Day for Night @ The Refuge

Hi ho, art friends.  Today is my last day of medial leave after my 2nd total knee replacement.  Twelve months of physical therapy and knowing more about the healing process means that I’m recovering much more quickly.  I’m using my cane less and less around the house, but I’m still moving quite slowly.  Let’s not […]

Duck, Turtle, & Koi

In 2004, I celebrated my 40th birthday with friends and family with a day of festivities at the Seattle Arboretum, the Japanese Garden and finished with dinner at the Queen Anne Sam’s Sushi. Today’s photo is one of from the pond at the Japanese Garden. The flowers and critters were out in full force that […]

26 Minutes to Armageddon

Back in 2004, I was working in the South Lake Union area.  Bus commuting from the South Slope of Queen Anne to South Lake Union was ridic (and still is). I won’t go into the silliness of that and leave it as I tried walking to work for a while.  I took the digital camera I […]

Old Brick Building

Back in 2005, I was a techie/designer with Open Circle Theater.  When the theater was located in the Lake Union area. Back then, that neighborhood was a pretty run-down, semi-industrial area.  The biggest draws were Fred Hutch, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the Museum of Wooden Boats. Long before the industrial buildings were knocked down […]

Atomic Laundry

In 2011, I accompanied my mom to Pasco, WA for total knee replacement surgery. Mom was out for a while post-surgery, so I wandered around the neighborhood with my Canon Rebel.  It was a cloudless October morning. Pasco is part of the Tri-Cities area and is near the Hanford Nuclear plant, so there are lots of atomic-themed […]

Hummingbird Nest

Hi ho friends.  I know the posts have been sporadic of late, I’ve been fiddling with the look of this site.  The design upgrade reminded me of a project I’ve had on the back burner for far too long: re-organizing my files. I’ve owned cameras since 1982 and my first digital camera was a gift from Mr. […]

Women’s March 2017

Hi Ho friends.  I admire people who protest, but it’s not for me.  I have a severe aversion to crowds.  Today’s protest in Seattle had over 120,000 women.  I may be too freaked out by crowds to march, but I still want to show my support and voice my opinion, so I created this gal, […]
