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.)

Late Afternoon

I was searching for a decisive moment image here, I must have waited ten minutes or more at this vantage point for someone to walk across the street without too many cars in the intersection. In a perfect world, I would have liked to see no cars there, but it just wasn't happening and the light was changing too quickly, so I settled for this frame, which at least conveys a bit of what I was going for.


  1. I am glad you only had to wait 10 minutes...you could have been there for a while...

    I love the scene you captured - an everyday street scene...very cool that the person is even walking a dog! Love the lighting in this and the fog in the distant....very cool image!

  2. Very nice job and I think that the fact that they pedestrian happened to have a dog was double good luck. The coloring and saturation is just right. Nice work!

  3. The dog walker makes it for me too. Wonderful line and toning.

  4. With hills like this one, this can only be either Seattle or SF. And since you live in SF, guess it was shot there. ;D
    Like your post-processing, Jessica. Lovely scene and capture.


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