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 21 - In Bloom

I thought today was going to be an unlucky photography day. To start with, at lunch Evan and I popped the back tire on our bike again, so after school he rode it gently to a repair shop while I walked there. On my way I saw a couple good shots, thought I would take them to get a jump start on the photo blog process, but my luck was not with me. The camera was, but sans memory card. The memory card was with Evan.

However, once we got home we took a short walk, and I had plenty of photo opportunities then. This tree is right around the corner from us, and definitely in full bloom.

Here are some of the petals on the ground.

Some barbed wire in a neighbor's yard. I'm a little bummed that the export feature I've been using in Lightroom is doing this to the portrait (vertical) pictures. I'd prefer a small black border and the same orientation, versus this black sidebar thing. If anyone knows Lightroom well enough to give advice, I'd be grateful.

And last but not least, the neighborhood dogs begging some meat on a stick from Evan. He gave them some, and now we have friends for life.
