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.)

Into the Alleyway

Sometimes I think it's time for another trip. Travel is in my blood (literally! two generations of travel agents are in my family tree), and it always seems like a compelling answer. Surely, around the next bend are great photo opportunities. If I head to Paris, or back to Thailand, I can make great photographs!

But the truth is, if I spent as much time really seeing here as I do when I travel, when I wander around places for hours at a time, I wouldn't have to go anywhere. Witness this magical alleyway which I had never seen before but just happened on a few nights ago. Add to that some magical lighting, and I was set.

No need to jump on a plane. Just slip on some shoes, walk out the front door, and keep your eyes open.


  1. Love the glowing light in the passageway and in the buildings....so much cool stuff going on in this picture!

  2. I also am drawn to the light at ground level as it is obvious that sunlight would never penetrate the concrete canyon, But I am with you about "Looking" in your own "Ballywick"


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