2018 Photo Review – Final

2018 Photo Review – Final

Thanks to anyone who made it this far! I was putting this together and began to second-guess some of my choices, but in the end I felt it best to just leave it alone. My cousin, Ed, had been disappointed that he couldn’t view the photos as a slideshow, so I’m going to put a gallery together of the 2018 photos for anyone interested in seeing them all together. I hadn’t taken a vacation in quite some time, but by…

2018 Photo Review – part two

Sequim plays host to the Sequim Lavender Festival in July and though I once again avoided the crowds during the festival weekend, I managed to visit a few farms before the festival to photograph the lavender fields.

We flew from Portland to Phoenix, rented a car and immediately hit the road for the Grand Canyon, where we would be staying…

The Faces Of Rialto Beach

The kid in “The Sixth Sense” said, “I see dead people.” As for me, I see faces…and animals, angels, demons and characters from movies and comic books. It’s been that way for as long as I can remember. Whether it’s clouds, grain and knots on a wooden fence or paint splatters on the floor – I’ll find something. My theory as to why that happens is that it’s a combination of a very active imagination and the mind’s desire to…
