4x5 Gallery: San Francisco Found.
Review by RWM: Nice to be here for old San Francisco. Great to visit these days of the past and to see the comfortable forms and shapes that do not have all the extremes of today. These images give viewers the choice to be either detectives or shoppers. Fun nonetheless... and consoling. That past may still be there for some, but it has been grown over by the present.

3rd & Townsend circa 1950s. It's a McDonald's now. That's progress for ya'.
Needles & Pens: John Dwyer - Landlord Apocalypse.
Comment by AB: John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees band whips up an elaborate graphite commentary on the matter of skyrocketing rents in San Francisco. Who gets pinched way more than most? The artistic creative community and the very people who make our city such a vibrant, liberated, expressive, all-inclusive and outstanding place to live. It's not a pretty situation right now. Buy some art; support the cause.
