It is 52˚ and expected to rise to only 59˚. Details for the next ten days are here.

Today’s block: 14th to 15th Streets between Folsom and Shotwell, the FoodsCo block.

As I got off my bike I briefly lamented not taking the next block over, from 14th to 13th, because it is a cornucopia of wall art. But as it turns out, there’s no shortage of camera-worthy items on this block either, including an enormous mural on the Shotwell wall of FoodsCo that I actually didn’t manage to do much justice with my amateur photography skills. A gray, overcast morning and plenty of interesting geometry made this block fun for color comparisons, but of course there were other treasures to document as well.

With the light good early on, so much the better to sign on and document your block. Don’t wait! Let us know what day and block you would like at info@missionlocal.com.

You can see a map of all of the blocks here. The blocks in grey are being saved for others who have signed up. Let us save a block for you as well.
