This is the Inkworks Press building on 7th Street in Berkeley. Last winter I was speaking with an artist who said she was working, along with other people, on this building mural... when it wasn't raining. I decided to bicycle past the building early on Saturday morning to see what progress had been made. Job Complete! 14 August.

It appears there's a renaissance in outdoor building art within the San Francisco Bay Area.

This is the south wall of the Virginia Street Bakery on Shattuck Avenue and Virginia Street in Berkeley. This mural was completed in June 2010. Note glorious Mount Tamalpais in the background of the mural. Uh, yes, I will try to get a photo without a car in the image! 15 August.

The artists and sponsors of this work of art

Alice Waters' world famous Chez Panisse Restaurant, Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley. Well, in Berkeley we like to think it is world famous! 15 August.

Ok, I know I am going to get hassled about my next statement... but here goes: I don't consume red meat, and I love In-N-Out Burger! You think that statement is an oxymoron? I respect your opinion, but I believe you are mistaken.

1616 Virginia Street, Berkley, California. 15 August.

These sure look like Kiwifruit. Magic Gardens, Berkeley, California. 14 August.
