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.)

San Francisco From Above

I'm in Florida for the week working on a super exciting video project. So naturally I took some shots out of the plane window. Man! That airplane window really degrades image quality. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Because out of quite a few photos, most are really sucky. I see now why helicopters are the vehicle of choice for most aerial photographers. No window = no sucking.

But I liked this one, even so. I was so happy to get a shot of SF with the iconic bridge and a few boats. So what if it's not razor sharp, right? Right?


  1. I like the not so super tack shot...it adds to the mood of the element and brings out a rather hazy effect! A really good image from a plane's window!

  2. You are right about airplane windows, but I enjoyed looking at this photo in spite of that. Hope things are going well in Florida.

  3. The photo is fantastic but not as super as the adjective "SUCKY" I am advising you that I have stolen it and will use it on every conceiveable occasion! Happy Project!

  4. Wow jessica you nailed it with this one. I love this photo!

  5. Hey you captured the scene!! Well done!!

  6. I have no problem with the window scuzz. I think it makes it look very filmy and less digital. Also, dang! the boat placement is impeccable.

    work the scuzz! work it!


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