Alfonso at Puerto Alegre

Alfonso

Carnaval in San Francisco was last Sunday, and whenever I’m there to make photographs, I always stop by the Puerto Alegre Bar on Bryant/25th and say hello to Alfonso.

Coming to the US from Jalisco, Mexico more than 40 years ago, Alfonso opened the Puerto Alegre five years later.

Yesterday I stopped by with photo bud Fernando, had a couple of Negra Modelos, bs’d about a company we both worked at many years ago, and made a portrait of Alfonso. Puerto Alegre is old school and a great place to hang out.

Oh noes, I may have disturbed the scene!

Two in the alley

Yeah, the woman further back may have noticed me at the moment I released the shutter.  For some street photographers, taking such a picture and then putting it out there and holding it up as a street photograph would be a cardinal sin, as the “scene was disturbed”  and therefore not “candid.” Nonsense.

For a few that subscribe to that belief, the “not disturbing the scene” mantra appears to be code for not being comfortable around people for fear of being detected and subsequently challenged. What’s amazing are the strong negative views held against those that feel otherwise, or want to consider new ideas, questioning rigid notions of the past. That’s sad.  I’m chewing on those beliefs a bit and will soon have more to say.

Born and raised in San Francisco

Al

It’s been awhile since I last made a portrait of a stranger I encountered on the street. With that in mind, I was pleased that Al was a good sport and let me make a few photos of him on Mission Street, near 15th. As the title suggests, Al was born and raised in San Francisco. Next time I see him I’ll hit him up for a few stories.

Bridge Light

This photo was snapped through my Amtrak window cruising past Benicia over the Delta.  Lately I’ve been making a lot of photos that way.

Also, this photo and the previous eight were made with a new camera I’ve been trying out – the Fuji X-A1. Really digging it…

Valentine

Hope your Valentine’s Day was nice.  I’m sure whoever received the enormous balloon and roses from the guy up above had a wonderful one!  Snapped yesterday on BART, in San Francisco.  I think he would have been happy with another four or five inches of ceiling height!
