This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is Monochromatic. I found a couple of pictures in my archive to share for this challenge.

We woke up one day last year and decided to go for a drive. We usually catch the ferry in Bremerton and go into Downtown Seattle. That day we decided to drive around the Olympic Peninsula. I can’t remember the name of the beach we stopped at, but it was beautiful.

When I think of connected I think of the Puget Sound. There are islands and peninsulas that need to connect to the mainland. The favorite way to travel to Seattle from anywhere in the Sound is by boat or ferry. For some people these modes of transportation are their only option to get to work. Imagine if all you had to do was walk onto a ferry and enjoy the ride. No one would have a terrible day!

You must Love Football!

Hawks Pride

Yesterday was the last preseason game for the Seahawks. The ferry headed for downtown was riddled with Seahawks fans (and 2 Raiders fans that felt a little out-of-place). This little guy caught my eye as he was running around on the upper deck with his sister. I’m sure he wanted to have this done to his head, because well… it looks pretty cool! But it brings up a question, should we thrust our fandom on our children?


Waves of Angles

This past week’s challenge on The Daily Post was “Angles”. These waves are outside the fish ladder at the Ballard Locks.


Summer Fun

A great day to be frolicking in the water. It makes it hard to find a parking spot near the library but who can complain when this is the result.

My daughter’s latest work. She is an amazing artist.




I experienced a sense of triumph when I was able to shoot this dandelion fluff before my youngest snatched it up.
