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 35 - More Stars

So yeah, more stars. Don't kill me. They're just so much fun! And I also forget to switch out the aperture disc a lot of the time.

This is a hibiscus on the path from our bungalow to the beach. It was a pretty great vacation . . .

Day 34 - Seeing Stars

Recently I've become addicted to the star aperture in my Lensbaby. And honestly, when I get a result like this, the addiction just grows stronger. I took this on our first full day in the islands. Just outside our bungalow was this little pond with flowers like this.

Day 33 - The Moon

We traveled to the islands overnight, and we got to see dawn on the way. This is a river next to the bus stop where we spent three hours waiting for the next bus, from 5 am to 8 am.

Day 32 - The Delicate Nature of Electronics

I skipped taking photos this day because of the Thai New Year Festival, Songkran. It's basically a giant countrywide water fight that lasts for 3-5 days in April. Fearing for my cameras, I packed them away in their camera bag and deposited that in a large (hopefully waterproof) plastic garbage bag.

It worked. I got completely soaked several times. Numerous water pistols were aimed and fired in my direction, several buckets full of icy water were summarily dumped on both my front and back, but the cameras survived.

However, no pictures. Sorry.

Day 31 - A Legal Addiction

Evan and I were packing for our trip to the islands, and I admit to being less than totally inspired, photographically speaking. So I looked around the house . . . boring boring boring . . . oooh! something shiny!

Pulled out the Lensbaby, popped in the star aperture, and we were in business. Hard to come by fresh milk in Thailand, it spoils in record time, and since I only really like it in my coffee, having milk for my coffee is tough. To the rescue: instant cappuccino!

No, I'm not proud of myself. But a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do, right?

Don't answer that.
