After exploring Fisherman's wharf we picked up Dallas from work (yes he was working on a Saturday...I don't know how he does it!) We drove up to Union Square which was saturated with swarms of women signed up to run the Nike Woman's Marathon. After a very chaotic couple hours of shopping, Dallas took us to an incredibly cool building on Howard and sixth streets. The bottom level is covered in graffiti which made the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot (Dallas was extremely happy about that!) The building is abandoned but an artist by the name of Brian Goggin along with one hundred volunteers petitioned the city to allow them to basically use the building as a canvas. It's entitled "Defenestration" which means "to throw someone or something out of a window." I'm sure they were trying to make some kind of political statement, but I'm not totally clear on what. There are several floors with an eclectic array of furniture jutting from the outside walls. My favorite is the couch sticking out the window. Once again, there is no place like San Francisco!
