A Year of Sundays--Eastern Washington

This week I'm visiting my friend Galen in Seattle, and as part of our weekend plans we headed out to her parents house in Plain on the Wenatchee River. A lovely quiet way to spend some time. Here is my pick for my Sunday photo, a stone bench in the trees by the river.


A couple of additional photos of the house and yard.


And, as usual with Galen, we do some outdoor activity that is more than intended or planned. We headed out for a short hike (maybe 3/4 mile "mostly flat") to Hidden Lake in the Wenatchee Forest. She was fairly accurate in that description, but it was a bit more uphill than "mostly flat". But that didn't end up being enough, so we decided to wander around the lake, and as we kept going we decided we might as well go all the way around, because going forward was a better option than going back. The route around was not a well maintained trail and had several downed trees we had to climb over or under, as well as cross a couple streams. It was a nice scramble, rather than walk, but I'm glad we did it.

Here are a few photos from that activity.





Lastly, this image is from Saturday, but I wanted to share the full of water and beautiful Snoqualamie Falls.

Monthly Themes: May--Street Photography

This month's theme is street photography, and while my selection may not seem like it fits the definition of street photography because it is not outdoors or on a street. But it does fit this definition from Eric Kim in that it's candid and it's in a public place: http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2013/08/07/what-is-street-photography-2/.

I also appreciate his final point: "Definitions, shmefinitions... I recommend giving the middle finger to definitions--and not worrying about it. Who cares what people classify your type of photography to be? As long as you enjoy the photos you are taking--isn't that enough?"

This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they…

A Moment in Time Repeat: Midnight

Molly, Sarah and I are back at it with a yearly photo challenge, and repeating a favorite from a few years ago. We'll be taking a photo at every hour of the day (two/month) starting at Midnight. Also joining us this time is Katie and my Mom. Looking forward to seeing all the different views around the state and world as Sarah travels.

Here's my midnight photo, at the Alameda Navy Base, one of my favorite old buildings sitting on the bay, and all lit up at night.




A Moment in Time Repeat: 3 AM

Sticking with the noir theme that goes so well with these very late/early time periods, I headed back to the Naval Base and found this nicely lite inset door.
