gourd de rigueur

All blogs I've seen today seem to feature some sort of photo of a pumpkin; here's one I shot in Central Washington on my way back from Idaho a few weeks ago. So There.


There are everyday terrors all around us. Do we need Halloween to remind us?

Always Rains, Never Bores

Saw some stunning skies as I bussed back from work tonight. Got a shot while still on the bus (of our Extraordinarily Expensive Baseball Stadium) then jumped off at the earliest bus stop in Seattle and rushed toward the waterfront to try to capture it. Snapped a few along the way. By the time I got to the piers, though, the sunset was fading fast. But I still loved the dinosaur-like silhouettes I got.

Autumn in Idaho

Another shot while on the road for the Idaho trip.


While strolling in Seattle's Volunteer Park and shooting some candids of Chris, I snapped this photo of the fall foliage. I love the organic shapes of trees.

Deep Breaths

The unfortunate hallmark of my old hometown is Potlatch Industries, a former lumber mill and now a paper mill. I recall a newspaper article in the 80s reporting it belched out 280 tons of chloroform in one year alone, giving a new meaning to the term Sleepy Little Town. It explains a lot. I snapped this just as I was driving out of town last week.

Right Lane

"Why did you come back from Idaho so quickly?" I have been asked.

You Can Go Home Again

Had to take a quick two-day road trip back to Idaho to take care of some of the last burial business for my parents' ashes. Just got back today. Snapped a few pics on the way, will post soon.

Three Sides

A strangely ironic grouping on a local 3-way billboard.

Favorite Places

Over the weekend I accompanied my good friend Anil on a birthday pilgrimage south of Seattle to the First Church of Scandinavian Design to buy him a bed. On the way home, we decided, as it was his birthday, to stop at our favorite places. We got me fries and him chocolate. We revelled in our shame.
