One of my favorite parts of traveling is being able to take photos of new and exciting scenery. Whenever I visit a city, I can get lost for hours snapping pictures by myself. In fact, I'd often rather wander around aimlessly than have a set plan of touristy sites to see. My ideal travel day is one of normalcy. Experiencing a new city as much like a local as possible. (It's not always easy, but helps when you've got friends who actually live there.)
So, after I got home from San Francisco, I realized that most of the photos on my DSLR weren't exactly...pretty. Instead, they were a collection of random snapshots that captured (along with a few Instagrams) my brief excursions on a normal, somewhat gloomy week in the city.
But don't worry....I still managed to squeeze in a few tourist photos :) Here's one for good measure.
