Sunny day in the Windy City.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetRecently went to visit my cousins in Chicago after not having seen them for 3 years! And I seemed to have brought the California sunshine with me because we got perfect weather the whole weekend I was there. Sunny and warm, not exactly normal fall weather for Chi-town. My first time visiting when I was 16 definitely did not do the city justice. Perhaps because I was  not able to free roam and drink cocktails at happy hour? Perhaps. I love this shot I captured of the Bean, which is still one of my favorite tourist spots I’ve ever been to. Go to Russia Tea Room if you have the time! I am still dreaming of that food. And Dylan’s Candy Bar if you have a hankering for a cotton candy martini!

Strolling Sacramento.

I would say at least 50% of my work is the result of my random meandering around the towns I visit. There’s something magical about stumbling across a beautiful sight and capturing it. Here, I found this beautiful Victorian home while taking a walk downtown and the result was great. (Hope the home owners don’t mind me loitering in their front yard hehe.) I like to think photography is a bit of metaphor for life, you never know what beautiful things life will bring to you.

Home is where the heart is.

My out of town friends know better than anyone that I am one proud Sacramento resident. I will tell anyone who will listen about the great restaurants and bars or its proximity to great daycation destinations like Tahoe and San Francisco. I won’t lie, it has not always been like this but with time and growing I have come to treasure this place as my second home. You will often see pictures of sights around town and I hope that if you have not already, you will consider visiting. #VisitSacramento
