Orcas – San Juan Islands

Rick and I and his (childhood friend) Wayne who is here for a visit took an early ferry over to Orcas Island for a hike around Mountain Loop Lake this week. It was gorgeous and to our surprise hardly anyone on the trail in spite of the full parking lot when we arrived. The day

Free Flying

I love to test my abilities with the old lenses I shoot with. Not only are the some 40-50 years old but they are all manual so a task of photographing hummingbirds yesterday proved not to be as difficult as I had imagined. Nikkor 135 Df    and of course I had to literally give

Seattle for a Day

Rick woke up on Wednesday morning and came into my office and said, “We’re going to Seattle for the day, we’re going to have lunch and head up top the Space Needle!” This is a big deal for me because for 11 years I’ve been trying to convince him that he should view the city

Nikkor Exploratius – Yon San Hachi Roku

The ‘Yon San Hachi Roku’ competition

A Filly is Born Free…

On memorial day I sat reading a really inspiring, heart-warming article on Equitrekking entitled, “Horses We Can’t Forget on Memorial Day” As I was coming near the end of the article I received a private message from my neighbor Bekka saying, “Come see my baby!!! You’re gonna love her!” Of course I new the baby

Barclay Lake Trail, Saturday Juant

Through the woods and the down the trail we strolled, enjoying the beauty of Barclay Lake Trail on a beautiful Saturday morning hike. Parking lot was sorta busy, I’d say about 7 cars with a few stray vehicles parked along the roadside. We saw a few campers at the lake and one lady fishing in
