The following pictures are just three out of the thousands of photos of San Francisco taken by my mother, Anita Davis, during the mid 80′s and early 1990′s.
She taught me everything I know about photography, and I’m thankful for the chance to share her work with the world.
From her office window, she had a great view of the demolition of the Embarcadero Freeway.
Here’s a blurry shot of some fellow marchers in the 1992 St. Stupid’s Day parade. In case you can’t make it out, the man on the left is sporting an awesome ”Free Pee-Wee” t-shirt!
This sweet ride was photographed near the long-gone graffiti mecca once known as Psycho City! Remember when there was graffiti in San Francisco? I miss that shit. I miss the wild places with broken windows, the feral weeded lots and crumbling brick…I miss the shopping carts and the overpass…
I miss the city, and this city’s missing soul.
