Happy how the new configuration feels with a straight handlebar, mtb brake levers, front sack, set back saddle post, and knobby but narrow tires. I’ve ridden this bike for two years but these changes make it feel like a whole new machine. Today is also the first out of ten where I can finally ride […]
While intending to photograph a dramatic lighting of this flying bicycle toy with a single point of light, I inadvertently summoned the Batman. Lessons learned in this photo: Having a mini tripod and shutter remote is incredibly useful. The Hinged screen on camera has earned it’s worth. Shooting in Manual allowed me to get this […]
We spent our morning tracking down a few bird-themed murals. This particular mural by Apeseven was one of my favorites. It’s so large, clean, colorful, and the way the feathers were created really inspires me to create more art.

I have literally owned this Godzilla toy for 23 years and have taken several photos in years passed but none so […]
It was icy cold out today. “Go play in the snow” she said. “It’ll be fun” she said. It’s nice that she is handy with a match to help thaw me out. Some thought and time went into this photo. While my minifig was freezing in the ice-cube tray, I did some practice shots with […]

Today’s photo is a great start for my 365-2017 project. Each day, I plan on posting my best photo taken that day. I don’t have any particular theme in mind, but you will likely see birds, nature, landscapes, bicycling adventures, and my day-to-day sights of the Pacific Northwest. This burrowing owl has been eluding me […]
