We live about 25 miles outside the city. Without traffic, it’s a really quick trip.
I grew up in Southern California, about 5 minutes from Redondo Beach, so San Francisco still holds a special draw for me. It’s a world away from that laid-back beach town.
I feel inspired every time I walk the city streets, it’s like a foreign country to me.
Sometimes I wish we lived in the city. Especially on the weeks where I’m up there 2 or 3 times… photographing engagement sessions, meeting with clients, having dinner with friends…
Other times, I enjoy having an excuse to take the scenic route.
As nice as it would be to be a local, being a tourist gives me a different set of eyes. And I like what I see.
