San Francisco China Town / by Sarah Robertson

I never tire of visiting San Francisco's China Town. Each time I visit I'm overwhelmed by the mixture of tourists and locals, the abundance of color, and the history. I can't help but feel like I'm stepping into another culture, another world. On one block you see a park full of locals with children playing on the playground and the sidewalk lined with elderly Chinese men an women playing dominoes. On another you see endless tourist shops filled with trinkets and then there are all the restaurants. With so much to photograph it's always a challenge and a thrill to simplify and capture San Francisco's Chinatown. [Shot on Portra 400 taken with a Mamiya 645]
