I took some pictures from the southern hills.






It is interesting view from there, the buildings in Skyport plaza and Civic Center look as if they are downtown. The airport looks like it is right behind the Adobe HQ and Riverpark Towers, and Levi's stadium looks like it is right next to the airport.

Christmas in the Park:











Sorry for the quality of the pictures, I'm not such a steady shot that I can take good night shots.

The artist confirmed this is still a work in progress, so I'm going to have to go back and get pictures of the final product.

Great pictures, I am a constant lurker on the SJ forum and didn't realize until today that there was a page dedicated to SJ images alone. Keep up the good work!

There has been more progress on the mural, and some vandalism











By Sunday there was more vandalism than this, someone had drawn fake cigarettes on some of the pandas mouths. It is any wonder that the artist community here seems to think the public doesn't support them. It really is a few bad apples.

If businesses across the street agree to allow cameras on their space I would gladly help pay for cameras on the mural.

I don't know, maybe SPUR, K zzang, or Zanotto's Express will agree to that.

Though I'm guessing in practice it would be easier to get volunteers to fix the mural every 2 weeks.

Thanks to PMBQ and their artists for creating this mural: http://instagram.com/p/yqILfpiZIa/

A shot of Paseo De San Antonio from Plaza de Cesar Chavez, presumably wet from the fountains.
