Sailfest is one of my favorite summer events, there’s great music, awesome food, and mind blowing fireworks in evening. This year I got to cover it, and what an amazing experience it was. Growing up I used to go with my friends for a couple of hours, but looking at it through my camera for the entire day changed my whole perspective of of the event. I got to talk with people I never would have otherwise met, and I learned so much because of it. Living right near by is a luxury, so I grabbed by camera and took a shuttle down to the festival on a melting hot afternoon. I found myself in an ocean of people between tents of small businesses displaying their handmade clothing, jewelry, and food. Many cultures came together, and I met some very interesting people with great stories of their lives.
