The Strata and Layers of San Francisco Street Detritus

San Francisco is a special city. A walk down any street will show you its' hidden face. It's a city of hieroglyphics. As you walk you slowly submerge yourself in the accumulated strata and leftover energies of 60 plus years of underground culture. Shreds of paper reveal the accumulated paper trail of Beats, Hippies, Punks, Ravers, Hip-Hop Heads. Everywhere your eye wanders pieces of a vibrant and never-ending story unfold.

Ambiguous messages from the collective artistic impulses of thousands of souls. A name, a phrase, a bit of lettering. Some small and sacred reminders of lives lived and dreams dreamed.
