Fruit and cheese platter.

I’ve been searching for a low-cost fruit, cheese, and coffee experience in the Castro.

This is the closest thing so far. Delicious, sumptuous, but unfortunately not low cost. The small is big enough for two, if you have a willing coffee companion.

But, You’re Not Gay, Are You? SF Pride 2012

Youre not gay are you pride 2012 26431711_324945921325726_5713852386963881984_n

This gorgeous man was walking arm-in-arm with an attractive lady friend at gay pride 2012.

There were several other women with them, so I asked the entire group if they would pose for a snapshot.

The women were delighted, and quite rambunctious if not inebriated.

After about a dozen shots, I summoned the nerve to ask “the handsome man” for a few more shots by himself.

Only briefly hesitant, he stepped right up to the challenge, his rowdy posse cheering him on.

He put his hat and sunglasses on, but I guess that wasn’t what I was focusing on.

This image is heavily altered. I had almost as much fun manipulating it as when I originally took the photo.

You can see the original unaltered version, and hundreds more like him in my virtual gallery:

Half A Dozen YouTube Videos Refreshed

YouTube Is Fabulous

Isn’t YouTube wonderful? You can find obscure, creepy things like car crashes, or wildly, crazy popular viral videos from YouTube megastars like 16 year old Fred Figgelhorn.

I like it because it’s a great showcase for my photography and video adventures. I’m on a mission to jump start my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/photojimsf.

You Can Learn Anything On YouTube

Just from watching tutorials, YouTube has taught me how to make my videos more interesting and watchable with nice thumbnails, editing, adding free music, adding fan funding calls to action, and some SEO tips and tricks in the description section.

My strategy is to take turns alternating between my most and least popular videos, applying what I’ve learned. There’s over 200 videos on my channel to update, here’s the first six. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed making!
