Even the most beautiful cities in the world may start to feel boring after living there for a while. It’s difficult to notice the little charming details when we’re swamped with our daily routines and constantly rushing. Luckily, talented photographers like Sage Akaboshi are here to remind us of all that we’re missing by transforming simple things into beautiful images.

Sage shoots all around San Francisco to show the city’s atmosphere. His pictures all have a down-to-earth unpretentious quality to them, making them really enjoyable. The photographer told Bored Panda: "When I was young, I just happened to be passing by a Polaroid camera promotion in front of a store with my friends, and I bought a camera impulsively. Immediately, I took photos of my friends with the camera on the street. That was my start of photographing in the street. After that, I also started using a film camera and I was very excited when I got the photos developed in black and white. Now I just point the lens at everything I am interested in: people, color, architecture, cityscape, art, and more.”

    Nearly scrolled past the giant peace signs painted (chalked?) on the road. Nice.
