When Jackelyn Chavez looks at this photo, taken on a cool day in La Jolla, it reminds her of her native San Francisco.
Why? Because “it’s cold and damp and littered with birds,” she said.
For her, this photo is the perfect representation of her two homes.
“I feel nostalgic every time I look at it,” she said. “I thought it was a perfect way to bookend my college experience.”
