California - April 18 - 21, 2015

Working trip to Northern California to take pictures of PV installations for a friend's website. Travelled and saw a lot in 4 days. Lifestyle there is so different than Hawaii. I thought the best way to show the pictures was to break it up by location. Unfortunately intense heat and sun made it hard to walk around and take more pictures.
