Make it Strong

Where did July go? Did I miss it? I had the opportunity to review my recent photos yesterday and found I only had a camera in my hands for three days of the 31 in July. Poor!

Oh well, August promises to be quite productive.

Happy Birthday Bro.

Saturday saw Liddy and I in the company of a bunch of Tacoma Photographic Society Photo Nuts.

We all hopped on the Link Light Rail at Angle Lake Station and rode up to Westlake where we spent the morning on the street.†

Last week Liddy and I made a quick run south to Mt. Saint Helens. The weather forcast promised sun with clouds. It had the potential for a stellar sunset. Nothing ventured, nothing gained they say.

We stopped in Olympia for a sandwich and to fillup the Prius. While there, I checked the Volcano Cam. The camera was showing a clear view into the caldera.

Tipsoo Lake, Late May

Mt Rainier in the Spring is stunning with its pristine white dress of snow. I love to drive up to Chinook Pass shortly after the highway (Washington SR 410) is reopened after a long cold winter. It is one of the more Picturesque highways in the Cascades I think.

On Shooting Bald Eagles

Putting Shooting and Bald Eagles together like this in a title is pure click bait. On the other hand, that is what I want to ramble on about in this post. That and wildlife photography in general.

May Day

Yesterday was May 1st. May Day.

Yesterday was also a georgeous day for a drive and a perfect day to complete a project our Grandaughter, Skylar’s teacher assigned to us. (Us? Assignment?)

So Skylar’s class has just finished reading the tale of Flat Stanley. The project was to create a Flat Skylar and send it to someone to tour about. Skylar had her teacher send Her Flat Self to us.

This is what we sent back.

Springtime is wonderful!

After weeks of drab dreary days. Of snow and rain and cold. The promise of Spring brings new life.
