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.)

Sunday Unusual

This image is not my usual style. It's dark, it's not completely sharp (as I may be a bit anal about having my images be), and it's not my usual subject matter.

Mouse over the image to see the color (and uncropped) original. 

But as I was walking home the other night in the thick fog, this kind of image was all I could think of. An indistinct figure at the end of a tunnel of trees and houses, walking into the light. But there were few other people out in the inclement weather and I doubted the image would present itself exactly as I imagined it. Then this man stepped out onto the street in front of me, and so I quickly got out my camera. I only had the time to take a few blurry frames - this was the sharpest one - and then he was gone again, into the mist. I've tried to process the image so that the lack of sharpness isn't such a detractor, but what this really is is a sketch, something I'll (hopefully) be able to reshoot later and better.

Until then, let me know what you think.

PS Thanks to Scott Law for teaching me how to do the mouse over technique on the blog. I've said it before, but Scott, you're awesome!
