My name is Jaya Bhat and I like to make photographs.

My on and off love affair with photography first became serious a few years ago when I set about documenting the city of San Francisco for the benefit of my two children. I wanted them to have a visual record of the city that they have grown up in, a city which would no doubt change in so many ways by the time they were old enough to get nostalgic. I started with our neighborhood, documenting the stores, restaurants and other favorite places of the city that is our home.   

And of course very soon my horizons broadened to include everywhere I go. Always with camera in hand, and eyes wide open, documenting the world as I see it.

So thank you for visiting and I hope you find something you like while looking at what caught my eye.
