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.)

The Four Immeasurables

It's brushed silver, which means that it feels soft. I love the saddle shape of it, and that it feels perfectly balanced on my middle finger. It's in Thai, a language I know a very very little of, but still feel close to. It says 'love, passion, joy, equanimity.' Good reminders for us all. It's a Christmas gift from my mother that I just adore. I guess she knew when I mentioned it twice that I was serious!

Anyway, just thought I'd share that with you. You can have another look over at PineappleSeed where it comes from, if you're interested. I don't benefit in any way if you buy something from them, but I think they're a pretty awesome (San Francisco based!) company.

And some more interesting things I found recently around the web:

A lovely video about the Sartorialist here. (He takes photos of people on the street wearing stylish clothing. It's better than that sounds.)

Scott Kelby's Best of 2010 Awards. Worth a click.


  1. Great eye catcher here Jessica. And thanks for introducing me to "The Sartorialist". That video gave me some ideas as I start my 100 strangers project.

  2. Jess, love this post....the photo and the links are fantastic. Thanks!


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