SF City Hall Christmas Lights Gone Berserk

San Francisco's City Hall has been lit up green and red for Christmas this year.

At certain points, it looks like odd Chinoiserie as if designed for a delirious production of Puccini's "Turandot."

From other angles... looks a bit like Satan's Lair.

For the first time ever, the insanely expensive, high-tech, solar-roofed, bizarrely lit new Muni bus shelter on the corner of Van Ness and Grove actually looked like it belonged in the neighborhood.

From this time onwards, it shall be known as the Christmas Shelter.

Whenever I see bold colors like that, for the sake of color, I say to myself "Jerry Garcia colors" -- did you know that Jerry was a painter too? Primary and basic colors, all the way...

Great photos! I fully expect to see a spaceship land on top of City Hall and if not a spaceship, at least a dragon.
