Asterisk 2.0

Asterisk 2.0

Several years ago my exploring buddy and I got ourselves into one of the most memorable adventures: a giant Asterisk shaped building with over 400 rooms. Well, there was actually two of them, and at the time the second one was … Continue reading

Container Yard

Container Yard

This bit of undeveloped land under a freeway is closed off with a layer of graffiti-covered shipping containers. Of all the spots I’ve visited, this place probably had the highest density of used hypodermic needles yet. Disgusting. It was also … Continue reading

HYSU Tunnel

HYSU Tunnel + Neighbor Tunnel

The word on the street is the HYSU crew (Have You Seen Us?) claimed a creek tunnel to themselves as their personal showcase for HYSU graff. They’ll even paint over anyone else who dares bomb the tunnel – Girafa learned … Continue reading

Houses on the Hill

Houses on the Hill

These aren’t really “houses,” but for lack of a better term these two houses were sitting on top of a small hill. After a short ascent we flicked some Oracles and others.

Ring of Walls

Ring of Walls

This spot consisted of a giant circle of trapezoid walls, some of which had doors. The circle was maybe 1 or 2 miles in diameter. We walked the circle flicking the graff as it came, including a few Oracles, Doner, … Continue reading

Oracle Figurine

Oracle Figurine

Recently I got a 3D printer, and one of my first test prints was an Oracle Head:   If you’re unfamiliar with Oracle, he is a prolific graffiti writer from the Bay Area. He draws variations of his iconic character: … Continue reading

The Last Yard on the Tracks?

Last Yard on the Tracks?

I have ridden the train by this yard many times in the past. It’s always looked pretty decent, and after shooting it at less than 50MPH, I can say that it was decent. While exploring this area my buddy and … Continue reading

Covered Bunkers - Uncovered

Covered Bunkers – Uncovered!

A while back I posted about some mystery covered bunkers, that had been covered with a heavy thick netting by the city for some reason. Well, word on the street had it that the netting was removed. We had to … Continue reading

Funston Checks In

Funston Checks In

This beach spot is popular with locals, but there’s not too much graff to see. Still worth a peep.

At the Beach

At the Beach

We had some time to kill, so we went for a lovely stroll on the beach.

Lock Company

Lock Company

Word has it that this used to be a famous lock company. Now the building is home to art and the occasional squatter. The building is absolutely beautiful inside, I wish I could buy it.

Beach Tube

Beach Tube

This tubular tunnel exists straight out to a beach. Oracle was there to lead the way.

Mountaintop Fun

Mountaintop Fun

Believe it or not, these buildings involved hiking to the top of a mountain. I’m surprised at the quality selection up here. Great art and great views!

Tripple 'Rafa

Tripple ‘Rafa

For lack of a better name, I clearly titled this one after the piece that sticks out to me most. A rare, classic, Girafa. But that’s not all that’s there, you’ll also find a couple Musks, a couple Oracles, a … Continue reading

Interrogation Hotel pt 2

Interrogation Hotel pt. 2

While we were in the area, we stopped by for a quick revisit of the Interrogation Hotel. Not too much had changed, but there was a nice crispy new Oracle there, as well as a Galaxe among others.

Girafa Bone Tracks

Girafa Bone Tracks

We discovered this stretch of tracks as we were following a lead to a classic Girafa Neck-bone piece.

Bunkers in the Hills

Bunkers in the Hills

This was an exciting day, hitting up nearly every WW2 era bunker in a cluster up in the San Francisco Bay’s hills. Some of them have been buffed, and some of them remained home to some of our favorite graffiti … Continue reading

Dust Tanks

Dust Tanks

These rusting, graffiti coated tanks are now sitting empty on a hill side. Well, not completely empty – they do have a lot of dusty, rusty air inside. Though we snapped some shots of the inside from the exterior piping, … Continue reading

Spooked Bridge

Spooked Bridge

We spooked a couple of graffiti writers as we approached this destination. Sorry guys. They must have been keeping an eye on us from a distance, because after we left we saw them return to their craft.

Industrial Waterfront

Industrial Waterfront

This forgotten industrial area shores up against a beautiful waterfront view. Even the graffiti want’s to swimming!
