While it’s been raining today, California is in a serious drought. So much so that things were flowering in the middle of January. While I’m despairing a bit at the implications of this overall weather pattern, I was able to get in some nice gardening and time in the backyard.
Ok, I’ve actually been itching to get these out, but wanted to have a couple of posts in-between so that you’re not bombarded with flowers. I posted a couple of weeks ago a set of photos I took at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco nine years ago when I was fifteen. Now that I live in the city I went back, camera in hand. It was interesting to see how I’ve changed since then- I feel like I can photograph a wider range of shapes than I could before, although I need to give my fifteen year-old self some credit. I am 95% self taught when it comes to photography and it was good to know that I’m improving (that’s at least what I think, as this can be a very subjective matter). Form your own opinions!
I had never been to Baker Beach before and after being invited over for a barbeque, I had the “Oh so THIS is that beach where everyone takes those pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge” moment. I wasn’t cool enough to walk away without trying for something, and I think it turned out rather nice.
…literally! I’m officially a resident! I registered to vote here and everything. This makes me legit 😀 Matt (amazing boyfriend and partner) and I and another couple we knew from college are renting a house in the Outer Sunset District, aka fogsville in the summer. But we’re two blocks away from Golden Gate park, and an easy mile away from the beach. This will be our third month here, and we’re really happy so far.
Admittedly, I haven’t taken a ton of pictures yet, but I have a small set of black and whites from Golden Gate Park. Enjoy!
