Today a friend and I hiked to Barclay Lake. It’s one of my favorite hikes, but I was pretty disappointed by the amount of fog. I still got a few photos, but these fungi were my favorites.
I had the privilege of watching this momma and her babies swim up to and then get on the log. Soooo cute!
In honor of summer I thought I would share some photos of the flowers growing in my yard. Luckily none of them require much care because I definitely don’t have a green thumb. Flowers (Butterfly Bush, Daisy, Day Lily, Hydrangea, Periwinkle, and a couple others) Vegetable (Onion Gone to Seed) Weeds (Still Pretty)
It’s a good thing I didn’t set any rules for my Photos of the Week challenge. This week I want to share a photo and a video I took of a storm that moved in suddenly on Saturday. I know plenty of people think it rains a lot here and that it rains all of […]
I almost blew my Photos of the Week goal. This is the first week all year that I didn’t take a single photo using my Nikon. Luckily I took some cell phone photos and this one might be worth sharing. I was feeling a bit disappointed to be returning to Seattle after a quick weekend visiting […]
The big news this weekend was the Super Moon. Well, the Super Moon wasn’t so super. It was beautiful, but because it was so dark the photos were not worthy.

Here’s is another installment from my travel photography course at Matador U. This time the assignment is practicing with ISO. I’ll be honest. I don’t mess with ISO much. I often forget to adjust it and if I have a tripod on hand I don’t find many opportunities to change ISO. Today I have an […]
Actually taxidermy probably speaks anti Earth Week, but let me explain. Wednesday night I signed in to Twitter and found out that the #FriFotos theme was Earth Week, which starts Sunday. I was stumped. A few thoughts crossed my mind, but nothing excited me. I thought about taking photos of an old globe I had, […]
I didn’t go hiking this weekend, unless you count another failed attempt to get a sunrise photos, but I did run into the office to get a file and that turned into quite an adventure. It started out nearly disastrous. I’ll never go into the office without my cell phone and I’ll never use the elevator on […]
As I mentioned in this week’s Photos of the Week post, I attempted to capture the sunrise again in Snohomish, Washington. Although the fog, decided that was not going to happen, I still want to share my photos and some information about the Bob Herman Wildlife Park at Thomas’ Eddy. I’m told this park has […]
