I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Day 82 (June 1) - More Bottles

You would think I was an alcoholic, but actually I often have a really hard time finishing even one beer.

I am addicted to this narrow depth of field thing. What's the equivalent of Methadone to wean me off of this?? Could I go cold turkey, back to f/8 or f/11? Even f/5.6 seems like a dismal prospect now.

Okay, one more for the road.

I swear, I can quit any time I want.


  1. That is some fantastic bokeh you have going there. The reflection of the grass (i'm assuming) on the bottle is really cool.

    Is the paint speckles on the left on white paint? Another assumption because it looks almost like you added it. Regardless...another great shot.

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Rob. Yeah, those are reflections of the grass. I didn't see them at the time of shooting, but was happy to find them when I uploaded the image.

    I'm looking at the second image. I shot it in raw and processed it in Lightroom, just exposure, color correction and sharpening, so I'm not really sure how those yellow paint speckles happened, perhaps some artifact of increasing the exposure a bit?

    Anyway, thanks again.


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
