More Film from San Francisco

More Film from San Francisco

February 01, 2011

Just got some film back from the lab, more cross processing.  Some of it is from last fall, some great shots from San Francisco.  I haven't gotten through everything yet but here's three images I just edited and figured I'd share.  Love them!  The cross processing on this batch isn't over-dramatic, but definitely adds an interesting element which I thoroughly enjoy.

Going to reorganize my external hard drive over the next couple of days.  I have folders from 5 years back or so, no uniform naming conventions on folders or files, stuff all over the place.  I really want to have a nice clean archive and accessible final edits and websize edits.  So that'll be a bit of a project.

My website is going to be reconstructed soon as well!  Waiting until after I archive my hard drive and images, then going to make my web portfolio even better!!!  Stay tuned.




These two were from the Conservatory of Flowers in the Golden Gate Park out on the West Coast.

This amazing Buddha was in the Japanese Tea Gardens in the Golden Gate Park as well.

If you talk to anyway wave hunting lately, most everyone is pretty annoyed with this season's swell.  We usually expect big nor'easter storms to roll thru in the winter months, generating big waves and heavy offshore winds.  Last season we were totally spoiled with head to overhead 6-8'+ days regularly occurring once a week.  This season has been a little different, but perhaps that's a good thing to get me more accustomed to swimming in cold conditions.

I haven't been in the water for sunset in a while.  But the opportunity finally presented itself a couple weeks ago.  The sky was clear for once, there was a bump of swell in the water but apparently no one really deemed it worthwhile because the lineup was empty.  Fellow photographer friend Gus Potter grabbed his board instead of a camera, and the two of us hopped in with only half an hour or so before sunset to catch a few with the one other soul already in the water.  

It was a little windy and wonky, and certainly cold, but it was one of my favorite sessions this month.  You just can't beat that dusky light!

Shorebreak and Blood
Shorebreak and Blood

January 29, 2019

Shorebreak is a specific phenomenon.  When the change in bottom contours is so significant, and the wave action is high enough, these specific beach waves get jacked up and come crashing down right on the shoreline in a big way.  There is obviously the danger -- if the swell is heavy enough -- of getting caught in the impact zone just like any another wave, and having a massive force of water come crashing down on your head.  But perhaps the bigger shorebreak danger is getting sucked over the falls.  These waves are characterized by breaking on the shore, which means next to no water upon impact if you get sucked up and over and the wave slams you into the beach.  Now take all of that, and go swimming with a 7lb water housing.
