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.)

City Hall, Another View

I may, or may not have mentioned my small addiction to coffee on this blog before. I know, I sound like a broken record. Anyway, there is now significant evidence that this addiction is creating a negative effect on my life, and isn't that when you know you have a problem?

So last week Evan and I went to see Rufus Wainwright sing with the San Francisco Symphony (a little history:  I have had a major musical crush on Rufus since high school, and this is probably the fourth or fifth time I've seen him live. In fact, I bought the tickets thinking it was going to be him doing his own show, not even realizing that the symphony was going to be involved).

Anyway, it was Friday night after a long week and we walked by a Philz coffee, which I had never tried, and so I figured no time like the present right? Even though they don't have lattes on the menu I got them to make me one, and then we walked the next few blocks to Davies Hall, where the symphony plays. I am a slow drinker so I determined to break the law and smuggle my coffee into the hall in my camera bag. And then there may or may not have been a small accident when I stood up to let someone pass us in our row.

Long story short? My bag still smells like coffee, even after I washed it out, and I may have learned a new life lesson: drink faster!
