At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I just have to say once more on this blog, how much I love San francisco. While I missed visiting it on a recent California trip 2 months ago, I’d like to share a few snapshots from a lovely trip I took last year. I just love trips to the city!
San francisco is, after all, where I really decided I wanted to pursue a career as a creative. 5 years later, here I am, still a work in progress but I definitely feel like I am where I exactly have to be at the moment, by God’s grace. I owe this offbeat/breathtaking/romantic city full of dreamers (and startups) for helping and inspiring the 21 year old me to take brave steps towards the creative pursuits I’ve always dreamt of .
No matter how many times I visit, there’s always something new I end up discovering. On this trip, I stayed with my friend Daniela and her family at her new apartment on Judah, just a short walk from Ocean beach. Loved exploring and really spending time in Judah’s beautiful small shops, working on some projects in its freelancer-friendly coffices and taking walks to the beach. The General Store and Beachside Cafe were my favourites on Judah. I met with my URL turned IRL (in real life) friend Micaela and we decided to shoot a little video (always love collaborating on stuff with this girl! You can watch it HERE.) on the beach and along Alamo square. We hung out by the painted ladies and had some coffee at The Mill (gaaah such a gorgeous cafe!) Hope you enjoy this little photo journal that’s making me miss the city all the more.
I picked up Victoria Smith/ @sfgirlbythebay’s book , See San francisco on a recent LA trip and as I flipped through it, I recognised so many spots that I also love. (this blog is filled with posts from previous trips to the bay. You can check them out by typing in “San francisco” in the search bar on the right! )
Inspired, I ransacked my hard drive (which needs much sorting by the way) for these photos from last year . This is how I see San Francisco. Hope you enjoy my little city tour and that I do the city’s prettiness some justice.
