It's a long story...

No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth!  I have just been really busy this summer. Farm life, youth outings, cattle round-ups and family life have just keep me way to busy.
I have been able to get in some photo time thou.  Some are not my best work but I have to keep practicing, right?
I was able to even squeeze in a quick trip to Seattle to spend some much needed family time with my daughter and her little family.  While there we had to take a road trip to some of the more important sites around town.
When I saw all the gold reflecting off the wall in the Smith and Wesson building I knew I needed the shot.  My DD though I was crazy until she saw the finished image.


What would a visit to Seattle be with out a visit to Pikes Market and the famous GUM WALL?  I don't know how this started but I had to add my two bits of chew.  

And lastly is the TROLE under the Fremont Bridge.   He's HUGE and YES that is a real mini car that he has in his hand. 
Sometimes in life ya just have to STOP and ENJOY the surrounds.  YA never know where you will find a good photo subject.

Now I hope to be adding update to my forgotten photo blog as soon as I get the yard work taken care of and the neighbors animals feed.
Next upcoming events - My hometowns 100th birthday - I am over photographing the WHOLE event.  Holy Cow what did I get myself into now?
