Mural Photo Puzzle, 9 June 2015! (Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid)

Standard

Good Evening:

This might prove one of my toughest puzzles yet. First, the vivid mural as a whole:

And yes, this is another of the new murals on Erie Street. Next, I present some closeups of the artwork.

Can you locate the closeups in the mural as a whole?

Yes I do think one will pose more difficulties than usual. Have fun!

New Photo Puzzle! (Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid)

Standard

Good Evening:

I’ve done a few of these before, so you might already know the rules. First, this mural in the Lower Haight, product of a artist with a most vivid imagination:

Now, some closeups:

And now, the challenge: can you place the closeups in their proper locations in the mural?

Have fun.

New San Francisco Murals, 6 June 2015. (Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid.)

Standard

Good Morning:

Living in San Francisco, possibly the world’s most “muralized” city in terms of murals per square mile, kinda sorta gives one an easy source of inspiration for vivid pictures. Erie Street in the Mission District, actually more of an alley, has served as a canvas for artists for years. The murals normally don’t last more than a year before replacement; here are four of the newer ones.

San Francisco Food Trucks, 5 June 2015. (Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid)

Standard

Good Evening:

When we discuss instant traditions only a few years old in San Francisco that have hung around since the 1800s (or something like that), we must discuss the Friday lunch hour food trucks that gather just across the street from City Hall. The tradition: the work week has almost ended, let’s get lunch and a side order of fresh air, sunshine, cool breezes, greenery and shade.

The challenge for the trucks: standing out in the crowd and drawing customers.

The solution: Colors. Really. Vivid. Colors.

For example (all shots taken with my iPhone 6 Plus):

I like the front of the Liba Truck:

Yes, that’s a mirror image of “FALAFEL” like a mirror image of “AMBULANCE.” Which makes sense: when hunger has become an emergency, falafels come to the rescue. The next truck look restrained by comparison, but when you look at what they sell, basic black is fine for Bacon Bacon.

Ah, but you, my clever and intelligent reader, you are asking a clever and intelligent question! “Does all this wildly colorful decoration-slash-advertising work? Do these bright and vivid colors draw hungry crowds to these trucks?”

Behold the answer:
