On Oct. 24, San Francisco faced its first full rainy day of the fall season. Although gray lined the clouds and skyline, the city itself still had bursts of color.
I chose to capture the bright colors of San Francisco because I feel as though there can sometimes be a perception that cities are monotone blocks of buildings that all blend together, with only their size to differentiate them. That is far from the case. Cities, especially San Francisco, are bursting with color. Whether that’s clothing, street art, light or simply the lines on the sidewalk, there is always color.
This project focuses on readjusting our perceptions of cities and encouraging people to focus on the vibrant colors cities provide.
