Sometimes, a communal space could exist for a very mundane reason, but it can still serve as a place for meaningful human connection. Many buildings in old San Francisco neighborhoods do not have their own laundry, so laundromats are a natural gathering spot for people. In a culture where knowing their neighbor isn't everyone's default leaning, I wonder if there are a lot of spaces left where people who don't know their neighbors are forced to strike up a conversation.
#ThemeIn15: After Dark
This photo is one in a photoset called After Dark, a tiny snapshot of life after sunset in San Francisco. When people think about city life, they often think of daytime. Nightlife is limited to the bars and parties, but there's a lot going on outside of those things. I enjoy urban exploration at night, and hope that these images reflect my experience of the chilly and windy fall/winter nights of San Francisco, 2018.
