Santa Cruz through Instagram / by Let It Be Raw

I don't use my phone's camera often, but when I do, it becomes a short term obsession. It's also a good stand in when I want instant gratification while I'm waiting to finish a roll or to get film developed. Anyways, this is what's been happening in Santa Cruz:

This is the Light House on West Cliff. I walk to it a few times a week to watch the surfers.

Looking down into my fish tank. I've remade two vases into fish tanks - one for guppies and one for my Batman, my betta fish. 

Enjoying Labor Day weekend! I drank beer on the porch with friends and played madlibs. 
It's the simple things. 

This is my "backyard"

Architecture in Santa Cruz often does not make sense. 
I'm sure there was a stairway to this at some point, but now it's a 30 foot drop.

Another of my favorite places to walk is the marsh. 
It's currently under construction, which doesn't make sense to me.

I've noticed the sunsets are happening a little bit earlier each day.
I am in denial that the days are getting shorter.
