A Day in the Bay
The week after Christmas, my family decided to take a day trip to the Bay Area and see some of the familiar sights of the city. Of course I couldn't miss an opportunity to snap some photos along the way, so I brought my camera with me and we embarked on the road.
We started off the day by driving into San Francisco, my favorite city in the world.

After driving around for a while trying to find a parking space (the post-Christmas rush was still on in the city), we walked around Union Square with the family, popping in and out of random stores as we went.
City life is one of my favorite things to photograph.

The security guard wouldn't let me take my camera into Forever 21, so I snapped this photo of the lavish, intricately detailed ceiling of the store with my phone.

My little brother took this photo of me overlooking Union Square on his phone.
Then, it was time to leave San Francisco and head off to Palo Alto for the evening. The rolling hills of that drive is some of my favorite scenery.
We drove to Stanford University and got there right as the sun was beginning to set.

Stanford's campus is honestly one of my favorites, so I had some fun wandering around and shooting the beautiful facades of the buildings.

Once the sun had set, my family and I headed back to the car and drove all the way back home. It was a gorgeous day and I'm so glad we decided to spend the day at my birthplace and hometown. The Bay Area will always be the place I call home.
