Haight and Ashbury / by Sarah Robertson

Haight and Ashbury is the place where it all began, the birthplace of the hippies. Through the years the area has transformed and grown but there are plenty of vibes left of the 60’s. I spent my last morning in San Francisco at Haight and Ashbury. It was a sunny morning and I got to the area bright and early. It was quiet and most of the shops were still closed. But honestly, it was kind of nice to walk to main drag and just take it all in. The neighborhood is now home to some great little restaurants, a handful of second hand clothing shops, and a wondrous amount of great street art. Although the neighborhood isn’t the hippie home base it once was it still welcomes the free spirits and encourages the creative in all of us. [Shot on Ektar 100 taken with Holga]
