The owner of this ride drove all the way across ‘Muricah, with love, only to arrive en la Mision to go broken into:
Things are different here.
Famous San Francisco street photographer Justin Beck has bounced back from losing his camera on the mean Streets of San Francisco, looks like. He’s got another Nikon to work with so that’s nice.
Check it, a canary yellow streetcar.
Is this an album cover?

Poor pooch. Daijoobu, daijobu. Gambate!
Do you know how much bad art we pay for? I mean, there’s lots and lots of (government-funded and government-mandated) bad art around town, let me tell you.
OTOH, popular photographer Justin Ryan Beck does his good art, his street photography, for free for one and all – isn’t that nice?
Or least it was nice, until yesterday, when the digital camera he was using got stolen out of his hands in the Richmond District at four-something PM in the afternoon:
“I’m OK but was just robbed at the corner of Arguello and Balboa. Talked to cops. Time for a new camera I guess. :/”
Here’s his last photo. It appears he’ll be on a break for a while.
How can we get a DSLR, preferably a new Nikon along with a wide anglish lens or two, back into the hands of JRB, you know, where it rightfully belongs?

Don’t know what did this kind of damage.
Anyway, that’s the evidence, as found on Oak Street north of SoPA and South of NoPA, so it’s up to you to figure the M.O.
[Oh, an angle grinder – that also could explain the burning. See comments.]
[Oh, it could have been an oxy-acetylene torch as well. See comments.]
Or it could have been Arnold – he has the equipment, anyway.
So, when somebody steals your iPhone in the Mid Market, you’ll still be able to keep in touch with your peeps.

And then later, you can head up to 7th and Market and buy a “new” iPhone from the people who hang out there all day selling stolen iPhones.
NB: Mind the gang war. (Is Twitter really going to move in?)
