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.)

Went to the beach today as part of our Valentines Day (more on that tomorrow), and I happened to just love this view of the wall that separates the beach from the street level. And this little girl (or boy - not sure) in the bottom corner of the shot just made it for me. Plus the silhouettes of all the people in the distance - love them!

For all of you suffering through snowy winters, I just want to make you feel a little better: yes, I have a beach, but I have to wear a sweater when I go. It's not a beach for swimming or tanning, exactly.


  1. Oh, to spend Valentine's Day at the beach, now that is what I call a wonderful afternoon! I love the depth in this w/ that blowing sand in the background...and you are right, that cute little girl makes the image!

  2. Oh - and that lady to the left of the toddler staring out at the waves - fabulous!

  3. Looks v romantic, dusty and mysterious, thanks for bringing us along!

  4. Hi!
    Great shot! The little one looks so small compared to the wall. Have a great day!


  5. Very nice. You're right, people are not dressed for your typical beach scene. The bright yellow and red on the child with the rest of the colors muted really helps make this photo. Congratulations on another winner.


  6. Well composed shot Jessica. Like they say, the coldest day ever spent is a summer day in S.F.

  7. That's fantastic image, indeed. Very "decisive moment" :).

  8. Great composing and light. I like the legs dangling from the wall as much as I like the little kid.


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