Took this cutie out to take some professional head shots. Gettin' ready!

my heart urged me and my hand answered.

Took a walk a couple weekends ago and found this tiny white garage hidden on Noe Street. Lilac-colored flowers draped over it from vines in the garden above. I almost lost my lens cap, I was so excited to take pictures.

Almost translucent petals.

hillside supper club.

On a spontaneous walk through the neighborhood one weekend, we decided to swing by the Hillside Supper Club for brunch. It's a lovely little restaurant nestled near the foot of Bernal Heights Hill, on the corner of Precita Park. I stumbled upon it while looking for shelter during one of last year's random rainstorms and have continued to go back for its homey food and rustic, out-of-the-way feel. I also really like their mason jar lights. 

I ordered the open faced fried egg sandwich and she had the egg white frittata.


Taking a break on the way up.

General aesthetics.

Snapixel Issue 10

Creativity is something you can try to avoid for a while, but you can never escape it. 

I used to write, interview, design and edit for the photography magazine Snapixel. The following three articles are from Issue 10 of the magazine. 

I particularly liked writing and designing Edward Olive's story - his wedding photography is defiant and sexy, highlighting the undercurrent of desire that is often downplayed in that genre. In contrast to Olive's smoldering B&W photos, fashion bloggers streetpeeper & theSFstyle provided bright and colorful images that were fun to play around with. Finally, I did a Q&A with Instragram co-founder Kevin Systrom that's featured at the end of the issue. Instagram was launched in October 2010 and we did this Q&A with him at the end of that year. Pretty cool looking back at those thoughts before Instagram became the heavyweight that it is today.

empty space.

I like to run my fingers along the callouses on your hands. 
I like to feel your grip on my skin.

Burlap and wild flowers.

It's the moleskin and the drafting pen.
