Squirrels | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Have you ever come this close to a squirrel?  My dad played this game with squirrels when we were young and out camping.  He tied a peanut to a string and let it out about 50 feet then waited patiently for the squirrels to come.  Slowly the squirrel approached the bait and a game of […]

Is it fall? | Kirkland, WA photographer

I wonder how will I know when it is fall?  In AZ it went from hot to not so hot and then we knew that Halloween must be over.  : )  The other day the wind picked up and the chills started.  I rushed to grab a cute scarf that I never put to good […]

Views | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Here is a privileged view from downtown Seattle.  A friend of mine (since junior high) has lived here for the last 10 years or so.  We reconnected when I moved here and she invited me to her office to see this!  I was ooohing and ahhhing over such a site.  She gets to look at […]

The road less traveled | AZ Photography

This was another find in AZ.  I was immediately drawn to it due to the condition, texture, and location.  It was tucked behind some old houses and buildings, just past an old bridge-ish looking path.  It seemed ancient and rugged, beaten down. As I sat there at the bottom of those stairs, I wondered what […]

Shutter speed play

San Tan mountain is a beautiful area if you are into the desert-ish kind of stuff.  I have taken my mountain bike out there a few times and hiked around other times.  My most recent visit was about a week ago and I was playing around with shutter speed to enhance drama.  Who doesn’t like […]
