Happy Halloween!

Designed exclusively by Himself, carved with help from Daddy. Flash photo taken without a tripod, and a long exposure - cool effect IMO.

All the October Flowers

The colors of this teeny tiny little flower were so vivid and eye catching, I couldn't get enough of them.

Gorgeous! Look at the colors of Late October...

Walking around in the warm sun last weekend I found so many beautiful flowers! After 17 years in the Pacific NW, I am still amazed at how you can find color and flowers during every single season. I'll post several more over the next several days. Enjoy.

Art as Photo - Photo as Art

This is an amazing drawing! Its So Cool! I feel like I should keep it for when Himself becomes a world famous artist, and MOMA is calling me asking me for early works for a retrospective of his lifes work.


This is cool art by Himself.
And I'm sharing it with you.

Creepy Crawly.... Seriously

As I struggled to keep my footing whilst clambering around in someones front yard (feeling very self-concious for trespassing!) and trying to focus it suddenly occured to me. If this spider fell or moved or jumped at me, I'd probably break my camera trying to get away. Was it really going to be an $800 photo? No, not really. But I've been trying to get photos of spiders for weeks now, this one turned out pretty good.

It was such a beautiful day today. What a treat!

From the Mouths of Babes

With a 2 yr old you know how often you have to repeat yourself, and prompt until they give the right answer and learn to use their good manners. It pays off in about 20 years or so - heh-heh.

So this afternoon Herself asks for help opening a bottle of juice, and we remind her "How do you ask nicely" To which she replied, "Help please". Then I opened the bottle, handed it back to her and when she didn't say thank you, I prompted her "And what do you say?" To which she replied "Yum, this is pretty good".

(This photo of the baby in the box was inspired by one of my favorite photographers.)

Random Weirdness About Me

I "tip" my candy corn before I eat it.
Yellow and Orang I eat, the other I throw away. And the more I eat them this way, the less I can stand the white part. Someone else eats those or they go in the garbage

Twinkle Twinkle Little White Star Flower

A nice summery image. Ah summer.... you seem so long ago.

A Mountain, A Mountain in the Pacific Northwest - Imagine that!

Actually I think its more about the evergreens maybe. Still, it was a really nice day on a hike.

Purple or Violet? The Color or the Flower?

Reminds me of summer. Ah summer. Its 43 degrees out right now. It'll stay that way until June of next year. BTW - right now Himself and Herself are jumping on the bed listening to the Pixies. Awesome.

Oh The Colors We'll Go - Oh The Textures We'll Go

I posted some pictures of Hydrangeas during the summer. This is what they looked like about 2 weeks ago. I love how washed out they look. And the texture looks almost soft somehow. Anyway, I like this photo.

Trouble At The Old Mill

This photo is strangely flat. The actual area is rather deep - probably from the chimneys in the forefront to the walls at the back of the photo is maybe 30 feet or more? Anyway, the trouble is from those young hooligans and their want to graffitti. hmmm, how do you spell graffiti? Hope thats right.

More Introspection

Not really, it just looks that way. My son.

Like a Bridge Over Narrow Water

I went for a walk, and found what used to be a park is now a DOT staging area, closed to the public (no trespassing). But I went anyway, walked around, found some cool views. Sadly I brought the wrong lens but managed to get a few good shots I hope. I'll go back again another day. It was noisy between the two 4 lane freeway bridges.

Red Stripes Making Me Cry

WTF is it with me today? Is it the weather? The short days? The rain? I'm not PMSing. I thought maybe I had low blood sugar because sometimes I get that way when I don't eat, but I just finished dinner. And its not the beer because I've only had about half of one this evening. Not sure what it is but today's photo was picked because when I looked at my choices, this one made me well up. I cried watching a man on video do a happy dance today. And this week I've had two rather HUGE pieces of good news. soooo..... Something somewhere is up with me. Anyway, here is another summer photo. mmm... too many Me posts.

Something I Saw At The School

Sometimes I just like old deadness of it all. In plants that is.

Found on the Waterfront

Found this sticking out of a beam, quite old and rotting, however the iron ring is stuck in there very solid.

This Is Not A Photo

Watch this.

Photo later.
