Week 21: Enjoying the Sun

Yesterday was a beautiful day in Seattle. I spent the afternoon at a BBQ at Carkeek Park with friends. Wandered down to the shore and snapped these two unsuspecting souls. I rarely take pictures of people but this scene caused many things to run through my head. Who are these people, what are they talking about, did that they know were being stalked by a photographer?

Week 20: Goose Hunting

Tonight after work I went hunting for geese, more specifically goslings. This is all a result of my co-worker Greg. Yesterday morning he sent out an email with photos he took on his bike ride into work featuring 2 baby goslings. I decided I must go find them. This morning I packed my camera in my pannier with the plan to hunt these goslings down after work. The plan was successful and I shot a goose.

Week 19: NewYork State of Mind

I had a very quick trip to NYC to attend a conference on Monday and was lucky to be able to squeeze in a great dinner at Loeb Central Park Boathouse with my cousin Sheila. If you've never been the view is amazing and the food is just as good, I highly recommend it. For dinner I had the mixed green salad, Jumbo shrimp with roasted fingerling potatoes, garlic confit and parsley sauce. Topped off with the cheese platter. I didn't take any photos of my food I did however get one of the view.

Week 18: A New Project

This week has been super busy not with work or travel but with a new project I have taken on. as a result I have not had a chance to go out with my camera. I have decided to renovate my kitchen which has resulted in this week being filled with meetings with my designer, researching stuff on line, interviewing contractors, viewing samples of counter tops and cabinets. Holy moly this is a lot of work. Good news is some decisions have been made and it looks like I should be able to get this project completed by July. The decisions I have made is that the counter tops will be from EcoTop or something similar this is a very green product, they are made from recycled paper the counter tops will either be black or a dark grey. I am leaning towards a cream color for the cabinets or a very light maple. These samples (and photos) are from Canyon Creek.

Speaking of samples the few pictures I have taken this week are samples of fabric for the project. Fabric, what do I need fabric for well the new kitchen will have an elevated bar. While these aren't the greatest shots as they were taken with my camera phone in poor lighting conditions I didn't want to miss out on a week. These are the 3 fabrics I am considering for the bar stools. What do you think I should go with:

Week 17: I See Summer

Yesterday was a gorgeous day for a hike. A 1.5 hour car drive and a 15 minute ferry and I was at Ebey's Landing on Whidbey Island for a 6 mile hike along the bluffs. Clear blue skies & big white clouds, it really doesn't get much better than this. I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many hikes over the next coming months.
