I Heart San Francisco (and MyBlogLog too)

I have just joined MyBlogLog, so feel free to click here to join my community.

I had to spend about $300 in order to pay all the homeless people to get out of the way of this shot, but I think it was well worth it.

I like how cities are doing this artistic stuff and contracting with local artists. I’m not a fan of tax-supported public art, however. I heard that in Iceland that if you are a recognized, but unemployed artist, that the government will actually give you a regular stipend. Anyway, I digress.

Each corner of Union Square here in San Francisco had some uniquely painted heart. I thought this one was the coolest with the sky that day, so I had to grab a shot.

I Heart San Francisco

  • Wow, good shot.

  • Are these here every year? I seem to remember seeing these before?

  • I don’t know – it is the first time I have seen them.

  • You can read about the hearts at: http://www.heartsinsf.com/ . Apparently, this has been going on since 2004. Love your angle on Union Square. But then, I like most of your stuff.

  • There is the same thing in Sedona, AZ too but they are painted Wild Pigs. There are a couple of pics of them in my July 06 archive if you are interested. They are just odd, and frankly not really attractive.There must be 20 sets of them all over the town.
