Eyes on the Street: No Parking, San Francisco


Created with flickr slideshow.

One of the most ubiquitous admonitions in the urban landscape is the No Parking sign. Many are your garden-variety plastic number, for sale at the hardware store, hardly creative. All over San Francisco, however, folks have taken matters into their own hands and crafted some excellent variations. Whenever I've got my camera handy and I'm walking around the city, I find a new one that impresses. I've tried here to cluster a few of my favorite No Parking signs in this slideshow by type, whether by pattern, location, or color.  I hope you enjoy.

Many thanks also for consistently uploading your shots to our Flickr pool. Feel free to upload your favorite No Parking signs or leave a link in the comments.

Unfortunately, my favorite No Parking sign in San Francisco has already been taken down, presumably by the new renter of the garages space, who didn't feel quite this strongly about the issue:
