The Mission District is a colorful and seedy neighborhood. A nice mix of homeless, punk rockers, Mexican gang members and Guatemalan grandmothers. Faith No More, Beck, Primus and Luscious Jackson came form this neighborhood as well as many influential street artists whose outstanding graffiti and murals polka dot the walls like a large outdoor gallery. All three Banksys I was hunting had been white-washed but I wish I had another day to photograph some of the inspiring art I found.
