Cardboard what?







Need to use this camera again. Feeling quite blurry and fuzzy lately...

Diana Camera...miss you so much...


These were taken on my first day back at work in 2010. We usually get the Holidays off and come back the first week in January. These are from my walk on my way back home from work. During that magic hour when the sun is leaving us for the night and the cold winter air enraptures.

Feliz Año Nuevo

So it is 2010 and I am ready to do some good work! Well, I did take some mean photos last year, I think! But maybe this year will be one of organizing, moving forward and achieving some goals... Shall we?
Here are some pictures I took of my father back in 2003 when we went to visit my brother up in Seattle. I was just cleaning out some old files when I found them. I think they make up a nice portrait of him.

Happy New Year!

I sent 2 limited edition Holiday Cards this year.
If you didn't get one it is because I don't have your snail mail address. So if you want to be included next year, email me and let me know where to send it.
I wish for an incredible year 2010 where we can be successful, happy and rich!

Before the end of the year. Part 2

I self-published a book using blurb.com and I am part of a photography show at Blush Wine Bar in the Castro.
Here are the two photographs I have in the show.
They are for sale, so if you would like to look at them, they will be up at Blush until mid January 2010.

Also, Here is the info for the show and the list of the other artists.

The book is called Flowers Weekly and it is based on the exercise of buying cut flowers every Wednesday at the Civic Center Farmer's Market in San Francisco. I know how some people feel about cut flowers, but I, like my Grandmother, am of the believe that we should enjoy flowers (receive them and give them) while we are alive. Living in San Francisco, with cats that love eating them, the best way for me to enjoy them is when I buy them on my way to work and enjoy them in my office.

Before the end of the year.

I figured that I should post something before the year ends on Thursday. So much happened this year and so little I posted. In actuality, you can go to Flickr and see all I have done/photographed...
San Francisco got so cold at the end of November that it snowed for about 2 minutes.
I was in my office when I looked out the window. This is the only snap that I was able to take before it was over.

I know it is not the best, but at least it shows something... I don't miss the snow, but is its always fun to see the very first flurries falling...

Harvest is done and Fall rolls in...

As my sister came to visit for just a couple of days and left so soon, I was left with the reminder that family is so important and so different from where I am at this moment in my life. It was great seeing her, but I wish we had more time together. These grapes are from a vineyard we helped harvest while visiting with friends.

Now you will be getting all my postings in one day... Couldn't resist!
I went to a party at Isotope Comics and I met a very talented artist named Rafael Navarro. I had the best time just getting introduced to an incredible selection of graphic novels and fun-all-around artists. At one point Mr Navarro asked me to take a picture, I looked up from where I was sitting and this is the picture I took. The man in the purple suit is no other than James Sime, the owner of Isotope.

I am sick today, but saw the light

Today I stayed home, posted the flower series below and here and took this picture of the Sun coming in my window. Today, was that kind of perfect fall day when the air is crisp and the sky bright blue.

Flowers Weekly

Again, I have not posted in a while. Since all I have is one follower, I guess, I don't feel too bad... But seriously, I should get this blogging thing together and try harder.
If you care to know, I carry my camera with me everywhere, do I care to take it out of my bag and actually use it? Yes, I do care, but I don't do that every day.
I am consistent in my inconsistency. I don't have the same routine every day. I do, but I don't. I am inconsistent at best. What I am consistent about is the way my photographs look. The way I see color, frame the image, etc. I don't take delicate pictures that look antique and romantic, even when I try, there is a sense of bold colors I can't get rid of...
Click on the title to see the series in Flickr. Here are a few. I try to go to the farmer's market every Wednesday on my way to work, there I try to buy flowers for my office. Although, I don't get to do this every week, I try at least...Didn't I say, inconsistent? If you know what kind of flowers these are, you are welcome to email me or comment here. I usually buy those I can afford and those I am attracted to when I am there. Reds and yellows seem to be popular in my book.

Fresh zucchini blossoms I found at the farmers' market today. Gorgeous to look at and delicious to eat. I discovered them last week and bought some to put on homemade pizza that turned out delish!! Tonight I made pasta with them. And also had homemade bread. Yes I made that myself too. How spoiled could I be? Well, don't be too jealous, no company tonight.
