It started when Noah McDonough, a 20-year Redwood City resident, went on walks for exercise and began taking photos with his iPhone 8 Plus.
The impressive images depict a beautiful city — and one made quiet amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
A resident in the Eagle Hill/Mount Carmel area, McDonough is not a photographer by trade. Rather, he works in the 3D engineering design software and 3D printing industry.
But his photos have been getting rave reviews.
His brother convinced him to create a smugmug account to house his photos. He started posting one a day to different Redwood City-related social media accounts and got a good reception, which he found “humbling and inspiring.”
Despite a difficult time, McDonough said he focused his lens on Redwood City’s beauty.
“My wife and I love this city for more reasons than we can list,” he said.

In addition, he’s put together several videos using drone footage, including this one:
