Revisiting Angel Eyes

Waking up to another foggy morning, I decided it was time for an updated shot of ol' Angel Eyes - especially because there seems to be so much interest in her this time of year. I first posted pictures of Angel Eyes three years ago on my blog: Her Angel Eyes are Haunted Happy Halloween …

Curb Appeal

It never fails. If I don't have my D90 with me, I'll find something to photograph. A few days ago, I was walking around Bellingham and saw these leaves upon the green-painted curb of a shaded sidewalk. I have a Smart Phone, but it's definitely not in the same league as the fancy iPhones out …

A Picture without a Picture

I've been reading Susan Sontag's essays, "On Photography".   A few pages into the first essay she writes, "Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs."  She refers to snapshots as souvenirs - and that clicked for me, so to speak.  I don't buy souvenirs, I take pictures.
