Chinatown in San Francisco

Chinatown in San Francisco

Chinatown in San Francisco is the largest Chinatown outside of Asia as well as the oldest one in North America. I had never been here before last summer and I can attest that it is the real deal, not some Disneyfied tourist attraction. I loved walking around there making photos. You could lost there just experiencing all the sights and smells of China.

I made this image with my Apple iPhone 5 and no special gear. It really is amazing how good cell phone cameras have gotten over the years.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
