March 10 on 10 | Coffee House Hop Part 3

For this month’s 10 on 10 I did another Coffee House Hop in San Francisco with my good friend Suzanne (bonus, it was her birthday).  This was our third trip to the city to explore cute neighborhoods and their amazing coffee houses. First stop….Sightglass.   This is a cool coffee bar and roastery in the…

Trini - Such a great idea to write about your local coffee houses. I love your pictures, they are so inviting. And I kind of fancy a cup of coffee right now :-)


Bonnie - That sounds like a great way to spend the day. Your photos are delightful. And I really want some of those pastries from that patisserie that you stopped at last. Boy, they look good!

Kathleen - I love everything about these images Kristina! Of course they’re beautifully shot, include some of my favorite things (coffee & pastries) and are located in a great city :)

Kim Bajorek - Kristina! I love this idea! I remember the first one, and loved it too! I wonder if Connie, Luca, and I did that here in SD we would find the same charm that exists where you live…:) Love seeing the photos of architecture, food, and I’ve always wanted to try the photo in a photo. Will have to do that some day! Thanks for sharing your lovely experience! <3

Stacey Griffin - Fun! Yum! Great job capturing the cute & fun coffee houses. I may have to do that some day.

Kristina - You should do a coffee house hop. So many great things to photograph (and eat and drink). :)

Kristina - That sounds like a great idea..I’m sure you’d find some cute coffee houses in the SD area.

Kristina - Thanks so much Kathleen. It was a fun day in my favorite city!

Kristina - Thanks so much Trini. We had a great time. :)

Suzanne - You rocked these Kristina! They tell the story of our fun day so beautifully, thanks for being my exploring friend :) xoxo

10 on 10 February | Spring has Sprung

While parts of the country are still experiencing a winter wonderland,  spring has sprung here in California.  The trees are starting to bloom and the temperatures are mild.   As a former Midwesterner, I have to say this is one of the things I love about living on the West Coast. And love happens to…

Bonnie - Those are such beautiful images. I love the lemons. I am looking forward to seeing some Spring outside–it’s a ways off in the Midwest (this morning it is 0 degrees Fahrenheit) but it always comes one way or another . . .

Kim Bajorek - Hi Kristina! Isn’t it crazy how it’s Spring already? I do wish we had a winter, though I do love the flowers everywhere, and you captured them so beautifully! I love your processing on all of these. I’m inspired and may just go out and shoot some flowers myself!

Luciane Steiner - Love the soft tones and the rich colors, I’m seeing lots of blooming in my area too!

Trini - Waow, that was a sight for winter-cold-sore-eyes :-) Thank you. I can almost smell the flowers and spring getting closer. I don´t want to look outside my window right now, but rather look at your images :-)
I am happy to know you take your time and really absorb the beauty of spring, I do too (in a few months)


Laura - Kristina, As always your images are beautiful! I love the magnolia blossoms (they are pink and I love pink!)

Kathleen - It really is Spring here! Lovely images ~ the purple is gorgeous.

Kristina - Welcome to our blog circle. I’m sure it is very chilly in Norway but hopefully spring will be arriving soon and you’ll be outside photographing flowers before you know it. :)

Kristina - Aww thanks so much Laura. It’s crazy to see how early spring has come this year, isn’t it?

Kristina - Thank you Kathleen…yes spring is here so early this year. A far cry from our Midwest days, no?

Kristina - Thank you Luciane and welcome to our blog circle. The blooms seem so early this year but I love it.

Kristina - Thank you Kim. I used some presets from Kim Klassen…I’m really enjoying that online space. :) And yes, it is so crazy to see how early spring has arrived this year.

Kristina - My parents live in IL and my mom said it was 20 below…brrr. Hopefully spring will be arriving for you soon. So glad you are part of this group.

Connie Hanks - Lovely images, Kristina! Such gorgeous tones and composition! Not having much of a winter in California is definitely one of the things I both love AND hate about San Diego! A little winter would be nice, but I guess we can’t be too picky! The purple flower is my favorite – the light, angle, bokeh, processing… it’s all super yummy!

10 on 10 January | Celebrating in the City

What better way to kick off a new year of 10 on 10 posts than a trip to San Francisco to celebrate a dear friend’s milestone birthday?  We had an amazing weekend together eating delicious food, shopping, laughing and celebrating our wonderful, fabulous friend Suzanne. Please be sure to  check out the rest of our…

Kathleen - I love the Chinatown images! You inspire me to travel ~ San Francisco would be an easy weekend destination…

Making time for friends is so important and it looks like you and yours enjoyed this celebration. It would be great to meet you in person sometime!!

Connie Hanks - What a fun trip! Gorgeous street photos – you beautifully captured the energy and vibrance of the city! And the twinkle lights in the palm trees looks so pretty! Happy New Year!

Kim Bajorek - such great photos, Kristina! Love the one of all of you in the window of the restaurant and the seemingly double exposure of the hanging meats with the reflection of the sidewalk and street. Now I’m really wanting to go to San Francisco this year!

Kristina - Thanks Kim! Yes, to a trip to SF. Would love to show you around. :)

Kristina - Happy New Year Connie and thank you so much. We had a ball.

Kristina - I think a 10 on 10 gathering in SF should be added to our wish list for 2015. I would love to do a photo walk with you there in this magical city!

Stacey Griffin - Looks like a fun trip, thanks for sharing the lovely images! :)
