A fun afternoon can be had if you spend it at the Cartoon Art Museum here in San Francisco. For something a little different than spending it one of the bigger museums in town try it at the Cartoon Art Museum. There are permanent exhibits and traveling temporary exhibits so you might catch something really fun like the Beetle Bailey and Batman exhibits that are running currently. For adults it only costs 7 dollars so its a great deal and you are supporting cartoons. What more could you ask for?
I love this building but what is it? A museum? An office building? It’s just so cool looking for a plain jane office building. It’s right at 654 Mission Street almost at the corner of New Montgomery Street. Go check it out if you haven’t as it is quite cool. But gosh I hope they put it to good use!
I actually really love this sculpture at the new building at 555 Mission Street. It’s a sculpture by Jonathan Borofsky which I had never heard of but after a little research I found out some really cool info about this artist.
The sculpture is 36 feet tall and uses 62 painted life size figures that are bolted together to make this piece. It’s very colorful and it’s perfectly set right in the courtyard of the new 555 Mission Street building.
Go check it out sometime if you have not seen it.
Check the photos that I shot below for San Francisco Photos (SFPhotorama.com).
Check out Jonathan Borofsky’s website for more info about Human Structures.
I love this shot of the interior of Foreign Cinema. It almost doesn’t look like Foreign Cinema but it certainly is Foreign Cinema. I shot this very early on an evening during the week and it had been quite some time since I had been there. I think the last time was 2000 so it was 8 years or so.
Anyway I do like the place and the food and cocktails are awesome! It’s just so out of the way. Darn!
One of the great classic old theaters on Mission Street left to decay and rust away. It’s sad to see these beautiful old theaters and nothing has been done to save them unfortunately. I wish there was someway to save these theaters and use them for something that would prevent from falling into the same situation that it is in.
I wanted to photograph the El Capitan Theater so that I can study the beautiful architecture and design of this beautiful building.
I can only imagine back in the day how this theater was in operation. Takes me back!
