With Black Friday & Cyber Monday just behind us we couldn't help but show what shopping looks like for both of us.

Mel in San Francisco is on the left, a photo taken with her iPhone 4 and Azuree in Chicago's photo is on the right taken with her Polaroid SX-70.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday with friends and family! Until next week...

Bonjour! Welcome to our little blog. This is a place where Melissa Santiago and Azuree Wiitala come to compare cities! Inspired by other wonderful joint effort blogs, like London vs Paris & Sixty Four Colors we aim to show you our friendship and our love for our city, respectively San Francisco and Chicago! This blog is also intended to help motivate the two of us to keep shooting..something we both love so much.

Mel lives in the Mission District of San Francisco with a panda, a pig & two tiny tigers. Follow her on the internets:
