One of the most enjoyable things about living in the city of San Francisco is how visually dynamic it is. There is simply art everywhere, but not in a way that inundates you. The most interesting pieces are hidden away in nooks and crannies, and many people often overlook the “candy”  placed in prominent locations.  ART on STREETS highlights this city’s art through the lens of a “Polaroid”  camera (except it’s an app on the phone).

This row of whimsical umbrellas really caught my eye because it was such an unexpected encounter. The installation stretches about half a block down 17th and Florida streets, an “in between” area of San Francisco-part Mission and part Potrero Hill. The buildings in this neighborhood are architecturally pretty simple, consisting of warehouses and loft spaces, or some combination thereof. As a result, “chunky” and “rectangular” describe much of what you see here. Amidst this boxy landscape, umbrellas sway back and forth in the wind.
