We've decided to start a bit of a photo diary project here on 7x7. Every Tuesday,  local photographer Joseph Schell will post a series of photos documenting a facet of San Francisco life. We're calling it "Scenes of the City." For his first project, he walked Van Ness (a street which traverses San Francisco) end to end and documented how things change along the way. Enjoy.
