San Francisco


San Francisco, California  
Nikon FE 35mm SLR/ Olympus Penn EE 2/ Photobooth SF's 4x5 camera
Kodak Portra ISO 400/ tintype

Back in July my family and I went to San Francisco for three days before enjoying our vacation in Hawaii. My excitement for San Francisco was at it's highest because it was my first time there and all I wanted to do is go to Photobooth and get my tintype portrait taken. As soon as we arrived to SF my family and I quickly hopped in a cab and we went straight there. I was like a little kid at a candy store, the 4x5 studio, darkroom, Polaroid cameras I was in heaven. The empolyees there were so lovely, helping me explain what a tintype is to my family. My father was asking lots of questions (which made me so happy) that he was so interested. After eating great food, drinking lovely wine and see the sights of San Francisco I would happily go back. My father also scored us amazing late minute tickets for the San Francisco Giants vs. New York Mets, we thought it was appropriate we attend, and man what an awesome game! They even had veggie dogs there, so damn good.
