Psychogeography

As an artist, I walk in our urban environment to “read” social clues to understand trends. Here’s what Wikopedia says.

For scientific disciplines, see Cognitive geography and Environmental Psychology.

Psychogeography is an exploration of urban environments that emphasizes playfulness and "drifting". It has links to the Situationist International. Psychogeography was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals."[1] It has also been defined as "a total dissolution of boundaries between art and life". Another definition is "a whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities... just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the urban landscape."

Stairway Walks

Monday Morning Walks_ May 27, 2019

Memorial Day is a quiet day in San Francisco and I head out to the Ritual on Haight Street to hand deliver a letter to a close friend and I once again retrace on foot places I seen as a realtor. This walk takes off from my home in Noe Valley and crosses into The Haight via the Pemberton Steps for a quick sighting of the magical gardens and stairways leading into homes.

 These stairs have been on my walking tours of neighborhoods since I discovered book by Adah Bakalinsky, Stairway Walks Of San Francisco” published in 2007. Here’s a modern link to Weekend Sherpa for modern times.

Between Intermittent Sun and Darkening Clouds

I walked between intermittent sun and darkening clouds from Ritual on Valencia and I recognized my delight in being a realtor. The intimate knowledge I gain as I tour San Francisco neighborhoods. The pleasures of being a realtor and the opportunity to see not just the curb side view, but to know the spatial layout and structural opportunities inside various buildings.
