These pictures are from the Taco Bell bathroom on Geary Street at 6th Avenue, upstairs.
I found this bathroom rather boring except for 2 items... it was dirtier than I'd have expected in that layer-of-grit sort of way. I'd be afraid of any urban fast-food establishment restrooms, but I expected this one to be a little cleaner. It was only marginally cleaner than the Fruitvale Bart Station restroom.
Second, I loved the color of these tiles. I've used these colors in paintings lately. The blue and red contrasting tiles, in a simple double-tile stripe circling the room at about 6ft. The juxtaposition of the squalor and these bright, happy, graffiti-resistant tiles. Somehow it was worth recording.
