I haven't seen my nieces in over 20 years and recently they visited San Francisco for a small vacation. I had a chance to catch up with them for a day and one of the things they wanted to experience is the sunrise in San Francisco. I contacted a few of my friends who had better intell in these types of location and I was suggested to visit Mt. Davidson. The location delivered and went beyond our expectation. It was better than going to Golden Gate bridge and be surrounded by other tourist. The location serves a great purpose for meditation, talks and of course images of the sunrise.
I had a chance to visit NYC this year with my friend and sister from another mother, Vivian Sachs. We went and visited places I haven't had a chance to check out from the last time I visited NYC a few years back. We bump into old friends and met new ones in a bar that I can only describe as a scene from the show Cheers. Except in this scene, it involved a lot of empanadas delivered by a guy riding a bicycle. Definitely a memorable trip and hope to see NYC more often this time around.
I thought I share some of the imagery I found while walking around NYC and the mood that it brought me throughout the trip. Hope you enjoy them!
Red Card USA collaborated with local San Francisco clothing brand & store, Purist Boutique, to introduce multiple artist that captivated the community in their own expressive art form. Each artist were given a pair of denim and utilized it to express a visual interpretation of what "PURIST" means to them. PURIST SF turned their boutique into a gallery of mix media and an atmosphere that catered art lovers and fashion lovers alike. Their walls were filled with vast majority of colorful embellishment pack in denim materials and photographic stories that told the audience that Bay Area were filled with skillful creatives.
