Dolores Park and Mission Murals

Mission Murals - Balmy Alley , San Francisco
Dolores Park - bounded by Church, Dolores, 18th and 20th Street, San Francisco

It's first day of 2009. Most shops were closed and streets were quiet. San Francisco is never lack of entertainment if you like sightseeing. We wondered around Dolores Park area and visited the colorful mural-filled Balmy Alley in Mission District where Artists turned the garage doors and fences of the alley into beautiful art.

Front porch of this house looks like a fortress.

This house has a big bird cage in the front yard which is full of luscious greens.
