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 160 (August 18) - Candles

We had a massive thunderstorm at the end of the school day today. Lights flickered, the heavens opened and it dumped.

When we got home there was no power. As soon as it started to get dark outside I went and got our store of candles, lit some, took some pictures, and then the power came back on. Which was faster than I was going to give Thailand credit for, to be honest.


  1. Cool photo... I like how the flames are reflected on the table.

  2. Lovely reflections, and it's amazing, we had a power failure in Canada on the same day, we ended up using these exact same types of tea lights. Funny how small this great big world really is.

  3. Thanks Alicia and Robyn . . . I almost forget sometimes that I'm halfway around the world from where I used to be. If you travel enough, nowhere feels very different any more.

  4. Cats, Kids and Candles! Amazing perception! I have a similar image of candles out here. Let me know if you like it http://giovannidcunha.wordpress.com/2009/03/20/birthdays-are-meant-to-be-celebrated/


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