Walking New Year 2020

Here are a couple of iPhone 11 Pro Max images from yesterday’s first photo walk of 2020 San Francisco. The glow of the sun on the columns of the Union Bank building on California Street made a compelling subject. We stood across the street and waited. This woman seemed to see me and started to […]

January Light in San Francisco’s Chinatown

One of my favorite photo adventures this year was on Friday, January 2, 2015, when I met up with my photo buddy Doug Kaye in San Francisco. As usual, we met at the Ferry Building and then we headed up to Chinatown. At the time in January in San Francisco, the sun was coming straight […]

Photography in San Francisco’s Chinatown: Ross Alley and Vinton Court

San Francisco’s Chinatown is an area rich in photographic opportunities for street photographers! My friend Doug Kaye and I always enjoy a few hours on the streets of Chinatown – so many interesting places, always a lot of people out walking, etc. – it’s a perfect street photography venue. And, if you time it right […]

The Stools on San Francisco’s Stockton Street

My friend Doug Kaye and I seem to get to San Francisco’s Chinatown a couple of times each year for one of our street photography adventures. We love the small alleys in Chinatown for their beautiful textures and, during some times of the year, amazing light and shadows. But we also love Stockton Street – […]

Early January Light in the Alleys of San Francisco’s Chinatown

On Friday, January 2, 2015, Doug Kaye and I met up for one of our regular photo walks on the streets of San Francisco. We had done a bit of planning in advance using The Photographers Ephemeris which showed that the sun would be streaming down the “north/south” streets of San Francisco beginning about 11:30 […]

That Decisive Moment – Street Photography in San Francisco’s Chinatown

Lots of credit – deservedly so – has gone to the notion of “the decisive moment” in photography and its origin with Henri Cartier-Bresson. The notion is a precise capture at the moment of most interest. In late August, Doug Kaye and I went exploring in San Francisco’s Chinatown. We came across this lovely alley […]

A Beautiful Friday in San Francisco

Doug Kaye and I headed out today on to the streets of San Francisco. We met up at the Ferry Building – where Doug showed me his big surprise – a Leica M6 that he’d just acquired. The M6 is one of the classic Leica film bodies. Doug’s been accumulating a collection of Leica lenses […]

More Multiples in San Francisco Street Photography

Last week I did a post about multiples in San Francisco street photography. It’s a fun – and, frankly, a pretty lazy technique. Why do I say lazy? Because you simply plant yourself at an interesting location (a carefully chosen interesting location!) and shoot away. The goal is to capture a series of images of […]

That Woman Reading on the Platform

Doug Kaye and I went exploring in San Francisco today – meeting, as usual, around Embarcadero Center and then heading out. We caught the 1 California bus on Sacramento St. and headed up to Portsmouth Square in Chinatown. Lots of interesting people – as usual – playing games and smoking in the park. From there. […]
