Our 12-month orbit around the sun is nearly complete. And to commemorate the end of the year, we’re taking a look at our favorite photos of 2018.
There was a lot happening in the Mission this year: demonstrations, protests, art celebrations, and parties. Your Mission Local photo department has selected 16 of our favorite photos from this year, and set them up below.
Take a look!
