Some time way back when, we here at 7x7 started a hashtag: #7x7bayarea. And we've followed along—it's a way for us to stay in the loop on Bay Area happenings, see what you're all up to and, sometimes, to stoke our own #fomo. But dang if you all haven't taken the hashtag and run with it!
Seriously, don't think we haven't noticed a proliferation of posts using our signature tag—and we've also noticed that, perhaps thanks to the ever-more-incredible iPhone camera—your pics just get better and better. So, we thought it was high time we share them.
Each local Instagrammer has their own point of view on life in the #7x7bayarea. For some, it's all about the food; for others, the views. For all, it seems, Bay Area life is a state of mind—and one that the IG-obsessed are forever in search of capturing on film.
Each week, we'll select seven hashtagged images that best captured the mood. For a chance at a spotlight in our next feature, tag your best IGs #7x7bayarea. Snap on!
