sunday in the city.

this weekend i went for a long, leisurely walk, exploring my new neighborhood and up over the hills to the mission. it’s such a colorful and picturesque stroll, i of course could not help but snap lots of pics. here’s a glimpse at the walk from noe valley to valencia street in san francisco’s wonderful mission district. i hope you had a colorful, inspiring weekend, too!

    These shots are increadible! What do you shoot with? I currently use a Canon Rebel XTi but I’m looking to upgrade (plus some new lenses wouldn’t hurt!) Also I love your blog! San Francisco is my favorite place in the world haha, and I think you really stay true to it.

    The photos are fabulous. I love the vintage tables and chairs and that one of the mailboxes. San Francisco is so great when the sky is that blue! I had friends out a couple weekends ago and we stayed in Cole Valley and the weather was (unexpectedly) gorgeous the entire weekend!

    From the looks of these photo’s there will be many discoveries +
    nuances to capture with every walk.

    I love Sunday in the City posts. Today even more than usual because I am looking forward to spending the day there tomorrow. I think the weather is going to be perfect for a day at Golden Gate park.

    the last picture cracks me UP!

  14. Aura says:

    Great photos, everything is so colorful! I love to see the regional differences in the places that we all live. We don’t have many colorful shops, homes, or signs. I guess because I live in the middle of Oklahoma :) But we have lots of beautiful lakes, flowers, creatures and sunsets to photograph.

  15. Simone says:

    Your photos always make me smile! I love all of the colours. It’s great to see other places with a fresh perspective.

  16. victoria says:

    i’m currently using a Nikon D80, and these were shot with a 50mm lens.

    thanks again!! :)
