What is Your Biggest Inspiration?


We're now in the month of April. The rain has stopped in San Francisco and Bay Area. We had some clear skies with beautiful clouds. I asked myself, What is my Biggest Inspiration?

My biggest inspiration is to always be at the pulse of the city I love so much - San Francisco. It is what keeps me alive, young and energetic! 

Really, the true nuts and bolts is I want to own property in San Francisco. I want to be part of this city just like Jack London, Herb Caen, Isadora Duncan or Ansel Adams are known for their work besides being born in San Francisco. (Herb Caen was born in Sacramento, he's still okay)

Bottom line: My inspiration is to continue to write, blog, shoot photography, and help my community and city at large. 

What is your biggest inspiration?

Wow, February 2014 is in full swing. Time sure does fly when you're a busy butterfly, living in the city of San Francisco and involved in various awesome activities, groups and social gatherings. Yup, that is moi! 

Happy New Year my friends. It's been two months since my last post. I know, it's not good. (according to social media platforms) I am big on the social media, but to write a blog post, I like to put more time and thought in what I really want to say and share to the world. 

I do Tweet and manage two accounts: @sfmovingroovin and @DogpatchStFest. Check them out if you want to know what's going on in the city, communities, events and other news worthy material that I like to share. I do have a Tumblr page, Instagram account and google.com/+vanessaaquino for Google+. I think I have covered just about the main social media engines. I do use Facebook, but find myself using it a little less, maybe. 

With the holiday rush, 49ers game, a tour of the Candlestick Park, events with Google+, Dogpatch Neighborhood Association meetings, Yosemite Landscape Photography Trip, a couple of Warriors game, I, literally haven't had a moment to share my thoughts or better yet, to sit quietly and write. I do miss writing and do think about it almost daily. I really like to have fun and love people more so than ever. I love building relationships, staying active and involved in things that matter to me. I believe all the above is what keeps me happy, young and energetic. 

Aren't we all suppose to do things we love to remain happy and have fun while at it? 

I really love life. I find myself doing a variety of things because I CAN. I would like to show you with pictures instead of more writing (for now). May your 2014 year be full of sunshine, fun and love.

Agnes Varda in the Bay Area!

Oh my, for those of you who enjoy all types of films, here's one for you.  Agnes Varda, the classic French New Wave filmmaker will be here in Berkeley at the BAM/PFA - Film Programs this upcoming Monday. 

Have you ever seen "Cléo de 5 à 7"?  I enjoyed this classic piece all shot in the streets of Paris! Talk about raw filmmaking, Agnes Varda was ahead of her artistic views. 



"Cleo de 5 a 7" is a must if you haven't seen it. This is all shot in black and white and the film is digitally restored! I unfortunately have an early Thanksgiving out of town and won't make it but I HIGHLY recommend this for all you artists! This film will inspire you.

Cheers,
~vanessa

From the Archives: "Not Just Another Love Story"

a San Francisco Poem 

written by vanessa ross aquino/dated July 2009





Not Just Another Love Story

Sunshine in my life
As soon as I see San Francisco Bay

Driving on the Bay Bridge
City Skyline
TransAmerica Pyramid
555 California Building
Coit Tower
The Embarcadero Buildings
In the background 
curvaceous hills stands
Sutro Tower on Twin Peaks

The city 
lights up my life
So beautiful and breathtaking
I can write a song
one can see over the hills on the west
fog blankets over Twin Peaks
rolls over Noe Valley 
never reaching Potrero Hill 
where the sun is at its best

The hands that built this city
where are they today?
to thank, appreciate them for all they’ve done 
to this city

Good Lord 
The city is alluring 
You got something I like 
glisten and shine
The New Millennium Tower
The St. Regis Building
The Westfield Mall
Mt. Davidson just south of Twin Peaks

Window rolled down, wind blowing in my face
as the sun shines
and sets over the pacific coast
twilight shimmers throughout the city
sunset reflections off the window from many different buildings
City Hall
Palace Of Fine Arts
The Ferry Building

Day or Night
I hear the busy streets, can you hear the busy streets?
music blasting out of a passing car
“l-o-w  r-i-d-e-r, t-a-k-e  i-t  l-t-t-l-e  h-i-g-h-e-r”
The F-Line Trolley on Market Street
the click-clack of a woman’s heel running for the bus and out of time
A latino stands at the train station
to give you a free Examiner newspaper

I see Coit Tower standing strong and proud
across the way the beautiful Historic Ferry Building
It’s Saturday morning
busy with people shopping at the famous Farmer’s Market
Tomatoes, flowers, wine, cheese and the aroma of coffee lingers

and sometimes tea

Day or Night
this is my home 
This city is sassy
This city has something I like
It brings me sunshine in my life
I can write a book 
and if I could
I would wrap my arms around this city

Farewell Candlestick Season 2013 49ers vs. Packers

San Francisco, California

With less than 25 seconds left on the clock, I'm happy with today's game. 49ers 34 Packers 28

NFL Football is here. I am super excited about this season in hopes 49ers make it back again to the SuperBowl, but this time win it. 

49ers play the Greenbay Packers in Game 1 as we say #FarewellCandlestick Park. I plan to photograph 49er home games in and around the city.  I was up early and went out to photograph anything I found 49er. Since I live in Dogpatch, I walked half way down on Third Street to Evans. Hopped on the T Train towards Visitation Valley.

Here are some photos. Enjoy. Go Niners!
