About VFCH


I had always wanted to learn photography and when we moved to this beautiful San Francisco neighborhood I decided that I couldn’t wait any longer. I bought a better camera, learnt the basics, and started capturing the changing views of the Bay from our balcony in Clarendon Heights.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy it.

    Hey Ana, thanks for liking my blog about Poland. Like you I have a great interest in photography and as I travelled between 2002 and 2009, my cameras got better and, surprise, surprise, so did my photographs. If you are still with me when I reach the Pacific Islands I hope you enjoy those photos especially.
    Take care

    Hola Ana, te he descubierto por los tacones de olivia, el blog de Nuria Roca. Que maravilla de fotos! Yo vivo en portland, oregon.
    Mucha suerte con tus fotos y sigue asi…me encanta SF!

    • March 10, 2013 8:10 am

      Gracias por pasarte Ruth. Me encanta que pase por aquí gente de España porque no ocurre muy a menudo (bueno, que igual no eres de España).
      Nosotros tenemos un viaje pendiente a Portland. Tenemos allí unos amigos y todo el mundo habla muy bien de la ciudad. Espero que la vida te vaya genial por allí. Saludos desde San Francisco.

        Soy, soy espaniola! De zaragoza! Portland es chulisimo, muy dinamico, pero no tan escenico como SF! Y claro, aqui llueve a todas horas…nosotros no vamos a ver a familia y amigos, primero LA y luego SF.
        Vivimos ahi hace 10 anios en San Jose. Espero que sigas con tus fotos, que son preciosas y q disfrutes de SF al maximo! Muchos besos Ana

    Hola guapa!! Ya sé que me sigues a través de wordpress y te dejo este comentario aquí pues no he conseguido encontrar tu dirección de mail para hacerlo de manera privada. Debido al cambio de blog y traslado de servidor que estoy realizando, a partir del lunes 27 dejarás de seguir mi blog. Si te apetece seguirlo de nuevo, tendrás que venir al nuevo y volver a clicar para hacerte seguidor! Ainsss siento las molestias pero no consigo salvar los seguidores que tengo a través de WordPress!
    Espero seguir viéndote por mi blog y que te guste mi nuevo look! Recuerda, lunes 27 de enero!!

  45. May 1, 2014 10:19 pm

    Hola Ana!!! Soy Kate….de El café de Kate. Tengo el blog abandonado. Más que abandonado cerrado, pero me ha hecho mucha ilusión tu comentario. Me alegro que te gustara mi blog, justo ahora acabo de empezar otro que espero sea el definitivo. Yo no he podido comprobar que tengamos muchas cosas en común porque no he visto tu blog, he decidido comentarte enseguida, pero a partir de hoy te sigo. Trabajas de psicóloga?? Saludos: te dejo el enlace.:
