San Francisco is a city that embraces art and expression of many kinds. Graffiti and urban artwork can be found on pretty much every corner. While some of it is actually destructive vandalism, we wanted to highlight the mural art that shows true talent and adds color to some of the city streets.
(Our lunch walks often take us down Pacific Street close to the North Beach end. This mural is on the back of a very cute coffee shop and you know how we love getting our caffeine on)
(Haight Street is an infamous area that I live close to. It is full of all kinds of “colorful” people and the walls are no different. I read the word “Smile” in this, do you?)
(Brittany gets lost in the colors)
(This rainbow is full of tiny drawings iconic to San Francisco. The orange area is my favorite illustrating the unique look of the typical San Francisco home)
(Looks like I’m at the end of this rainbow)
(This reminds me of Medusa meets Alien. Brittany loved it so much, she had to give it kisses)
(But a weird Frog King- I am terrified of!)
There hundreds of super cool murals in the city, could never share them all. But there are some that really brighten our days, proving that not all graffiti is bad!

We searched for some of SF’s most interesting and colorful tags and Haight St seemed to bring out the winning pieces.
I’ve always been amazed at how people can be so artistically talented. It’s refreshing when abilities are used in a positive way. Thanks for sharing.
We are lucky that we live in a great area with awesome street art! It is really pretty and super cool!
Wonderful images Chelsea.. the street arts and their depiction along with your photography was really wonderful to watch..
