One of the things I love most about San Francisco is the vibrancy and uniqueness of each neighborhood. They all have their own history, their own character and charm. Before I moved to the city, the Husband (who was just the Boyfriend at the time) lived in Russian Hill, just a short walk from Chinatown. I loved strolling down to Chinatown whenever I visited him, soaking up all the energy and life the neighborhood had to offer. I hadn’t been back in quite a while so when I had a free afternoon that just happened to coincide with Lunar New Year, I packed up my cameras and headed out. The one thing I didn’t pack? My light meter. Oops. Which explains why a few shots came out a bit underexposed. I don’t mind, though. It adds even more character to the frame, much like the neighborhood preserved within.
Can you spot the hidden selfie in that last one? (It’s not easy – I’m wearing a hat and sunglasses!)
