Each week I’ll be showcasing one of my favorite photographs from my travels. Some are new, some are old. Some were taken on my phone (by necessity). Some are from Philadelphia, some from much farther than that… This week’s photograph was taken in San Francisco in 2018.
Believe it or not, this was my very first time seeing the Pacific Ocean!
As I mentioned in my last post about Füssen, I spent my first night in Germany wandering around town and taking photographs. I was hoping for some nice light, but by the time I got out and about it was practically dusk. Still, one of my main goals of traveling to Germany was to practice my photography, so I headed out anyway. And I have to say, even without that precious Golden Hour light, Füssen there were still some beautiful scenes to be had.
