Aaaah, neglecting my blog (and flickr and tumblr) lately. I have been feeling uninspired lately. But I think it’s coming back! Maybe!
This weekend is a San Francisco weekend. Yesterday, I went up to SF to meet a friend from flickr, Karleen (check out her amazing flickr stream and blog). I had such a lovely time! My only regret is that we didn’t end up talking about photography until the very end — she had some great tips and was teaching me how to shoot in manual mode. Next time, I won’t make that mistake! I have so many more questions that I bet she could so easily answer!
And today, I met up with a friend from graduate school, whom I hadn’t seen in 3 years. It was great to see him again too; just like old times. Except these were much less stressful circumstances compared to trying to get a PhD. We met at Blue Bottle, a coffee shop in San Francisco, which had amazing lighting. So Karleen’s tips + wide open windows = the beginnings of my photo mojo coming back.
Tomorrow will be the third and final day I have to go up to SF; this time, it will be to see J.’s friend, who’s visiting the US. Is it possible to turn pro at BARTing into the city? I’ve been training all weekend; I think I have a good shot at becoming the national champion.
