Ever find yourself drifting away into a thoughtful world where inspiration is at every corner and a kind smile is on every face? Well, I don’t either. My driftiness is usually toward things I need to do today or the stressers of my life compounding like interest from a brokerage account tripling every couple years.
“Life is too short” they say, I say Life is too stressful, we need to take a moment and relax from this burden that deters us from accomplishing something to completion. Perhaps its time to gather our friends and family and appreciate all the things we take for granted.
Hope your day is well on this dreary afternoon saturday.
What is really happening over that mountain?
Getting to Grandmothers house is going to be harder than originally planned.
Perhaps the Journey really is better than the Destination?
All I know is that Life is always worth living when memories are worth remembering and not quickly forgotten.
Remember that as you Go Out the Door Tonight…
Here in Seattle Washington it is not often that we have clouds, Let me finish…
Clouds that are interesting and dramatic!
Yes, we have clouds, often, it is very frustrating since I believe I have that seasonal affected disorder and the sun brings me Joy.
Back to my point. Taking photos in Seattle outside is difficult, cause either you have absolutely No Clouds or so much cloud coverage there is nothing to take a pic of that incorporates a cool sky,and let’s be honest, we all love a cool dramatic sky.
So on this particular evening it was fun because Finally, a Cool Sky!
Some of the time people think that the cause of their problems are at the fault of others around them, their wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, kids, friends, family, let’s be honest the list could go on forever
But what if the fault of the issue, or problem or whatever is actually that of the view.
You can’t see the big picture, something is obstructing its view. Perhaps if you find that obstruction you find the root of the issue and Bam crisis solved!
Cait workin it Thug Style
A tree sprouting its roots as it begins to flourish from the ground! How inspirational it is to see something begin so small n delicate with years of hardwork and dedication grow to be something so tall and powerful!
Pierly Amazing Night … Yes, Pun intended ;)
A quiet and nice lil B&B in Olympia WA
I often overlook the special aroma that you feel at a B&B and tend to just jump straight to the idea of a hotel/motel typical places of stay on travels and other various vacations.
I’m going to start broadening my horizons looking for more cozier options, more ma and pop type of places.
Sure it may be more costlier but you have a sense that A: your doing some good with your money for the family, B: the Atmosphere at these types of places you can’t find in a hotel and C: the Service is usually spectacular, because, well, they actually care about your stay as opposed to a 15 yr old bell hop whom throws your luggage around like a football.
All to conclude, B&B’s are cool and so are the more rustic options out there as opposed to your typical “Ramada Inn”.
My girlfriend and I spent a weekend there, just touring around seing the sights. It was of course mostly rainy while we were there, but that didnt dampen our fun.. eh eh get it… dampen! so hilarious I know. I think the next time we go will be in July so perhaps we’ll have better luck then in getting at least a cool sky pic!
Burning bright as the sun shines comforts this tree with its comforting warmth of life. I guess I can be called a tree-hugger but I’m not as diehard tree huggish as some out there but, I do appreciate scenes like this that brings an idea of perfection all of the world.
That perhaps in this moment no wrong is being done to one another and no bad thing is being thought about or embraced.
I wonder if there are architects out there that seeing a building like this, yes a building like this-
This Crushed Can looking building actually sits the place of Seattles Space Center
Getting back, I wonder if architects see this building and get mad. Mad because it broke all the rules!
Or, are there architects out there that rejoice the rule breaking? It seems that in this world of consistent change and fast moving, and everything being instant, Rules are Being Broken.
We have “rules” or perhaps suggestions in photography, but honestly, breaking them is more fun, and it seems to be the thing to do these days….
Creatively speaking that is ; )
Why did I make the switch from Etsy Selling platform to Smugmug? Well, first off Etsy seems to be all artsy and crafty and a seemingly reasonable way to get your product out to buyers but the hidden truth is that it is not much better than trying to sell on Facebook.
Etsy tends to support those that are highly involved in Etsy, they promote you if you have a billion product listings, is that fair? No. To have one listing may seem cheap at 20 cents, but what happens when someone buys it? well, you have to re-list it. Oh and they take a good 12% of the total value of the product including shipping charges. So in the end you have to over charge your customers, Who wants to do that in This Economy?? Not me.
So I moved to Smugmug, whoa the freedom, the flexibility, its a selling platform I have always wished for. So goodbye Etsy and Hello Smuggers!
Hang on tight while we grab the next page
