Pakka Pets are coming! The Pakka Pets are coming!

Okay, so this post has nothing to do with my photography, or photography in general, but if you have fond memories of carrying around one of those key chain  virtual pets as a kid, read on!

A friend of mine recently co-founded a computer software company called Proto Games. Their first project is a game called Pakka Pets. It’s for your iPhone or Android and you get to tend to your pets needs, design their house, explore, and watch them grow!

Proto Games has a Kickstarter page set up to fund the further development of this game, and they need backers! There are just 4 days left in their campaign, with just under 10% of the funding still needed!

Follow this link: to view their Kickstarter page.

Toby says go check it out! (Toby is quite the connoisseur of such things)


December 31st, Day 365, The End.

I made it!

365 days of shooting *something* everyday. I can’t say I would want to sell all those photos taken, but a few of them are worthy.

It’s going to be weird getting up tomorrow and not having to find something to photograph. Hmm. Maybe I’ll do it anyway, this isn’t something a person can go cold turkey on!

Happy New Year everybody. Thanks for sticking it out with me.

Tuesday, December 24th

Got up early today to head over the mountain to Spokane for Christmas. Snoqualmie Pass was both eerie with the absence of traffic and beautifully snowy.

Two early morning sunrises are coming your way!

The first taken from the car as we drove back over the mountains to Seattle once again.

A reward for getting up early was this lovely sky.

Monday, December 30th

The very last Macro Monday! We’ve looked at everything from food to bugs to metal to parts of a car. Sometimes I knew exactly what I was going to challenge you all with, but most of the time it was either a late Sunday night or early Monday morning dash to find something I hadn’t done before!

Though I won’t be working on a 365 project next year (I can’t believe tomorrow is my last day of this one! I almost made it!!) I do hope to keep doing a Macro Monday each week. I got a sweet Macro flash attachment for my camera that I am looking forward to trying out!

Tuesday, December 17th

I made delicious soup tonight. I *may* have made a teensy bit too much, and will be taking it for lunch until Christmas.

Seriously a beautiful day today.

A fun snowy morning today. Saw two Bald Eagles swooping down on the lake for breakfast.

I know you’ve already seen my gingerbread house, but I gave it a new roof.
