I forgot the name of this shop. It’s a garlic store that decorated their window with this interesting garlic character. Picture snapped along a stroll along Powell Street, San Francisco, CA.

Plants Growing from Wood Stem https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/6/photoartful-2

Seeing this nature view fascinated me. Nothing artistic arose from this image, which is why I haven’t posted on my main Photo|Artful site for sale. Still it deserves a public showing, so I’ve decided to post it on my blog.

Golden Gate Bridge Cliff https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/6/Golden-Gate-Bridge-Cliff

While I visited the Marin Headlands, I couldn’t resist photographing the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking wasn’t a challenge, but finding a level spot proved challenging. However, I finally planted my tripod on flat ground and waited patiently until barely any sunlight remained. Then I snapped photos. In the background, you can view the Bay Lights [...]

Scenic Sunny Selby – Tilden Park https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/6/Scenic-Sunny-Selby-Tilden-Park

WOW! One weekend, I visited Tilden Park and looked for the hidden Indian Caves. After I failed, I decided to walk along a new trail. That’s when I discovered this beautiful, picture perfect scenery on the Selby trail. I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Marin Headlands Curvy Mountain Lights https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/6/Marin-Headlands-Curvy-Mountain-Lights

Nature whispered my name, and I listened. The warm weather attracted me to the outdoors this weekend, and I complied. I slipped on my favorite hiking boots, packed an extra pair of pants and hoodie (wearing shorts isn’t safe in the city), then headed out towards San Francisco. And then the Marin Headlands. Approximately 9:00pm, [...]

The Slump… https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/5/photoartful It’s the moment when a pinkish bending cloud is actually…a cloud. It’s a scene when an orange sunset floods the darkening sky with a bright glow but your only thought is…a sunset. That’s the definition of a slump—when laziness or other saddening feelings dissolve the creative shell surrounding your brain. When reality replaces the juxtaposing creative vision of life. My legs are stone boulders; my shoulders lean sluggishly in my chair. The summer season arrives soon, but I’m experiencing the slump. Why, oh why?

Now, though, I feel excited again about picking up my camera. Continuing my mission to photograph the intricacies of the Bay Area, showcasing the area as an art piece. Maybe one day I’ll display a map and represent points as my pictures. That sounds like an interesting project.

Perhaps I’m too commercial. So far I’ve done everything but place advertisements on my website. Maybe it’s time I treat my photography as art instead of something that can generate a buck immediately.

Maybe I should attend a photography class. Alongside business classes. I can transform into one of those profitable artists. But then again, I would have to constantly gauge market demand and invest further in equipment. And marketing expenses—PPC ads, affiliate advertising, displays banners, galleries, revenue shares—eventually grow and grow and provide diminishing returns.

Yeesh! No wonder I’m trapped in a slump. I’m thinking too hard about possibilities instead of present abilities.

I’ll sneakily shake softly the slump that slithered so sneakily like a slippery snake into my soul. By picking up my camera again. And practicing the capture of the perfect photograph with my humble Olympus E-520. Maybe I’ll keep admiring and imitating the photographic artwork of this guy (flatbackoverchrome photography) [chuckles].

Time to go. Toodles!

Trees and Shadows II https://photoart.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/5/Trees-and-Shadows-II-1

Inspiration happens anywhere! Especially in the grandiose Mount Diablo state park. This fine art photograph (and almost abstract) captures the moment when discovering an interesting balance of trees and shadows. Against the golden yellow grass field, the appearance of a real-life canvas lays open. If not for my interest in fine art, still life photography [...]

While traversing Ocean Beach on a warm afternoon, I noticed a wall filled to the brim with decorative graffiti. I was only able to snap several photographs because there was so many! If you’re searching for a graffiti gallery, this is definitely a spot worth checking out!
