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.)

Self Portrait


We have an elephant mirror in our bedroom that we brought back from Thailand. I thought about doing a self portrait in it, and then I noticed the selective focus and decided to make a diptych out of it. I'm not in love with the light, and I probably could have shown a little more finesse in putting the two images together in Photoshop, but I kind of enjoy the concept. Maybe I'll try this again later with a more interesting photographic subject.

  3. Ah Jessica, I think I see flowers on that elephant. LOL. Great concept. I'd like to see you expand it to include another photo with a focus somewhere right in the middle.
    My daughter would flip for this mirror 'phants are her favorite.

  8. Could swear I replied to this post once already. Must have been at the time that wordpress was having those huge problems. Anyway, this is a unique treatment of showing off your treasures and getting a shot of yourself at the same time. While I love your cute elephants, I am disappointed we did not get a few words about yourself and who you are.

  9. Don't know why the "LCRC" should have been attached to the previous post. This is Iona. The LCRC is short for Lawrence County Republican Committee - I manage the website, but it wasn't even open so it should not have been attached. I did not notice the ID was on the page below when I went to post the comment. Sorry.
