Meet Sherman

Meet Sherman. He’s 12 years old but doesn’t look a day over 6!

How can you resist those eyes?

The answer is you can’t. You just can’t.

Bay To Breakers 2013

Bay to Breakers.  Equal parts footrace, Halloween, spring break dance party, and freak show.  Add a beautiful fog free San Francisco morning and expect the debauchery to double.

This year I put on a pink wig, drank some vodka, and did some street photography.  Check out some of my sights at Bay to Breakers 2013.

I looked around, but I didn’t see any Angry Birds waiting to attack this green pig.

A Colorful Saturday Morning

Spent my Saturday morning getting blasted with color, then rode my bike across town looking like a bag of Skittle.  Fun times.

Check out a few stills from the Color Run in downtown San Jose.

50’s Housewife Self Portraits

Amazing light was pouring in through my kitchen window and I just couldn’t ignore it.  So what’s a girl to do when she wants to take pictures but no one’s around? How about some self portrait indulgence?

I decided to go a bit retro, well a lot retro actually.  Years ago I found this polka dot number at a San Diego Salvation Army (for a whopping 5 bucks!) and I knew it would be perfect for the overworked, but happy, 50’s housewife vibe I was going for.  Add a tripod and a remote trigger and we’re good to go.

I just adore everything Pin Up – The perfectly coiffed hair, the cat eyes, and of course the oozing femininity of it all.  Sometimes I wish I could travel back in time and spend my days looking fabulous while cooking dinner with a pound of lard.

But then again, I remember how damn comfortable my sweatpants are.  Oh well, it’s fun to play dress up for just a day.

Hope you enjoy my selfies =)

Music tip.  If you too want to get into a Pin Up inspired mood, check out this mix: Soundtrack for a Modern Pin Up Girl. Go ahead and get your baking a pie va va voom on. Whatever you do, don’t forget the red lipstick.
