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.)

For a flower that is such a pain to type, these are really rather pretty. I mean, come on, when have you seen such a bevy of u's hanging out before?

There are words that have two u's, no problem. Like, for example, unique. Or unruly. But three? All in a row? It's like a bad Scrabble hand. But in Scrabble you'd inevitably be missing the C and never be able to put the word on the board. Perhaps you'd settle for nun, or ran, or sauna if you're creative (and had an extra a). I'm sympathetic. Scrabble can be frustrating.

But fortunately, you don't need to know their name to appreciate the tightly packed concentric petals of the ranunculus. Or their gorgeous colors. And you don't even need to have any nearby, because, fortunately for you, I took a photo. And here it is.

See you tomorrow!


  1. I don't think I can even pronounce those flowers, but wow, as hard as they are to say or spell, they are drop dead gorgeous!

  2. What a beautiful photo, and the coral color is fantastic (I always want the red ranunculus; now I see the erroro fo my ways!)

  3. Such a fabulous flower. I wonder why I don't have any in my garden? Must query my staff. ;-)

    You did a super job on this - I love the focus on the single bloom and the sweet bokeh. Lovely!


  4. LOL - Yes you did! Thank you. That was a bright spot in my day.

  5. I love the colors and I love the shallow depth of field on this one.
    I think I will finally move my .. back nd go get some flowers to photograph :).

  6. Beautiful image. Beautiful flowers. very nicely done.

  7. This picture would look great in a frame. Did I mention I love those flowers? ;)

    Beautiful picture!

  8. I really like the selective focus on this one and the bokeh is great. Nicely done.


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