Street Gardens: San Francisco

Walking is the best way to get to know a new place. It's environmentally friendly, healthy, but best of all, its slow.  Walking allows you time to soak in so much more of the new place you're in; from the faces, to the buildings, to the nature.  In a big city like San Francisco, I love finding nature among all the concrete.  There's so many hidden city gardens and bright walls juxtaposed with even brighter flowers, that you would miss in any other kind of transit.

San Francisco Souvenirs

Glass wear is the perfect combination of aesthetics  and utility.  While the end function is to serve nutrients, it can also be an outlet of visual creativity.  Collecting glass wear has become my new obsession.  These latest additions were found in San Francisco at various thrift and vintage shops.  The metallic gold, hand blown technique, and white sails all remind me of the art, sights and feels of one of my favorite cities in the world.
