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.)

This is an old photo, taken almost exactly three years ago inside the old prison at Alcatraz. If I were to take the same picture today I would probably compose the shot a little differently, but I think this illustrates a good point: even point and shoot cameras can capture beautiful light. My camera at the time was a little Nikon E5200, and it was fully automatic. But it still took some pretty nice pictures.


  1. Hi Jessica,
    I just discovered your blog, and have to say GOOD JOB!

    It just goes to show, you don't need the fanciest gear to get some amazing images!

    You've got a great eye! Looking forward seeing more of your work!

  2. You are right, what beautiful lighting - also love the repeating patterns throughout this!

  3. Joan, thank you so much! Your comment really made me smile.

    And Chesney, yes the patterns are beautiful . . . these windows are on every wall of the prison. They don't let much light in, but what they do let in is stunning.


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