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.)

Looking Up - Fire Escape

I was about 20 when I had a friend who introduced me to the joys of looking up.

"Look around," he said. "See all the other people on the street? How many of them are looking up? Will ever look up? Most people only ever look at what's directly in their path, if that."

It's a moment I think back to frequently, because he was absolutely right. Much as we hate to admit our resemblance to scurrying ants, hastening to get our particular bit of the leaf back to the nest, then go out and get another back safely home as soon as we can, the simile is apt.

I like to think of myself as the wayward ant, because I look up quite often, and it's usually worth it. If you go to the top of the blog, there's a drop-down menu  called 'Categories.' It's not as well organized as I would like, and a lot of the older posts are not categorized, but since I started the system I've apparently logged 10 images (11 including this post) that I felt deserved the category 'looking up.'

You should try it too.
