This has been sitting in my library for a little while now. It was actually shot in the “summer.” I quote summer because for those who live in SF, we know that when the rest of the hemisphere enjoys sun, heat, and clear skies, we have cold, fog, and wind.
Portra 800 and Contax 645 dev/scanned at RPL.
A couple of simple images from a recent trip to Napa and St. Helena. What a beautiful day it was trek it around North Bay.
how about a detour to treasure island
My apologies for not posting in two weeks. Yikes! Great news though… I am soon going live with an actual webSITE. Woohoo!! Perhaps a new blog even but that’s to be determined.
Stay tuned… :-)
summer in sf
Well, it’s summer in San Francisco. So while the rest of the world enjoys blue, sunny skies, we get to enjoy… Fog. Wind. And generally mild temperature.
Here’s to us SF’ers who make the most of it!!
Credit to Jen for the last photo… Such a great shot of me, it had to be included.
the general store
Probably one of the best-kept secrets in San Francisco lies in the Outer Sunset district. Perhaps you should google the title of this post and pay a visit. You will not be disappointed.
the fourth of july
Though it’s been a few weeks since we celebrated our nation’s “birthday,” I am just now getting to these images to post to the blog.
It was a quaint 4th with just a handful of good friends, new and old. For Emily and Oli, it was their first time in SF since being children. They’re grown New Yorkers now but SF still managed to show them a side they didn’t know.
As an aside, and with nothing to do with this post, I received three orders back from my lab this round and had a sense of clarity about my photography that I’ve never had before. While I’m still getting down all the nuances of shooting nothing but film (correct, these are film photographs) I feel so much better, more empowered, and more creative when I get my scans back. Not to mention there is literally little to no work needed required prior to posting. I’ll have a dedicated blog post about my thoughts soon.
Lastly, props to Carlo Silvio (@cowboycoffee) for the shot of Jen and myself. It’s the fifth one down. Carlo, for those who must know, is immediately below said aforementioned shot.
katie and dan
Katie and Dan got married recently and asked if I would be up for shooting it. I had to say yes, they let me shoot their special day on film! All of it.
Congrats, guys. An amazing day!!
I was invited down to Mr. Thomas Johnson’s house a few weeks back to shoot around his property. Each day Thomas will send out his “Garden Shot of the Day” email with an artful photo of anything from his garden. He’s quite the accomplished photographer so I didn’t hesitate to pack a couple rolls of Portra 160, 400, and TMax in 120 and 220 variants.
It was an early Sunday morning but a fantastic opportunity to focus on the details. Enjoy.
a weekend in sb
There will be more.
heart my contax
I LOVE my Contax 645.
