Walk with me as I stroll down memory lane to my latest trip to San Francisco.
As everyone in the world knows, San Francisco is a hideous place. I hardly took any photos.
My first morning there we hustled to Starbucks, hopped in a car, and continued to hustle our buns in order to catch our ferry to brunch.
Doesn’t everyone ferry to brunch?
Anyway. My friend Erin has lived in SF for a few years and my OTHER friend Ryan just recently joined her there. They live right down the hall from each other. LITERALLY! My FOMO (fear of missing out) had never been higher. I am happy to report that we didn’t skip a beat in becoming conjoined triplets for the weekend.
I swear we were triplets. I just don’t have proof. SOMEBODY had to take the exquisite photos. You may have noticed the subtle fact that the girls are in workout clothes. Well, this is because the plan for the day was an alcohol free brunch to be followed by a 3+ hour hike.
About 3 mimosas in we bailed on that and decided to call our chauffeur (E’s boyfriend Stanley) and have him charter us to Napa.
Way. Better. Idea.
Why was this a way better idea you ask?
Aside from the complete and total obvious (the wine) …it’s because of the light.
There is nothing…NOTHING…like California light.
Look at the next photo. I cannot even handle how inferior the light (photography wise) in Colorado is compared to this. It’s so ethereal and so gorgeous.
Alas, I had priorities consisting of laughing, bonding, and wine drinking. The light would have to wait.
The three of us are natural ‘seekers of the sun’ if you will. So we sought the sun right into an incredibly thick and green patch of grass. We didn’t leave until the sun did. I love these photos so much and have to thank Stanley for capturing them.
This day was perfect.
The rest of the weekend was spent recovering (too much wine) replacing E’s broken iPhone (too much wine) and of course, eating all the food (with more wine). My last night there, we enjoyed a chilly sunset on the water and made plans for our next adventure. See ya next time SF.
Here are some fun iPhone shots as well.
Pretty wall at the SF airport!
that sun setting road pic with phone in side mirror is damn cool
simply stunning photos, ali.
Tears…..lovely photos….good friends….great trip….it makes me miss my friends.
I want you to remain ‘Travel Photographer’. I am applying for the job of Assistant to the Travel Photographer. I’ll send you my resume. When can I pack my bags?
