San Francisco :: Part 9 :: Union Square & Haight

Our hotel was only a block from Union Square (pictured above) and Market Street, where there is amazing shopping! I probably could have spent another entire week just shopping! This is one of the over 130 hearts around the city, painted by recognized and emerging artists as part of the "Hearts in San Francisco Project" to benefit The San Francisco General Hospital.

These street performers were hilarious. I loved the slow hip hop they were playing, but have not a clue what it is. They were doing some interesting dance moves. This guy's hair was great! They were funny, but not as funny as the Bush Man in Fisherman's Wharf. The guy makes $60,000 a year scaring people from behind a fake bush! See videos on You Tube. Now he was funny!

While my husband was getting some ink, I took the bus to Haight-Ashbury or The Haight. Everyone told me it was the old hippie area with tons of little shops, etc. They weren't exactly my type of shops, but I did like Loyal Army and Doe (not pictured).

Loyal Army was very colorful! (above and below)

*I have been asked what kind of camera I use. My photos really aren't that great, but I do love my camera. It's a Canon PowerShot SD880 IS 10.0 Mega Pixels, which gives you very large files, so I always make them smaller to post otherwise they take forever to upload. It's a small camera that easily fits into your purse. Read how I came across this camera here.
