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 103 (June 22) - Plumeria or Frangipani?

These flowers are on a tree in my garden. I am used to calling them by their Hawaiian name, plumeria, but I believe they are also known as frangipani? They smell divine, no matter what you call them.

Day 102 (June 21) - Beach. Yes, Beach.

I love this photo. Naysay all you want, I will stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I can't hear you (as I do when Evan says to me 'Jessica, I don't think the Lensbaby is good for landscape shots').

Well! I disagree. I think sometimes it is just perfect for landscape shots, especially beach shots. (Just to recap, the Lensbaby Composer is a lens that has one spot in the image in focus, and then blurs the rest. It's like a curved tilt/shift lens, and it's manual focus only, but very very fun to play with. The size of the in focus area increases as the aperture gets narrower; I shot this at f/5.6. The shot from Friday night was at f/2, almost nothing in focus there.)

Day 101 (June 20) - More Lensbaby at Night

A lantern at a bar on Koh Samet, an island near here where we went for the weekend.

Day 100 (June 19) - Statues At Night

A couple shots I took in Bangkok Friday night. First with my 50mm f1.8, second with my trusty Lensbaby Composer, which is dang tough to focus when it's dark. So that's my excuse why it isn't in sharp focus, and I'm sticking to it.
