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.)

Well, hello there

Well, hello there. How are you?

Sorry, I've been having what I think you might term a 'January slump.' Basically what it consists of is wishing I could sleep on the bed all day with the cats, instead of having to act like a normal human being and go outside, and to work and such, even though it's hibernation season. Don't worry, I'm still doing a pretty good impression of a functioning human being, but my impression of a blogger could be better.

Come on people! It's January. Let's take a nap. Mouse and Chee are totally down. In fact, they're already napping. We can just go and join them. Might not be a bad idea, considering our nation's huge sleep deficit and its likely side effects.

January's meant to be a time of renewal and reflection. It's a time to ponder the previous year and figure out how to make this new year even better. For some, that means resolutions. (I'll share mine with you all soon.) For some, that means choosing a word to act as a theme for the year. In 2011, my word was 'brave.' In 2012, I don't think I chose a word. For 2013 I'm still considering. I don't want to choose the wrong word. I think I'm leaning towards 'balance.' But I'm also pulled toward 'real.' So maybe I'll choose both.

I'm also thinking about starting something like a Happiness Project, just some way to stay accountable for the year with all my myriad goals. And myriad they are - I need to whittle them down to what's really feasible and what I really want to be doing.

I'll let you all know how it goes. Hopefully soon! Until then, here's a sneak peek at Chee's new favorite hideaway. It's all fun and games until somebody closes him in there unawares. I bet he'd get cold pretty fast!

Usually our fridge is much fuller - we were in the middle of cleaning it all out when he jumped in.
