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.)

Purple Haze

Evan told me I shouldn't blog this because too much is out of focus. Ha! Showed him. (For those new to the blog this is another Lensbaby Composer and +10 macro filter shot. I actually am really liking the combo for a certain look. For sure, that look is not 100% in focus. But I've been loving the blur lately.)

So now that I've shown this to the general public, let me know what you think. Too blurry? Probably. You can tell me. I can take it.

In other news, I attempted to switch from coffee to tea this morning. I drank three cups of black tea, and I spent all day feeling slightly hazy (kind of like this flower! hmmmm...). Conversations were slower, objects seemed to move toward me at increased speed. I normally only drink one cup of coffee a day, but I am not a morning person. Never have been. I'm never really coherent until 3 hours after I wake up, doesn't matter what time. Coffee can push that back one or two hours, so it's been kind of a staple in my professional life. Just seems fair to me that if someone's paying me to do something I should be mostly coherent. I'll let you know how this experiment goes. I'm going to try again tomorrow. (I have visions of tea-drinking leading to some yoga-filled, uber-healthy, triathlon-winning, raw-vegetable-eating life. Most likely the first and last step will be the tea.)


  1. Stand alone I'm not crazy about it. But as a background to something else in might be perfect.

  2. Sorry, "in might be" should be "it might be"

  3. I'm liking to blur in this image, too. Really sets a mood! About weaning yourself off coffee - I had a similar experience many years ago. I cut out caffeine after many years of drinking about 12-20oz of strong coffee each morning to jumpstart the day. I actually got sick at first - bad headaches and dry heaves - and it took me a few weeks to adjust to the decaffeinated mornings. Now I wouldn't go back! I fool myself into thinking my decaf coffee or decaf tea gives me the added morning kick.

    P.S. Black tea has caffeine in it, too. Less than coffee, but more than decaf.

  4. I do not agree with Evan on this one. I agree with him as far as spiders go ;).
    I think it is a great Lensbaby image, I love the blurr and love the color.

  5. i love the color, and i love it with the story, but i do not love the blur alone... :)


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