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).
When I came across this truck I let out a little giggle. I mean, it’s a little farm in the bed of a truck, who wouldn’t stop to gawk and giggle? The reason this was so enjoyable to me, quite frankly, was that I was having a really strange and challenging day. I had decided to go on a long walk to clear my head, and that’s how I came across it, the perfect thing to help me change my view. While I was taking in the scene (checking out the strawberries and other plants in the bed of the truck), I noticed that people-complete strangers-were stopping to chat with each other. It seemed everyone needed that nice moment in the Mission on 18th Street, and I was happy to witness it.
