'Rainbow Lips' Pedestrian Crosswalk Brightens SF's Hayes Valley

(Click to enlarge.)

These photos and the video were shot this morning at the corner or Octavia Boulevard and Linden Street. Bright rainbow lips highlighting the pedestrian crosswalk not only caught my queer eye, but I think are a great safety enhancement for pedestrians. When car drivers see the lips, they're likely to slow down and look at them.

None of the dozen folks walking by, including one who said he lived on Linden Street, could answer my question about when the rainbow lips were painted on the street. Haven't a clue who created this crime, er, public safety artwork on our street. They didn't sign their name.

It would be terrific to see similar artistic expression in the crosswalks near the Russian consulate in Pacific Heights or the Russian Orthodox Church in the Castro. Don't you agree?
