California, Part 3 : : Through My Lens

Jen and I are officially back from our California road trip and this morning I looked through the rest of my images and posted a few favorites. One of my favorite places...San Francisco! On our last day we explored China town, met an artist, sat on the wharf at sunset and reflected on the adventures we had.

One of my favorite parts of the day...the tea tasting!

Uncle Gee and his grand-daughter. Uncle Gee was a character and totally made the experience fun and unforgettable.
Tasty chinese yums... mooncakes anyone?

Vranas was an artist we met walking through the streets. I happened to stop this duo to ask if I could photograph them and it took us on a two-hour tour of San Francisco looking at the artwork they've contributed to the area. Totally amazing.

A mural Vranas painted in the mid 90's.


A few days before heading to San Francisco, Jen and I hiked up to the Hollywood sign on a perfect, sunny blue day.

So much fun! Almost looks like you two visited another country not just a different state. Love them, the bridge one is super cool.

I'm an "Amy Carroll", too, so I had to come check out your site. I love your pics, and I'm jealous of your trips! Thanks for sharing your gift on the net.
