Bernal Heights

Walked up and down several San Francisco hills in the afternoon with a friend. We ended up out in Bernal Heights watching a fog bank creep toward the downtown skyscrapers.

Holly Park inhabits the top of a Bernal Heights hill. As we watched, the fog encroached further, closing off the panoramic views one by one.

Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi supervise the passage of a leaking oil tanker through the Golden Gate Bridge and the three ships of Christopher Columbus symbolically sink into the Bay in this Bernal Heights mural full of righteous surrealism.
