This has been on my list for almost five years. Five years! When I lived in San Francisco, I would visit the dahlia garden at the end of every summer, just to photograph them. One year I motivated myself to get up at the crack of dawn and when I arrived at 7AM I was surprised to find at least six other photographers there, complete with tripods and fancy cameras! Apparently I’m not alone in my obsession.
Here are my favorites from the day… I also included some shots of me shooting that my friend Micki took. If you are coming to SF in the summertime, don’t miss the dahlias! They are something miraculous.
