So last night I had the amazing opportunity to see Blind Pilot in concert, yet again. Since they're one of my absolute favorite bands, I keep falling in love with them over and over again each time I see them live. We were literally right in front of the stage, and managed to pick up their set lists! It was an amazing experience, and I would be selling the night short if I forgot to mention their openers, The Holiday Friends (whose album I purchased during the show because I loved them so much) and Laura Gibson. It was just an awesome experience.. Buy all of their music! You won't be let down!

Over the weekend, it was my little sister's 11th birthday. To celebrate, she chose to go to In n Out for lunch (which was a semi-problem for me because I haven't eaten red meat in over 2 years... but I ended up getting a burger in honor of her special day). Of course, being the photographer I am, I pulled out my camera to shoot a photo of Maggie digging into her greasy lunch. However, when I turned on my camera, all I saw was a crack shooting across the screen. My heart totally and absolutely sank :( The next day, my mom and I went to the local camera store to see how much a repair would cost. The cost didn't end up being the problem, but instead it was the time it would take to fix the camera. There was no possible way it would be done in time for my trip with the Fourth of July just around the corner, so I ended up upgrading my camera to a D5100 that they had on sale at Costco as an early birthday present (I'll be 17 on August 17th!). Naturally, I wanted to take photos right away. I was in luck because the next day (today) Andon and I took a trip to San Francisco to visit the well-renowned Haight Street (which has excellent thrift stores by the way). Here are a few of the photos I snapped over the past two days!
|50 mm cameras shoot awfully close selfies... eek|
|The birthday girl|
|Amoeba Music - The most vinyl discs and CDs that I have ever seen in one place|
|Typical Haight - graffiti and a smoke shop|
|One of many stellar thrift stores|
|The view ain't so bad... although we were on a 45-degree incline when I shot this|
|I don't know why, but I loved the typography in the parking garage|

I tagged along with my dad for one of his business trips to Chicago this past week so that I could see University of Chicago, and I must say, I fell in love with the city. The people, the energy, the food, the lakeside, the river running through the center, the parks, the culture, the everything! I just am infatuated with it all. Here are a few of the photos I took while there!
|The view of the pier on Lake Michigan from our hotel window. Not a bad view!|
|Having a beachin' time|
|They also intertwined old vs modern style buildings... loved it.|
|Steamboat tours along the river that runs through the city|
|I'm a geometry/architecture freak when it comes to photography, so maybe that's why Chicago struck me so profoundly.|
|A very, very similar design to our family crest.|
|Building mural swag|
|Me n the city|
|Orchestra in Millennium Park|
