive bars, thrift stores, the famous Roxie theater (which I forgot to take a photo of) and murals … lots of legit and guerilla murals. I only had my iPhone with me, so I didn’t get to photograph much details. But I was happy. I certainly have to go back there and photograph some more.

Have a look!
