I have been a photographer since childhood. My passion ignited on a 50 mile hike in the Sierra as a boy scout. My compact instamatic camera got a workout. Shortly after, I graduated to an SLR camera. I wore my first SLR, a Praktica, around my neck for almost all my senior year in high school.

“Neon sign and street lamp with Christmas decoration. On the street in South San Francisco.”

 

Something unexpected happened when I went to take this image. My intention was to capture a nighttime shot of this neon sign and the historic street lamp with the lighted Christmas wreath decoration. The added bonus was the ethereal naked branches of the tree nearby, lit by the red neon light. As the famous PBS painter, Bob Ross, used to say: "A happy accident.
