i had plans of taking many photos on my beautiful walk across town on thanksgiving to my friends' house. but i only took this one. (i think i was too busy concentrating on not thinking about the grocery bag chafing my hand and pulling on my shoulder.)
this photo is of part of a scene found in a window near duboce park. the scene has a fall/halloween theme, and this here, is a miniature windmill made of maps (hard to see for the reflection). ever since i've lived in sf, the artist who lives in this house and has a storefront-type window, has put such amazing, imaginative, crazy, beautiful, creepy, stunning pieces in his window. (i'm just going to assume it's a man since the house is in the castro and since i don't want to write his/her, s/he for the remainder of this post. but if any of you know different, do correct.) he changes the window pretty frequently (i'd say monthly or seasonally). i wonder if he has documented all his displays and if he presents his art elsewhere as well, or just here for the neighbors, passersby. i'm very curious. now that there is the cute duboce park cafe on the corner, perhaps i should spy on the house and see who this character is....
have any of you fellow san franciscans seen this window?
wow, i just noticed each spoke (or whatever it's called) has a different state map on it.
