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.)

The Dance

A quick snap of some children dancing we saw in Sapa. The girl on the right is wearing a traditional Hmong jacket, which they make by hand from hemp they grow themselves, and dye with indigo they grow in their gardens. And then the sleeves are embroidered painstakingly by hand. Although 'progress' happens everywhere, the hill tribes in Sapa seem to keep to their old traditions, while incorporating new conveniences, like cell phones.


  1. A great traditional image, isn't it funny, they hand sew the uniforms, but still use technology!

  2. How wonderful, I hope they can continue to blend the new with the traditional. Another fine shot!


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