The hippie-central of San Francisco. The matrix of yet another Bohemian movement that San Francisco has given birth to, this area nurtured idealistic hippies in the late 1960s. There are still some tripping freaks here. After moving around the streets, savor a well-earned cappuccino and snack the People’s Cafe.

The man behind the lens...

Ralph Lauren Llanos Custodio
nurse / photographer / traveler


22 years young hobbyist graduated from the Institute of Nursing in Far Eastern University, Philippines.

His creative imagery has concentrated on landscape and travel photography - exploring different cultures, establishing bond with mother nature where he truly finds peace.

RL is now based in San Francisco, California, USA and on his never-ending quest for the perfect shot. He travels the globe, driven by a dynamic determination to capture the beauty that he sees and his great respect for nature and culture.

If you happen to get out to some of those far off places—you might just witness RL framing his one shot.



*My gallery used to be at www.empitsu.multiply.com but I guess I'll be uploading my recent shots here in Tumblr. Thank you for viewing.
