There were many amazing moments that happened as I strolled San Fran's many piers on Saturday. I shot about 6 rolls of film and will have to wait a few weeks to get them back and post all my photos here. Yep. You heard right. Not a digital image in the bunch. I have gotten so used to shooting digital lately that I feel sloppy, like it doesn't matter if each shot counts because I'll just take another if I don't like it.
That's not how I become a better photographer.
So, I took my Nikon F100 and my 85mm lens I wanted to try out, and I shot film for about 8 hours straight.
I also met the lady featured in this photo. She is FANTASTIC and owns this shop. It's all charity based and her store was vintage heaven. I bought a blue, 1950s Saks Fifth avenue nighty for about $60.00 (cheaper than Victoria Secret!) and--the best piece ever, a blue dress that I will feature here on the blog in a post all of it's own.

She invited me back to San Fran to see a private showing of ALL her vintage pieces, a few Dior gowns in the $2,000 range, Oscar de la Renta and etc. If any of you want to join me for a piece of artistic heaven, let me know. I'll probably be going back in the Spring. You can read another cool piece about her (as well as see some of the great clothes that are donated to her) here.
