Graffiti advice

Hi ho friends. As mentioned in the last post, my camera is calling me but I’ve got a couple more days of study before my CAP exam. I dug into my photo files and found this photo from 2013, which I’d completely forgotten about.  I don’t know who the graffiti artist is, but I like […]

Duck, Turtle, & Koi

In 2004, I celebrated my 40th birthday with friends and family with a day of festivities at the Seattle Arboretum, the Japanese Garden and finished with dinner at the Queen Anne Sam’s Sushi. Today’s photo is one of from the pond at the Japanese Garden. The flowers and critters were out in full force that […]

26 Minutes to Armageddon

Back in 2004, I was working in the South Lake Union area.  Bus commuting from the South Slope of Queen Anne to South Lake Union was ridic (and still is). I won’t go into the silliness of that and leave it as I tried walking to work for a while.  I took the digital camera I […]

Old Brick Building

Back in 2005, I was a techie/designer with Open Circle Theater.  When the theater was located in the Lake Union area. Back then, that neighborhood was a pretty run-down, semi-industrial area.  The biggest draws were Fred Hutch, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the Museum of Wooden Boats. Long before the industrial buildings were knocked down […]

Atomic Laundry

In 2011, I accompanied my mom to Pasco, WA for total knee replacement surgery. Mom was out for a while post-surgery, so I wandered around the neighborhood with my Canon Rebel.  It was a cloudless October morning. Pasco is part of the Tri-Cities area and is near the Hanford Nuclear plant, so there are lots of atomic-themed […]

Hummingbird Nest

Hi ho friends.  I know the posts have been sporadic of late, I’ve been fiddling with the look of this site.  The design upgrade reminded me of a project I’ve had on the back burner for far too long: re-organizing my files. I’ve owned cameras since 1982 and my first digital camera was a gift from Mr. […]

Cherry Blossoms

Hi ho my lovelies. It’s been a while since I made a proper post. I’ve been hunkered down and working on my show in May.  I’m meeting with the gallery owners this Saturday, so I’ll post details of the show early next week. Plants are beginning to bloom around Seattle, so I dug into the archives […]

Another Digital Buddha

I’m still learning about all the Gimp tools and what they do.  To be honest, I’m not making a scientific study of photography, the physics, or stuff like that. I’m just interested in composition and what I like.  I approach photography more like painting, kinda silly, but there it is. I merged a couple of […]

The Adorable Maisie

This is one of my favorite photos of my 42 cm Narae, Maisie.  Dress by me from a convertible dress tutorial, scaled down for dolls. Her face-up is her original 2005 default company face-up (amazing) and pink/blonde JRock wig by Monique.
