Performing a walkthrough of downtown San Francisco and you never fail to see things that capture the imagination. I was walking towards Powell street against traffic and an elderly man caught my eye across the street. Peacefully sitting and minding his own business waiting for the bus. Reactively, I was slightly interested - but not to budge to chase a photo. As i peered and the full frontal view came evident, I realized that the ad added a layer into the man sitting at the bus kiosk. The juxtaposition was too much to ignore. I cross the street dodging traffic and composed in the middle in between lanes.

The first camera that Rey Cayetano bought was a 21st birthday gift for a friend who was hit by a car and died before he could deliver it to her. Six years later that tribute comes to life in “Side Walks,” a group show opening with a free event next Thursday at the San Francisco Museum at the Mint. The show, in the old weigh room of the Mint, is adjacent to “Neighbors,” a solo exhibition of enormous formal portraits by Troy Holden. If I could come from a tragedy and produce art, I felt that people should have access to that. Sam Whiting is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
Man, lucky and blessed to be part of a dope photography show at the Old Mint with colleagues that inspire me!
