Summer Snapshots

Aggie photographers document their vacation through photography

I took this photo while my friends and I were visiting Santa Barbara. They were actually watching a drone that one of my friends was (illegally) flying along the coast of the beach. (BRIAN LANDRY)

Over the summer I travelled to Florida and visited many places including St. Augustine, The Kennedy Space Center, Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando. This picture was taken right after a rainstorm in St. Augustine. (NICKI PADAR)

This summer, I was lucky enough to live close to Lake Merritt. I was able to go on a run around the lake and watch the sunset every week. On this day, I was able to capture my brother and his fiance enjoying the scenery together. (MONICA CHAN)

I started off this summer taking a trip to San Francisco with my family. We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and visited Vista Point at night to get a full view of the city. (ALEXA FONTANILLA)

A weekend getaway from summer school and my first time visiting Tahoe. This shot was taken at Emerald Bay, where my family and I enjoyed a nice hike overlooking the area. (NADIA DORIS)

Thousands of years ago, gladiators entered these arches in hopes of gaining fame and fortune. Now, tourists enter for a glimpse into the past and a quick stop at the souvenir shop. (Rome, Italy) (ANH-TRAM BUI)

I spent part of my summer studying abroad in France. I decided to stay an extra week after the program in order to fully enjoy my trip while capturing photos that I had been dying to take. This one in particular was taken the night before I flew back to California. Across from the Arc de Triomphe was a small “safe” space in the middle of the street for people to stand in in order to take photos with its entirety. I obviously had to take advantage of that; jumping into the middle of traffic was worth it for this photo. (BRIANA NGO)

There’s nothing like summer days in Southern California spent at the beach. Beautiful views and beautiful weather. Laguna Beach, CA (BECCA RIDGE)
