August Eighteenth, Two-Thousand and Eight

I've been such a bad blogger. Its been a rough couple of months for me, personally. But my non-personal excuse is that my work schedule changed so radically. I used to take pictures when I would walk to and from my retail job in Hayes Valley, but I've been working a ton in Berkeley. My least favorite city. Barting to Berkeley, apart from the sheer awfulness of the trek, does not impart very many opportunities for me to take pictures, compounded by the fact that I have my bike and I can't take people's pictures when I'm burdened by Old Pinky.
I'm going to try to be better, at a lot of things, this blog being the top of my short list.

I love this girl's haircut. I have been flirting with the idea of cutting all my long hair off. Her skirt has such great texture, and in the drabness of downtown, swamped by tourists these days, she stood out quite beautifully.

I see this adorable girl quite frequently, as I believe she works near me. She is always vintage chic, with her impeccable sleek hair. She told me she had cuter shoes on earlier, but it was the amazing silhouette of the huge boots that made me finally stop her for a picture.


August First, Two-Thousand and Eight

I love this girl. She is so effortlessly chic. So many great details, to the ever-popular cuffed trouser to the interesting top. She's so tall and modelesque.

This girl struck this pose like- bam. I love the matching shoes and bag. The sunglasses are so fun.

This guy was sitting on a street bench, penning a beautiful poem or story no doubt. His hat was sitting next to him on the bench, I asked him to put it on. Such a beautiful man, beautiful hat. So hard to pull off this gramps thrift store jacket, and he does it perfectly.

Such a pretty outfit, I love the denim motorcycle jacket. She has great rock'n'roll hair.

Street fashion as slow food. There is an urban garden in front of city hall right now, I'm not sure how long its going to be there, but its really amazing. It is extremely beautiful and powerful as both a visual and a concept. I would love for the garden for be there forever. I am petitioning my landlord to be able to create an urban garden in my small plot of dirt near my house.
