Danger on the High Seas

Fishermen’s Terminal is unique among Seattle marinas. The vessels here reflect the independent, hard-working, and often dangerous lives of commercial fishermen.   Packed with gear and machinery that are as rugged as the men and women who choose this profession, each boat has its own personality and character. For me, this is the appeal of wandering [...]

Delightful Duplicity

Towering sailboat masts perfectly duplicated in smooth-as-silk water…In the often peaceful waters of marinas, there appears to be two of everything, with the sunny sides of boats seemingly painted on the fluid canvases of harbors. Whenever we travel, marinas are always magnets for us. Jeff and I have done quite a bit of boat chartering [...]

Golden Retriever Charmer

Who can resist a puppy? For us, the ultimate puppy is a golden retrieve, since that is the irresistible ball of fur we raised when our children were little. Buck, as we called our golden, and our kids literally grew up together. I jumped at the chance to photograph a friend’s golden retriever puppy several [...]

Cats Have Staff

Napping in a casserole dish. Popping out of the silverware drawer. Burrowing in the towel drawer. The mischief of our two Tonkinese kittens was reminiscent of our already-grown children’s toddler years! I’m not kidding about the silverware drawer. The smaller of the two kits, Cassie, actually opened the cabinet underneath and crawled up the back [...]

Ninety-Nine What?

Ninety-nine. No, not bottles of beer on the wall. No, not the route number of the Seattle highway being tunneled near the waterfront. Ninety-nine – The number of different images I’ve captured over the years for my annual CD-size calendars. Flowers in rainbow hues. Iconic Northwest scenes. Hawaii. The Galapagos Islands. One calendar had 15 [...]

Victoria: Canada’s Sweet Spot! (Part 2 – Canada Getaway)

The Inner Harbor of Victoria is an experience in itself, with the stately Empress Hotel (opened in 1908) at the head of this very protected bay and the regal neo-baroque Parliament building, home of the British Columbia legislative assembly, next door. Frenetic activity describes this waterway, with a constant stream of float planes, water taxis, [...]

“In a Fog”

How we love the Pacific Northwest! A favorite place to visit is the charming city of Victoria, British Columbia. In the past, we have taken the three hour journey on the passenger-only Victoria Clipper through the idyllic San Juan Islands, entering Victoria through the picturesque Inner Harbor, on the southern tip of massive Vancouver Island.

High on Lavender

In Sequim, of all places! Yes, I admit it, I was high on lavender…lavender oil, lavender lotion, lavender soap, lavender tea, lavender ice cream. You name it, someone makes it out of lavender. And in Sequim (pronounced “skwim”), a small, tucked-away village on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, you’ll find fields of lavender on small farms, with [...]

Duck Dodge Craziness

I had been forewarned that in the previous week’s race, two sailboats collided and one almost sank. Thus is the craziness of summertime Duck Dodge “races” in Seattle’s Lake Union. A small, triangular course and far too many boats for any sane sailor’s taste guarantee to provide plenty of thrills. Judging by the large number [...]

Surfing Fun (??) in Man-Eating Surf on an Average Day in Hawaii

I was armed with a rented super zoom100-400mm lens and my trusty tripod when Jeff and I happened upon a group of surfers in Napili Bay on Maui. It was a picture-perfect day for photography, and most everything else. To my untrained eye, those young guys were risking their lives in that mammoth, boiling, crashing [...]
