Hi there. I'm Derek Powazek. I live in San Francisco. I have a wife, two dogs, and a ton of plants, and I take photos of them all. But mostly the plants.

Lately I'm posting a lot of photos of plants in my ongoing botanical self-education. Some of them are plants I own, and some are things I see out in the world. I don't always know the exact names of the plants, and if you do, I'd be thrilled if you'd share - just leave a comment.

If you're not into plants, you may not care much for my photos anymore, and that's okay, too.

    "Derek was an integral part of one of the most beautiful nights (and weeks) of my life on the playa in 2002, and has been dear to my heart ever since. He's passionate, talented, sensitive, and beautiful in and out. I adore this man!"
