Kid in the window

Sabrina Laver, 2, presses her face against the window of a restaurant after eating lunch in the Marina District of San Francisco, Calif. on Febuary 21, 2008.

I was eating lunch with my friend Allen when this little girl smashes her face against the window. It was cute and I couldn't pass up taking this photo. I really like the light.

Working dogs ride BART

I like to take photographs of dogs and I liked the way the light fur stands out against the darker background.

Stranger Furniture

In December, I visited the Pasadena Museum of California Art to see Bill Stranger's exhibit, "Second Growth." I grew up with Bill's daughter Thea, and our families have remained close throughout the years. Bill creates beautiful, organic pieces that are functional and retain the natural beauty of the wood. Here is some of his work. Photos by Alison Yin

Photo II: Golden Gate Park Assignment

As some of you already know, I am currently getting my BA in Journalism as SFSU. I am taking Photo II from Ken Kobre, and my first assignment for the class was to take candid of children in Golden Gate Park. This has always be a challenge for me because when I shoot kids in parks I stand out. It is very easy to pot a 6'6" guy lurking around kids. I am sure that at any moment someone is going to call the cops. Plus, often small children are scared of me. This shoot went well, however, and I was only asked if I was a pedophile. I politely said. "nope."

These are the images I submitted for my first assignment for class.

Fresh Walnuts and Pomelos!

Last Sunday I was treated to fresh walnuts and pomelos off of Crows Landing Road in Modesto when I was sent out to enterprise. Modesto is fairly dead on Sundays, particularly Super Bowl Sunday when people are indoors watching the game, so I felt very lucky to find these three: Juan Rodriguez at his fruit stand with friends Jose and Petra Obideo.
