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.)

I took this photo tonight after work on my way home. I took about 5 photos of bicyclists coming towards me and then my camera battery died (let this be a lesson! always charge your batteries!) which was a real shame since the light was absolutely gorgeous. Also I think with a few more frames I could have got a better shot. ;)

Still there's enough I like about this one to post. I've been shooting less recently, trying to focus more on starting the business and getting all that handled, and then less on processing new 'fine art' (translation: no one asked me to take them) photos. But I miss it, and I've kind of run out of stuff to post on the blog. So I think I'm going to try to start shooting a little more.

Anyway, let me know what you think about this one. I wanted the bicyclist blurry, and in the bottom right corner of the shot. But I still think there are a few things that could be improved.


  1. Jessica I like the wet streets and the lighting. I do think the bicyclist might be just a bit too blurry. I actually looked at it quickly and then moved away because of the "dark splotch" in the middle. The only reason I came back was because I have enough respect for your past work to take a second look. I know if I'd looked longer before reading you post I would have figured out what it was. The problem is that your intended point of interest is the most difficult thing in figure out in the photo. Just my .02 worth.

  2. Dusk shots sure can be cool but I would call this bit of Art, The ghost of cyclists past, top attempt with a dicey battery, I have had that give strange results on my DSLR!


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