Let There Be Light!

Well, what do you know?  The sun does come out in the Pacific Northwest!  It decided to emerge for an entire weekend.  This was nice, considering it was Dirty Dan Days in Fairhaven, where I got several shots of some performers this afternoon and enjoyed the Chuckanut Chowder Cook-off.  After leaving Fairhaven, I took a walk by the marina for …

The Grinch!

I thought this picture was lost for good after my old laptop crashed.   But, there it was tonight in my "Best of Nikon" folder!  Apparently I'd transferred it over to my new laptop at some point and forgot about it. I captured the Grinch last Christmas when I was out taking pictures with my Nikon.    New …

Visit Tony’s Coffee House!

I've stated often throughout my blog that I love living in Bellingham.  Most of my spare time (when not out on a photowalk) is spent in Fairhaven at places like Tony's Coffee House, Harris Avenue Cafe, Village Books, Abbey Garden Tea Room, and a long list of other favorites.  I've noticed that in many of …
