Lake Lillian

From a recent hike to Lake Lillian.  I never actually made it to the lake, which I guess isn’t that uncommon. There was snow at the ridge, and I ended up losing the trail.  (Made more exciting by the fact that the mosquitos attacked every time I stopped to look for it.)  But the surrounds were beautiful.  I think it may be one of my favorite hikes.  

If Only I Could Sketch….

…. but I can’t.  ūüôā Fortunately, photoshop can help me fake it.  Here’s a digital sketch, from a digital photograph: Seattle, on one of its rare clear May sunsets. (Also check out this panoramic, taken at the same time.)


For my photo class, I’m supposed to be shooting 100 photos a week in addition to my assignments.  Here are some of my favorites so far…                      

Whidbey Island w/ Archana

Took advantage of a BEAUTIFUL Seattle Saturday and day tripped to Whidbey Island.¬† Felt very lucky to be¬†2 hours¬†away from such peaceful serene vistas… We started by having lunch in Coupeville.¬† They made these amazing sandwiches on 2 inch slices of homemade bread.

Snowboarding (AKA falling on your ass)

I went snowboarding for the first time last Wednesday.  It was beautiful day Рsunny, warm, clear.  It was a less-than-ideal snow day Рicey, wet, hard.  Result?  Beautiful landscape and a pleasurable lift ride up the mountain.  And a very very sore bum.
