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.)

In Motion

Often when I wait for the bus after work I practice my panning. There I stand at the bus stop, looking impossibly dorky with my camera to my eye, firing shot after shot at the passing bikers. The others at the bus stop try not to catch my eye or get in front of my camera. And I actually know how they feel. Today on the bus a Japanese tourist (I assume Japanese, with pretty good evidence) pointed his something-D with a 24-70 L lens on it at me from 3 feet away, and I admit I felt a bit awkward. I looked down at my iPhone fixedly, and then was glad mine was the next stop.

But somehow I feel that shooting people in motion as they glide by me is not so bad. My thanks go out to this gentleman who is clearly in tune with his elegant, slender-spoked steed. He looks good riding by and now I will always remember this 1/20 of a second, thanks to him. When man and metal were merged, just for a moment. And everything else was just a blur.


  1. Picture perfect...and perfect timing!

  2. Superb shot on this one Jessica. It makes me want to go try again. I know how tricky this is.


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