Santa Cruz in July

With the end of summer fast approaching, I've been trying to take the time to travel and get the most out of these last few weeks. As some of you may know, I'll soon be hightailing off to the magical lands of Italy for four months to study, and will be on temporary leave from California's beauty. So, in order to soak in the majesty that is my homeland, I decided to take a quick lil trip up to the Bay Area to see some friends of mine. 

I'm so happy to have shot with my lovely friend, Arielle, who knows the photo ins and outs of Santa Cruz like no other. She and I had a fabulous time exploring cliffs, beaches, greenhouses, and even her roof during my stay. I was also finally able to kick it with the wonderful Luke (@victorofvalencia) - something I've been planning on doing all summer. Even though I have to soon say goodbye to this lovely land for a bit of time, I'm thankful to have made art to commemorate its beauty.
