    One of our favorite times to shoot is the hours following a rain storm. The average pool of water in the street becomes a canvas for a stunning reflection photo, and the hazy sunlight peeking through the clouds promises some unique lighting!

    Project Update #9: Bhautik Joshi: Street Art Photographer:

    When I moved to San Francisco, I was impressed by the amount of art in the city - I spend many weekends exploring new corners of the city to find it. Downtown, right at the center of things, it’s staggering to see the amount of art that has been commissioned by the city and individuals. All the way from bold architecture to abstract, often large sculptures, these pieces leave a strong impression that accessible art is of great importance here.
    ArtAround, an interactive mobile app for exploring the street art of San Francisco, just posted a really cool update where a well-known street art photographer breaks down his favorite pieces from the city streets. Check it out.

It was fifty years ago today that Bob Dylan had his first recording session at Columbia Records. Dylan was backup harmonica for folk singer Caroline Hester — It was shortly after that Dylan was offered his own deal with Columbia.
