ocean sunset

I awoke on Saturday morning to the sun streaming in my windows and with a sudden urge to visit the ocean.  Cue afternoon trip to the outer sunset with best friend to visit some of these places and watch the sun set over the Pacific. It was one of those days that made me fall in love with SF all over again.

Yes, I promise, the sunset was this amazing, oscillating between purples and pinks and rich oranges and red as you looked from left to right across the horizon. Incredible. And aren’t the succulents in the backyard of  General Store adorable? I love me some succulents.

I love these black and white photographs of Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger. It’s so sad he’s gone from us. Their love…. its heartbreaking..

daydreaming in san francisco

At least every couple of months I like to take a lazy Sunday when I have no other plans, grab a friend and just walk around San Francisco a bit in a state of daydream, taking pictures of things that inspire me. It reminds me of how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful city (and why my rent is so high) with so many cool and interesting neighborhoods, shops and restaurants.  Being appreciative is always a good thing, as is getting inspired by the beauty around you. And I know this DVN quote has been making its rounds in the blog world, but I just couldn’t resist incorporating it in this post because I love it and its message so much. The world would be such a more boring place without a little imagination, right?

snapshots from a life in bloom

It’s officially springtime in San Francisco, as the sun is out and all of the flowers are in bloom.  It has inspired me to get out and take some pictures and practice my photography skills. These photos actually remind me that I need to stop and smell the proverbial roses more often. They’re quite nice. xx
