Found in San Francisco: Hayes Valley

Many neighborhoods in San Francisco gain their interest and character from their historical relevance, however, Hayes Valley is one area that has only recently gained prominence in the past 15 years. Once a troubled area located next to the Van Ness performing-arts district, Hayes Valley is now home to numerous art galleries, restaurants and trendy boutiques. Each store is rich in character and individuality. Whether or not you can afford the high-end merchandise, entering the interior space of each store or gallery is worth the visit. Each space is more interesting than the next with the use of unusual materials and diversity of colors and textures.

This collection of photos aims to capture the artistic edge to the stores and galleries in Hayes Valley.

Nice slideshow Colvin! See, this is why I love the "Found In" posts— I still can't believe I haven't made it out to San Fran yet, but at least I get to tour it this way!
