Shake

Shake


I was in Austin last week, and we took a trip to the Austin Flea Market. There, I saw this monkey.

Disco Fever

Disco Fever

I was downtown on Halloween, and noticed that the local Irish pub had a disco ball and floor set up. I don't quite understand why that is, but the photo nearly shot itself.

Pit Stop

Pit Stop

Shot from the sidelines of the Folsom Street Fair this year.

Throw Baby from the (Cal)train

Throw Baby from the (Cal)train

I've been terrible about keeping up with my blog lately (perhaps as my own standards have become more critical), but maybe I can work on that.

On Saturday, I went up to the city -- with the idea of either seeing Fleet Week, or the last day of the Cindy Sherman exhibit at SF Moma. Photography won; planes lost. But I did manage to catch this as I disembarked from a super-packed Caltrain on the way home.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper


Every year, I try to photograph the San Francisco Pride Parade. There's huge, monster turnout, as a happy city turns out for what is effectively an all-day celebration of some of the best things about San Francisco. You get these great characters who are literally on parade, and the result is a wonderful chance to take some pictures.

This shot was driven by two things: Last year, I got this shot of one of those SF cheerleading groups tossing people in the air. I wanted to get more of that action -- I love seeing people take flight! The other is the Airship Ventures zeppelin, which has been everywhere lately. I'd seen it in the sky all morning, and I'd been looking to include it in a composition. This is the result -- tough exposure, but one of my favorite shots from this year.

Colored Folks

Colored



This is the other shot I got from last Saturday that really had me looking at colors working together in a scene. That same direct, late afternoon light is at work just like my previous image -- and the angular shadows make this slightly weird image work for me.
