Also spotted at 17th and Lincoln across from this work. Leaves you to wonder if it’s part of the same show.

This new street art show will be at 17th and Lincoln until someone in need of a chair comes by to claim it.

Last week I was driving down Lincoln behind a car (not the one pictured here) with plates that read “SF Surf”. When I went to take a picture, the driver of the car gave me a shake of the Shaka sign. The light changed and I didn’t end up getting the picture but smiled for a few blocks anyway.

I’ve seen a few tweets about this New York Times slide show on the Outer Sunset by Rachel Levin. I’m not a Sunset native so I don’t have too much opinion on whether the Outer Sunset was  a ” bleak neighborhood” before but I’d sure love to know what the driver of this car (pictured above) with the San Francisco native sticker thinks about it or what you think. I’d like to think s/he would give a shake of the Shaka sign in Levin’s direction and then spend a day enjoying this hood as she suggested by heading out to Trouble for a coconut and cinnamon toast, grabbing some lunch at Outerlands, and then heading over to Woodshop to see what new treasures they have. Of course s/he would probably then finish the day by meeting some friends at the Riptide for a drink. It sounds pretty nice to me but I think s/he would probably do some surfing/spend some time at the beach during that day too.

How about you? What would your perfect day in the Sunset look like?

UPDATE: OB Bulletin just tweeted that the photos in the slide show are from local photog Lianne Milton. You ‘ll definitely want to go here to see the photos that didn’t make the NYT slide show. Make sure you check out the rest of Milton’s blog while you’re at it.

UPDATE 2: Mission Mission just posted about the NYT slide show too. See it here.

Don’t you think the Ocean Beach Kelly’s Cove website should win some kind of award for best graphics of current conditions? Seriously, every time I look at this thing I am amazed- it’s beautiful! You have to go to their site to see the rest of it and it’s so worth it. Enjoy!

After the recent Ocean Beach invasion, jellyfish are starting to pop up all over the city. We Built This City just posted these two photos below of jellyfish art spotted around the city. This first photo was taken at Fillmore and Waller and the second photo was taken at Guerrero and Duboce. So now the question is:  Do we all just have jellyfish on the brain or will we see them become a permanent San Francisco fixture after this? More importantly, where in the city will they pop up next?

Update: AC and Zach of The A to Z Show talk Ocean Beach jellyfish on their weekly broadcast.

Update 2: Sunset Local‘s Lindsey Graham-Jones found (or made?) this  jellyfish art on the beach with the actual jellyfish in it.

And what kind of art is he making at the beach?
