More Food Play, and an iPhone Fragment

Here’s another food play image, constructed from olive oil, half-and-half (milk), and food color. I think it looks a little like stained glass.

Transferring a high resolution image onto my iPhone allows me to use all the creative iPhone apps on an image generated by a “big boy” camera. This one (below) is a San Francisco Reflection, photographed with my D850 and modified with the Fragment app on my iPhone.

Both images were a hecka lotta fun to make. That’s what it is all about to some extent: holding on to “beginner’s mind,” having a fun sense of play, and staying creative!

Say Yes, Figure It Out Later. Starting from the Start with Tyler Babin

Chase Jarvis Photography Chase

“It’s impossible to move forward while staying the same”. That’s what motivated Tyler Babin, a 25 year old up & coming filmmaker, who hustled his way into his dream job only to leave it to pursue the riskier thing, an even bigger bet – on himself. I’ve had literally hundreds of requests over the years to have someone on the show who isn’t Richard Branson or Brene Brown or {fill in the blank star}…ie. host someone who hasn’t “made it big” and is, instead, on the come-up themselves…someone from within our very own community who has been listening for years, connecting dots, gleaning knowledge and is now taking major action on that.  Well THIS is Tyler’s story. If you’ve  followed my pal Gary Vaynerchuk, it’s likely you’ve actually seen some of Tyler’s work. For the last 3-4 years, he’s been a whirlwind tour traveling the world with Gary, shooting photo + video, creative directing projects at Vayner… and it all started right here on this show nearly 8 years ago.  This episode goes full circle, friends. Also – instead of the usual studio conversation, Tyler and I recorded the show while grabbing a burger & margarita just around the corner […]

San Francisco Reflections

Harold Davis Harold Davis

Wandering with a friend in downtown San Francisco last week, I was struck by all the new construction, and how much things have changed. Over the past half-dozen years I have mostly wandered more exotic paths—Son Doong Cave in Vietnam, the Kumano kodo in Japan, the Camino de Santiago, and more—and have seldom set foot in San Francisco.

The place has changed, almost beyond recognition. What struck me most in the area around Salesforce Tower is all the modern, reflective windows, which sometimes provide echoes of a distant and almost forgotten past, now alienated and completely separate from the present.

At the conclusion of our walk, we headed across the top of the Broadway Tunnel to Chinatown, which in contrast to the slicker downtown seems pretty much as it always was, a bustling enclave of tourists and Chinese-Americans doing their thing.

Here’s a “sort of take the photographer’s life in his hands” fisheye of the eastern mouth of the tunnel. You can see the light trail of a vehicle that was too close and too fast on the right of my position, and my companion as a kind of “ghost” on the left hand side of the image.
