Playing catch-up (10 for 113)

September 28, 2013 - We have such short and fickle memories when it comes to the weather. The first real weather system of the season rolled in today and the rains have fluctuated between nothing and monsoon strength. But we forget that we had the most amazingly fabulous summer this year. But the second those [...]

Dreaming

August 28th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013, Just Thinking|

I always feel a sense of loss when I wake up and can still feel the vestiges of a dream slipping away, it's like delicate cobwebs being brushed off. You can close your eyes tight and try, but it always seems that the harder you try to recall the details, the more they dissipate into [...]

Patience….

August 25th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013, The Twisty Route|

August 24, 2013 - On Thursday a co-worker stopped by my desk and handed me a few sheets of paper. I took them and only half glanced at them as I wanted to ask her a question. The papers looked like a spreadsheet and I assumed they represented something I'd asked her to look at [...]

Big Bicycles

August 25th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

August 8, 2013 - Just a bit of goofiness in Packwood, Washington. We spent the night here after bouncing around the backside of Mount St. Helens for the better part of the day. The day's adventure is here... 113 photos in 2013: #29 - Bicycle(s)

I Wish…

July 25th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

I wish the flowers never faded. I wish the grass was always green. I wish happiness did not feel fleeting. I wish that joy always outweighed sorrow. I wish people would never have to feel the pain of the loss of a much loved family member. I wish three childhood friends didn't each have to [...]

The Empty Road

July 25th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

I just love the solitude of an empty road. Sometimes when I go for a ride I am annoyed when there is someone sharing my road and I may even pull aside to get my solitude back. I think one of the reasons I fell in love with riding the motorcycle was the somewhat forced [...]

What lies around the corner?

July 24th, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

Wouldn't it be terrible if we always knew? Life would be boring and predictable. Sometimes a bit of predictability is nice, but all the time? That would be horrible. Nothing would ever be a surprise. We would spend our time dreading things that we couldn't control. Much better to enjoy the curves that life presents [...]

The Sign

July 22nd, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

I was sifting through some photos, looking for shots that I have taken so far and that fit the 113 themes. Running these two projects simultaneously isn't as challenging as the last three years of a photo-a-day were, and I am more relaxed about them, knowing that I have a week to take each 52 [...]

Snacks in Whistler

July 21st, 2013|113 Photographs in 2013|

July 21, 2013 - No new townhomes on the market in the past two weeks, at least not any that fit what we are looking for. So what to do on a gorgeous Sunday? Well, when I walked into the bedroom and found all my gear laid out on the bed the answer was pretty [...]
