A "No Parking Anytime" sign was painted on a roll-up door. The roll-up door itself was painted in horizontal shades of purple. A human door to the left and notched into the roll-up door, was turned into an artistic mural.

The words, "No Parking" were written in large orange letters against a deep blue field on a roll-up garage door on Rosa Parks Lane, in downtown San Francisco. A palm tree cast a large shadow over the roll-up door. A piece of paper littered the sidewalk at the base of the roll-up door.

A small sign was attached to a fence post at the base of stairs on Sanchez Street near 18th Street in San Francisco. The sign read:

Red Zone
Don't
Even
THINK
Of
Parking
Here.

A paper "No Parking Tow Away Zone" sign was pasted to a wall next to a roll-up garage door. Below the sign was an odd mechanical contraption that might have been a mail slot.
