The indefatigable, ineffable and generously amiable Frank Chu.

 

Through all the changes this city has been through he's remained one of San Francisco's beloved eccentrics, and seeing him still shuffling around with his nonsensical sign gives me hope that San Francscio will always be weird. Frank is our modern-day incarnation of Emperor Norton - he's welcome wherever he goes, and just watching him go you see all sorts of people stopping to ask after him and check that he's doing OK.

 

And yes, before you ask - Frank is the one that inspires my photo titles.

Today at lunch this crazy butt naked pirate was running around Market St. He didn't really seem to be a viral marketing thing or anything, he was just running around yelling at everyone and talking all pirate crazy like.

 

As luck would have it, while he was doing his thing at the corner of Market and 1st, who comes sauntering across the street? None other than his excellency Frank Chu himself. Frank agreed to pose for a photo with the pirate and the pirate kept yammering on in pirate talk about 12 Galaxies the whole time.

This Photo was taken by Dan Escobar. I was working with Dan today and we stumbled across this photo from a few years ago that he took when he was shooting a job in San Francisco. I didn't even recognize Frank or the sign from long ago, he's changed so much as well as his signs have improved as well. Dan is an amazing photographer, you can check out his commercial portfolio here: www.jkand.com/Dan.html

I think this shot is from around 2001

12 Galaxies, San Francisco, October 20, 2007
