Postcard from Seattle

The view from a golf course up on a¬†hill in Newcastle, a suburb to the southeast of Seattle. No, I don’t play golf; I just stopped there during a bike ride today.

Looking to the northwest across Lake Washington, with a peekaboo view of Seattle’s skyline over on the left.

Clip art

This is a good example of the power of art to transform. This random arrangement of a paper clip resting on a small pebble looked uninteresting and ordinary; part of the detritus all around us. But then it became the centerpiece of the photograph, and it suddenly acquired some sort of tongue-in-cheek visual gravitas.

Yet another beautiful sunset

Herron Island (Washington) sunset, a couple of days ago.

I try to get down to the beach at least four or five times a week to take in the evening stillness and beauty. I don’t have a view from my house, but the beach is a ten-minute walk away; I almost always have the place to myself.
