Found in San Francisco: Haight-Ashbury

Historically known as the center of the 1960s hippie movement, San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district is still one of the most colorful and diverse areas. Today, the Haight continues to absorb the bohemian culture created over 40 years ago. Walking around the Haight-Ashbury district you will find numerous colorful buildings often covered in artful graffiti and storefronts with unique signage. In the few blocks surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury is an abundance of independent local businesses including restaurants, hooka bars, music and book stores, and clothing boutiques. The collection of photographs I have taken in and around the Haight represent the architecture, art, and lively culture of this purely unique San Francisco district.

Meghan, I am so excited about visiting San Francisco now! Great pictures. That looks like such an interesting area.

Don't lie, I am sure you buy a lot of those hippie frocks.

Nice pictures, Colvin! I love that you and Martin are on the same wavelength with the graffiti this Monday morning, too!
