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.)

Points of Interest

Generally, when I compose a photo, I decide where I want the viewer's eye to go, and then I try to minimize all other distractions so that their eyes stay where I want them to. Usually, where I want their eyes to go is my point of interest - a person's face, an intersection, a flower, whatever is the subject of the photo.

In this case, there's nothing like that. I was just drawn to the play of light and shadow on this patch of clover.

So what do you think - is it too busy? Not interesting enough? Have you taken a similar photo, where there was no discernible subject?


  1. Jess, I think a bird or butterfly off-center would have added to the beauty of this pic. Of course, you may have been waiting there for days... 8-)


  2. I completely agree, Bill! Unfortunately I guess I'm just not patient enough to wait for the butterflies. :)


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