What could be happier than a grown man reliving childhood memories for a moment on a spring day in the park?
I had fun playing around with sepia tone and lomo effects on this, to give it more of a nostalgic air.
One of the nice things about this area is that even though we are so close to the city, we are also so close to the country.
We don’t have to drive very far in any direction before we find roads that meander through the country; past open fields and farms.
In fact, if we wanted to spend only a little more money, we could buy farm fresh eggs, and local beef from nearby farms, and we could have milk from local cows delivered right to our front door!
I met this guy along the Soos Creek Trail, where Isaac and I have gone several times. There is a horse stable right alongside the trail, but this was the first time any of the horses were close enough to the fence for me to photograph them.
I’m curious though, when shooting an animal clearly owned by someone, what I mean is, not a wild animal, should I get a model release form signed?
Oh! Before I forget, yesterday’s riddle! I’m sorry in advance….
Q: “April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?”
Have a good night!
Oh man, I am falling behind! I have photos to go through and post from our visit last week to Nisqually, and our trip to Portland a couple days ago, and now yesterday and today’s photos too!
I couldn’t do it today, though, we had way too happy weather to be cooped up in a dark apartment on the computer!
After our water heater broke and flooded our closet (oh, I didn’t tell you about that? Well, a couple days ago Isaac walked into the bedroom, where I was at my desk on the computer and said “what’s that sound?” and went to the closet to investigate, where his feet got instantly soaked. The water heater had been leaking from the side for apparently some time. What’s especially awesome about this is that our upstairs neighbor had THEIR water heater break about a month ago. When theirs went, the water somehow dripped down into our light fixture and was dripping onto our floor -ONLY OUT OF THE CEILING LIGHT. It felt like the beginning of a horror movie, haha.)
So anyway, after that happened, and we had to move everything out of the closet to dry the carpet, Isaac was struck with the urge to sell his collection of baseball cards rather than stick them back in the closet. We drove out to a specialty collector’s store to find that the owner was out for the day and that we should come back tomorrow.
So there we were, out and about without plans and I said, “this would be a good opportunity for me to take a few photos of you without your big jacket on, what do you say, Isaac?”
He hesitantly obliged me by driving to a nearby park.
I also found my new favorite tree:
I hope to go through today’s photos and post a few more soon!

I have two photo entries for today, both follow the theme of “toy”:
Okay, since I don’t have a cute kid, cat or dog feet available for photographing, and I couldn’t really go to my “goto” model (thanks anyway Isaac, but hairy adult man feet aren’t quite as photogenic somehow…) on this one, I went to my “back-up goto”model!
And again with the black background in the light box. I thought it worked well with this guy since he’s mostly white and it helps the pads on his feet stand out.
As I am still very new to the area, I was out driving today and got a little lost. Luckily I came upon this bridge somewhere in the town of Tukwila. I parked the car and took myself on a little walk, over the bridge, under, and around. It was such a perfect day, I didn’t want to leave! I felt hat if I stayed just a few minutes more, I might see a fresh angle or subject that I had missed before.
The photos speak for themselves!
Thanks for stopping by!
Good Evening! (I can’t help thinking that in a Dracula voice.)
My dad found this site, TED.com, somehow, and recently he told me about it.
“TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.”
To be honest, I didn’t check it out until he sent me a link off of the site at the beginning of this month.
This video is amazing, it’s called “the beauty of pollination” check it out for yourselves!
And then head over to Ted.com to see what else they have to offer!
Breakfast of CHAMPIONS you might say.
Who says being an adult is all bad?
With 6 minutes before the day is officially over, I give you my photo of the day.
fat mum slim asked for “an animal” (though we planned this zoo adventure before I realized this fact.)
Today’s coincidence is brought to you by Seattle’s Woodland Zoo.
So many animals -so many animals I hadn’t even heard of! We saw nearly everything, I think, but because it worked out to be only a dollar for me to get the annual pass to the zoo, I’ll be sure to go back.
This guy was my favorite, he just seemed so human. He moved as if a human were in an orangutan suit, swinging from the branches, building a fort, taking food from the zoo keepers. These animals are so amazing.
Again, I took plenty of photos today, I will post a few more over the next few days.
At first I was looking for interesting splash patterns, but I caught one drop just as it hit the sink bottom, and I realized I had something much more interesting here!
This is entry for photo friday: fleeting
I added some contrast to this photo in Photoshop, and converted it to black and white. I like the grittiness of it.
Here are a couple others:
