Driving up Judson Street near where I was staying, I saw something unusual on the edge of the campus of City College of San Francisco — a pair of leaping whales in a rubbled lot.


This is what they looked like from the road. So I got out of the car, and took some more photos.


The metaphors of these images are almost painfully obvious, but no less striking for it.

As usual, lots more at the Flickr set

Wow. That makes me think of "Moby Dick". All it needs is a miniature Ahab caught in the lines.
