It was too sunny to stay indoors, so I took a walk on (the not creatively named) Ocean Beach.

The surf was pounding, the tide was high, I watched an oblivious kissing couple get drenched by a huge-yet-unexpected wave, the black sand section was glittering... It was a refreshing walk.

Penny Red is great!

Penny Red is great! It's lovely to hear a young woman describe the difficulty of living in a society where women are supposed to suppress their best selves and most important work to instead dote on men (who are allowed to maintain external priorities without having their value questioned). A thoughtful essay. #love #lifeswork #beyourbest #pennyred

My {former} photo club has organized an exhibit of contemporary cyanotype photograms!

My {former} photo club has organized an exhibit of contemporary cyanotype photograms!  For those of us who work in photograms, seeing work of this scale in a gallery show is a pleasant surprise.

This review of the show is from a local public television station.  The comments about the impermanence of cyanotypes seem a bit hazy, and likely relate more to using natural bodies of water to complete the chemical reactions than about the otherwise excellent stability of cyanotypes.

(This is also an encouraging step for SF Camerawork, which had often seemed to prefer conventional color work and portraiture.)

Here's my July 2015 Budapest photoset. It is almost entirely (a) the Hungarian Parliament building or (b) images of the Danube at night.

In 2015, I went to Budapest on business!! I'd never been that far east from home before. Budapest is a lovely city with scorching hot summers and extensive tourist infrastructure; it was a relief to speak English, because Hungarian too complex to learn spontaneously!

I'm trying to reconcile the photo collections across my devices, and realize that I still haven't shared images from back in 2014. I'm catching up, slowly...

I've already shared many photos of Basel, so here are just a few favorite snaps from this particular visit.
