2017, what a start. I’ve been doing a lot of rage baking, focusing on personal work and getting a big project off the ground.
More about that soon.
There are more wedding photos coming, but in the meantime, I spent a rainy afternoon preserving lemons. One jar of Meyer lemons from a friend’s dramatically over-productive tree, and one jar of gorgeous organic ones my neighbor dropped off the same day we harvested 20 lbs of Meyers because clearly we needed more lemons. Recipe via the maestro himself, David Lebovitz.
It’s been a busy spring, wedding season is starting up and I’ve been spending days out in the garden to get a break from all the computer time. A few weeks back some friends and I headed down to Pescadero to Harley Goat Farm, a small but gorgeous working dairy that offers tours of their facility and the chance to cuddle their baby goats! They have over 100 babies, they’re so cute everyone was losing their minds, myself included.
Absolutely worth the beautiful drive down, but don’t do what I did and wear nice clothes! (I held a baby goat anyway because BABY GOAT.)
Shot these with the Fuji X Pro1 35mm 1.4 and 14mm 1.2

I’ve been shooting quite a lot more with my Fuji during weddings, especially the details and ‘preparation’ images, the camera is so much less intrusive and I feel lighter without the weight of the DSLR kit hanging off me. This was shot on the coast, near Mendocino with the X-pro1 and 18-55 zoom.

I never tire of photographing weddings at San Francisco City Hall. It’s a breathtaking building, there’s always beautiful light, and I love how so many different kinds of people are being married under that dome.
Both images shot with the Fuji X-pro1, 18-55mm. Black and white processing in camera.
I’ve just returned from spending a few weeks in Vietnam and Thailand during which I gave my Fuji X-pro1 quite a workout. It performed perfectly, even in the middle of a rainstorm. Luckily, we had clear weather for our days in Ha Long Bay. Most of these images were shot with the Fujinon 18-55mm lens, which I picked up as a carry around lens for this trip, and while it’s perfect for vacation snapshots and casual shooting, it still doesn’t beat our the 35mm 1.4 for image quality and sharpness. They’ve now released a 23mm prime that looks fantastic, but costs nearly $900.
Radical Face is one of my favorite bands, but like an idiot I missed them the last time they toured. This time I was front and center for a stellar performance at the beautiful Great American Music Hall here in San Francisco. Photos shot on the Fuji 35mm 1.4 on the X-Pro1.
