Day Six: Forming bonds, captioning moments

I'm not used to waking up so early on Saturday — especially during the summer. However, I was somewhat excited knowing the next day I would be going to San Francisco.


Once I arrived in the morning, I started reading The Mercury News and specifically looked for photo captions. I wanted an example for when I write mine for the pictures I took the previous day. Soon lunch came about, and a few of us went to a boba place. On the way back, someone saw a frozen yogurt shop and we decided to get some. I didn’t order any as I was too full of popcorn chicken. However, I saw good photo opportunities and took a few of my friends. It was a fun little trip, and we went back to the university as soon as possible.


Around 3pm, Julie and I went to shoot pictures for her story on immigration. I had fun meeting the family and they seemed really nice; they were optimistic. Leaving, these two friendly dogs approached us — probably the highlight of the day. Hannah drove us all and Abel was along for the ride. As soon as I came back, I gave LiPo [Ching] the pictures for selection. I look forward to seeing the photographers’ pictures in the stories; I feel like we’ve learned a lot.
