Money | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Why in the world did I take this picture?  ha!  Well, maybe I needed an extra $20 and spotted her loose fingers???  This gal was in line for a huge bowl of fried calories and it was going to be good.  I’m sure it was well worth that money in her little fingers.  Everything costs […]

Bits and pieces | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Somebody tried this apple, didn’t like the apple, and tossed the apple (and it wasn’t me).  I had to laugh because it could have been me-I would have done this.  The apple didn’t look very good and I am surprised anybody would have tasted it to begin with.  Any how I think of all my […]

One of many | Seattle, WA Photography

I love what Zack Arias says in his blog.  He is often up front, honest, and so real-life.  He is humble and talented.  His posts are about stuff that everyone thinks about.. he puts words to those thoughts.   He talks about photographs vs. photography, oversaturated markets, his humble start (and failures) and so much more.  […]

Monitor calibration | Kirkland, WA Photographer

Have you ever heard about calibrating your monitor?  This is little me playing softball (or pretending to ) when I was a wee one.  I scanned this picture in and when I saw it my first thought was about calibrating my monitor.  I worked on making it look somewhat “normal” or correct and then wondered […]

Summertime | Kirkland, WA Photographer

What do feet have to do with summertime?  Well, thank you for asking!  To me, bare feet represent the essence of childhood and summertime.  I remember running around with no shoes, even to Circle K for treats after getting leaves out of my neighbors pool (Thanks for that by the way!).  The dirt, the grime, […]
