San Francisco

New Year, New Post

2017 wasn't my year. Shortly after my last post I was diagnosed with colon cancer which derailed all of my plans. But it's 2018, and 12 rounds of chemo and two surgeries later, I'm hopefully cancer free and getting ready to pick up where I left off, if I can remember exactly where that was. But I'll start my return with a new post! This photo is already on Instagram, but at least here you can see it in higher quality!

I shot this in San Francisco City Hall. As you can see, it's a popular place to go to get your marriage license. 

Why Would You Want To Purchase This?

I've been pretty inconsistent with my photos lately because I haven't been out to shoot much due to laziness, business, and etc. This is from the last time I was out doing something interesting which naturally resulted in me being escorted off the top floor of a hotel by security. The sad part is that none of my pictures from up there even turned out. 

I don't know if I've advertised for it on here before, but I also have a Tumblr! Every image that is on this blog also ends up shared on Tumblr, so if that's your preferred method of partaking in social media, then follow my page on there and reblog my posts so more people can see them! You can click on the image below to be taken to the page and take a look around. I quite like the random button at the top, so you can have a fun look through some of my past posts. 

Even more news, Squarespace, which my site is built and hosted on recently made a bunch of changes and updates and stuff, one of which was making the commerce option available to all users without having to pay an additional fee. What this means for me is a more convenient option for selling prints (you may have noticed I took down the old store page quite some time ago because it was pretty inconvenient for me to update), and so I might try doing a new thing where I add each image from my blog posts to the store. We'll see how that works out and how lazy I am. I aim to add all the stuff from old posts too. I mean, it isn't like anyone buys anything anyway but I might as well add the store back. Who knows, maybe one of my images will go viral or something. I mean, probably not, because people only really share funny things, but whatever. 

So here it is. I guess I'll be adding this to the bottom of all of my posts from now on. I hope it doesn't offend anyone or anything. That said, I hate that I have to come up with a title for the images that I put in the store. I suck at coming up with real titles. 

Best of Fall 2013

Okay, so I'm a little late. Everybody else did their best of lists a few days ago, but I didn't access to my computer at that point. I briefly skimmed through my photos from this past semester about an hour ago, hastily selected some shots, hastily edited them, and then exported them. To be honest, I was just feeling pretty lazy and I spent a couple hours editing some portraits earlier so I really didn't feel like paying attention to all of the details in these edits. Did I miss some good pictures in creating this list? Absolutely! Can I be bothered to do a second pass to find any good photos I missed? No way. Will I do better in creating my Spring 2014 list? We can only hope.

Dude. It's 2014. Whoa! 

I think I jumped the gun with my last list. I think some of those pictures might have actually belonged on this list, but I can't do anything about that now. I mean, I totally could, but I'm not going to. I should note that some of these might not be the "best" photos, but they are my personal favorites.
