I was in San Francisco in mid December, just after passing through Santa Barbara, but I hadn’t uploaded any pictures of the place … mainly because I was lazy and had so many photos to sift through before being able to post. Anyway, I’m dedicating this article to the people back home who mean the world to me.
One very nice AND annoying thing San Francisco has to its name is the number of hills in the city. They also happen to be very steep … To get the following shots, I had to run up one of these hills from Fisherman’s Wharf. It was good exercise but damn was it difficult.
“You are your only limit”
Being on the road for months at a time does take its toll on you. There’s so much to keep you busy, but it is also very simple to slump down and have a day’s rest. Meeting new people every day is a great experience and you learn so much from each and every one of them, but sadly saying goodbye has become too simple a thing. I wish it hadn’t.

“The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it’s only money… they don’t know how to enjoy it, because they have no imagination.” – Alan Watts
I’ve got to give credit to my friend, Mija, for sharing her admiration for jellyfish. Ever since my time in Baltimore, every single aquarium I go to, I look for the jellyfish to try and photograph these exquisite little beings. What puzzles me most about these creatures is their ability to survive despite the fact they do not have a brain … and they’ve been in our waters for a long, long time!

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.” – Ann Landers

Thank you Mum, Dad and Rano for supporting me all these years. I know I’ve been difficult at times, but I hope I’ll make it up to you one day. One day I hope to be to become more than who I am now, more like you: great people. Looking up to greatness is something I’m incredibly proud of and I hope you know that the things you’ve done and who you’ve become are my inspiration and always will be.
All the best.
