Art that makes you trespass.

Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, California

Artists: Unknown
Location: Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, California
Photographer: Adam Sass

Photographer's Comments: I discovered these pieces while exploring Telegraph Hill via two steep pedestrian walkways that lead from the base of the hill to Coit Tower. The walkways run through the lush green strips interrupting Greenwich and Filbert Streets near Sansome Street, as seen in this Google satellite image. I don't know the identity of the artists (yet), and the titles listed below are simply my own provisional ones suggested by the subject matter.
