I found these pics at home from 1998 and couldn't help but put 'em up.

1998 SF MUNI ghostyard next to Power Station A / Mirant. Not sure if many remember but they used to stash the old MUNI train cars here and it was super easy to hang out, no security, no problems. Right next to "Tire Beach" where we used to have outdoor raves all night long.




That's me shooting the old train cars and the graffiti in 1998 at 20 years old or so.


Haha, not so skinny anymore, but still shooting abandoned train cars.

Love the old graffiti and buses. Reminds me of my high school days.

Unfortunately no. If I was exploring with a camera, I was taking pics of graf but not of the buildings themselves. The rest of the time I went with no camera just to hang out. I've got TONS of film of graf in SF and everywhere else I traveled but it's boring to me now...

If you have any good street art that would be sweet if you posted them!

Those steetcars and buses look sick! I love how the graffiti adds so much color to the fairly grey setting.

On this date in 1928, the St. Francis dam in San Francisquito Canyon (40 miles northwest of LA) catastrophically failed.

At 11:57:30 p.m., 12.4 billion gallons of water destroyed the dam, causing a devastating force of water and massive chunks of concrete to rush forth at incredible speed and volume.

600 people died, with the water passing through several cities, crossing over the i-5, and finally reaching the ocean 54 miles away.

Bodies were found late into the 20th century, stuck in-between boulders and washed out to sea as far as the Mexico border.

I recently visited some of the St. Francis dam ruins.

I love this one! captures the essence of UE. The ability to escape from the mundane - all those people in the city, rushing home or going to work, yet solitude and adventure can still be found.

Nice! Always wondered if there was still anything up there after the Tombstone was demolished. The St. Francis Dam Disaster was the most fatal single incident in California history after the Great San Francisco Earthquake. For cinephiles, it was one of the influences for Roman Polanski's Chinatown.
