Hi and Welcome!
I started this blog over two years ago, the first time I attempted a 365 project. I have since successfully completed a 365 (the second time I attempted it), and gone on to..well, not take photos for a while! Oops!
I am a photographer/baker/reader/hiker/former park ranger now living in Kent, Washington, and working for the library system, which is great fun.
I moved here from Sourthern Oregon, and have enjoyed exploring the Puget Sound area. We’ve been here over two years and we still haven’t seen all that there is see here!
I have been taking photos for about 12 years, beginning in my high school’s darkroom where I learned to process black and white prints.
I find myself shooting a lot of macro; the close-ups of both nature and man-made stuff is what most interests me. If you follow me on Facebook you can make guesses on my the weekly “Macro Monday” photo!
The purpose of this blog was two-fold, to get me to actually take a photo a day, as mentioned above, , and be accountable to SOMEONE for it, and also for me to see if photography might be something I would consider doing for a career.
I also love baking. Pie is my specialty, though I have been trying some different bread doughs and cookie recipes lately. I am blogging and working on a 365 photo project to figure out if I like photography or baking better. Or maybe there is a way to combine the two?
Do you have a recipe you think I should try? PLEASE drop me a line.
UPDATE: Ultimately, I don’t see photography being a lucrative job choice for me. If I had more interest in photographing people it might be, but I think in the end this will prove to be just a hobby that I find to be a relaxing way to spend time alone.
