Today's post was inspired by Glenn (viewfinder). On Friday, he posted a terrific image of San Francisco's Chinatown. The image showed a group of apartments with finely detailed, brightly painted wrought-iron railings shimmering in sunlight.

Glenn's posting reminded me of a photo I took of a nearby housing project several years back. This building is the antithesis of Glenn's apartments.
In Chinatown - near the Broadway Tunnel - they had just painted the place when I came by on Mother's Day Sunday morning in 2005. I am reminded of that giant American flag that appeared behind actor George C. Scott during the opening speech in the movie Patton.
In any case, Glenn - this one's for you.
