Waterfront Art

From the trail above the rocky beach, you'd almost miss it.   Someone spent a lot of time transforming this small section of the waterfront into a work of art.   There were so many fun details, I wasn't even sure what to focus on.

Shipwrecked II

Can you believe there were two shipwrecked boats on the same beach?  Well there were, and I was a little surprised considering this is Bellingham.   I wasn't even going to log on to my computer tonight to post, but then decided to visit Adorama.com to order the Nikon 18mm - 200mm f/3.5-5.6 I've been wanting …

Shipwrecked

I've been reading Steve McCurry's Blog lately, and it's forced me to rethink what I want to accomplish with my photography.  I know we can't all travel the world and evoke complex emotions with each shutter actuation, but I'd like to think I'm shooting with purpose.  When I got my first point and shoot, and …

Shy

As I was finishing my photo walk on Sunday, I spotted these local photographers on the beach.  I loved the way the light was filtering through the umbrella, but they closed it up before I could get a shot I liked.  So, I approached them and asked if they'd open it again.  You'd have thought …

Checking In

I stepped away from the dyslexic chaos I know as logarithms just before all of my grey matter unfolded this afternoon.   It's a good thing, because I need it for my Monday night exam.  What?  I promised not to talk about Algebra anymore?  Oh, yes....my apologies. I did treat myself to a photo walk this afternoon to …

Snow Bird

Birds love me so much, that they even leave snow replicas of themselves for me to find.  Ha!   That being said, I dedicate this post to my bird-loving friend David who, until recently, has had trouble capturing live subjects.

Fun with Nikon

Bitterly cold winds blew through Whatcom County a couple of days ago...but no snow.  Meteorologists promised, and for a while some flurries got my hopes up...but there was no snow.   I had been hoping to take pictures with my new Nikon D90. 30 minutes south in Skagit County, however, so much snow fell that a stretch of …

Cameras and Shoes

This is one of the last images I had taken with David's Canon 40d.   I reluctantly returned it to him yesterday after having used it since August.  But, I didn't hang my head for long because my new NIKON D90 arrived later in the afternoon!!   I spent hours reading the owner's manual and then playing with all of the unfamiliar buttons …
