Santana Row in San Jose offers a beautiful urban escape from repetitive school days. Walking down the row there are a variety of places to eat, from steakhouses to a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlor. Taking photos on a sunny day allowed me to capture all the vibrant colors and unique architecture. I mostly enjoyed taking photos of the people playing chess, eating ice cream and playing with their children on the lawn. Santana Row is always a fun getaway, and it is also one of those places where I learn to see everyday beauty in a new perspective.
