San Francisco From Above

Over Labor Day Weekend 2014, I got a chance to see San Francisco and the Bay Area from above, with my friend Ian as the pilot. Below are a collection of photos that I took during the trip. Enjoy!

The above photo was so fun to capture. It took me a minute to get the camera’s settings just right but it nicely encapsulated how cool the trip was.

All photos were taken with a Sony RX1, edited in Adobe Lightroom, and processed with VSCO Film Collection 05.
