Viva Northern California

It is a blessing to travel for work, but there is little to no time for exploration. Luckily, work led me to a few seconds of beauty in Northern California's Berkeley, Oakland and Moraga. From rose garden to sunset skies, Nature's fresh air was calling me every brisk morning.

And after a week in California, I had one Saturday to spare and go wherever I wanted to go...San Francisco. Check out what were in my visions down below:

My day trip to San Francisco allowed me to snap a lot more than the rest of the week. It was a serious amount of exploration via car. Luckily, I knew a local who gave me a VIP experience. She knew the ins and outs of San Francisco and when the bumper to bumper traffic appeared along the route towards the Golden Gate Bridge, she switched gears and headed towards Baker Beach where nothing but sand and bridge filled my camera lens.

This foggy city brought little sunshine that day, but it did not damper my mood. Sometimes you need to live through the beauty found in simplicity. Flowers always bring me joy and I had a bouquet with me that day.
