Wandering around The Mission in San Francisco I was struck by how pretty it is. No dull gray city stuff here. The Mission is named after Mission Delores, which was founded in 1776 and is the oldest building in SF. Mission Delores in featured in the Hitchcock movie Vertigo (one of my favorite) The area was been the home to Hispanic people for forever. It's easy to get to on BART (19th and 24th street stations). Go, if you ever visit SF.
There's art everywhere.....
This beautiful mural is on the side of a building. There's no information about the woman. She must have been well loved. RIP.
In a short ally off of 24th street are these wonderful murals.

I like how the artist painted roses on the sign post
Do you look up when walking?
I would have missed this if I didn't.
Glad to see the new business kept the old sign.
The store were I got the Day of the Dead and Frida socks.
Poetry happens , too.
The day after my birthday, I got kidnapped and taken to the Oakland Museum . It was the tail end of the annual Day of the Dead instillation. It's been happening for years.
For the artists Father. The black screen is make out of metal.
The museum has stickers that are a pointing finger that says "OK" which means you can touch whatever the finger is pointing at.
or sit in. This chair is metal and is meant to depict the famous chair Bobby Seal of the Black Panthers sat in back in the early 1970's. You can see the sticker on the left
as you can see the two Child Brides sat in it. I swear we did not share notes on dressing alike.
Hope you enjoyed my vacation photos. Tomorrow is the return of Weird Doll Wednesday.
