Togetherness – Monochrome Madness

Awhile ago, I was out taking pictures of a church and did my usual 360 degree turn to see what else might be interesting and saw this group of people walking away from me.   Their embrace and clothing signified unity to me and a closeness not often displayed here in this country.

It was appropriate too that they were walking away from me, defining the difference between how I would walk with friends or family on the street versus how they were moving down the pathway together.

The entire challenge can be found later on Leanne Cole’s Site “Monochrome Madness”  so please check it out.

Murals on Balmy Street, San Francisco

We went to The City yesterday to enjoy a one-man play called ‘The Scion’ by Brian Copeland at The Marsh theater in the Mission District.  If you’re in the area, I highly suggest this play and I think it runs for another couple weeks.   It was incredibly good!   Prior to the play we ate at a really great Mexican restaurant…umm yes, one of probably hundreds in the neighborhood, lol, and then walked around a bit.

We found an area called Balmy Alley where there were lots of murals on the walls and we noticed that there were tour guides explaining the murals to visitors.  I decided to put a gallery together containing some of the murals just because they are so vibrant and fun!
