As I prepare the last fairly long entry before I skip town, I would like to make some recognition of all the interesting stencils that you can find on the sidewalks of San Francisco, throughout the Mission District, where I live.
Sometimes the stencils are political,
and sometimes they are advertising,
But more often they are little pieces of art.
And sometimes there is even hand-drawn graffiti made to look stenciled.
All of these photos were taken in an area bounded by 17th and 24th Streets to the north and south and Bartlett and Dolores to the east and west.
