Adventure // Golden Gate Park
A couple weeks ago, Dai and I ventured out to Golden Gate Park with a couple of friends. We had gotten together with them to shoot some portraits and to show them around the city a bit. As I believe I have mentioned, the weather hasn't been the greatest lately (except for today, Hallelujah!), so I figured that the backdrop of luscious greenery & a gloomy day would be perfect for some portraits!
Golden Gate Park is a really expansive and sprawling park comprised of smaller pockets of parks and trails with roads that allow you to drive through it. Sometimes it can be confusing because there are just so many different parts to it! There are bison housed there that you can take a look at, baseball fields, paved paths to walk along, a large duck pond, a small "lake," playgrounds, and an area with some museums. You could really spend a whole day in this park and even I have yet to see it all.
One things that is kind of nice about this place is that you are in San Francisco, but feel so secluded and like you could really be in an entirely different place altogether. You could be in another state even and not even notice! I really like that you can find such a quiet and serene place in a big, bustling city! It is definitely something that should be appreciated.
Our friends were nice enough to snap a few photos of us with my camera, which we really don't have nearly enough of! Most photos of us are iPhone photos, which aren't the greatest quality for printing, so I'm happy to have a high quality photo of us that I can print out and frame :)
This dog was hilarious. He suddenly appeared out of the bushes and just had to rest right in the middle of the walking path while he waited for his humans. He was just too tired! He was probably the biggest Corgi I had ever seen, too haha.
This guy. Always nice enough to carry my bag for me so I can photograph things! Looks pretty good doing it too ;) What a good sport!
I love all of the different types and colors of greenery that grows here. It is like a little forest hideaway! One could surely get very lost here and I'd definitely like to spend a day doing the same.
This photo pretty much perfectly sums us and our relationship up. We are basically goofballs and we love it. Really though, I hope some of you have had the joy of hanging out with us haha.
Aside from visiting the museums, I think I have taken this park for granted all these years! This summer, I'd love to take advantage of living a short drive away and explore it more. It would be fun to pack a lunch, grab my pup, and have a picnic here! It would be a great new place to shoot outfit photos, and would even be a nice place to take a long morning walk with Marly at! I think it will be one of my goals to do all of those things this summer :)
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of our little afternoon adventure and getting to see a new part of the city here on the blog!
Do you enjoy visiting parks? Do you have a similar place you like to visit?
Have an awesome weekend! Woohoo! Tonight we are having a bonfire with friends, which I am pretty pumped about :)
