​This makeshift shrine was spotted at the foot of Bernal Hill on Bernal Heights Boulevard and quite frankly, it scares the bejeesus out of us.

The collected ephemera is like a laundry list of Things That Are Creepy When Experienced Out of Context: religious symbolism, baby accessories, and naked dolls. In addition to resembling the Nursery in Hell, the shrine-maker has collected the cast-off clothes of several people, netting two scarves and one pair of shades. (And that's not counting two pacifier-less babies.) What has become of the people who owned these items?

We can draw only one conclusion from this remarkable display: Bernal Heights is filled with Satanists.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year.

Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
