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.)

Another image from early morning, just a different angle but the same place I took the bridge photo. I have some exciting images from today's shooting, but I haven't processed any yet, so you'll just have to settle for this one. And proof that it's always somewhat foggy here in San Francisco.

In my watermarking journey I've been attempting to make it happen on export from Lightroom, but that just hasn't been working that well for me. For this image I took it into Photoshop and created it there, which works a lot better. I can control color, size, and placement much better. I'd still like to be able to automate the process, and the less I do in Photoshop the better, just in terms of time, but maybe for a while I'll work this way until I figure out what kind of watermark will work best with all images.


I don't have a dog, but there's nothing better than watching one run. I just love how dogs give a two second run everything, as if there's never been a run before and never will one come again. Which is why I had to grab this picture as I was walking by, even though I don't know this dog and likely never will. And why I'm posting it, even though it's not actually perfectly sharp.

If I could run with that much joy, I'd be in a lot better shape.

(By the way, thanks for all your helpful comments yesterday about watermarks. Many of you said insightful things. I am still trying to find the perfect balance between all the reasons for having one.)
