A lovely selection from my Water Painting Impressionist Photography collection, this image was taken at the Seattle Japanese Garden at the Washington Park Arboretum several years ago. The Fall leaves reflected brightly in a pond and the slow moving water created this lovely Impressionist-style image. Those blues!

Fan Favorites – Fall COLORS

Happy FRIDAY, let’s explore some Fall COLORS!!!

I was on a FANTASTIC trip to the East Coast last week and didn’t get my blog out. But, I’m back and it’s time for some Fall COLORS fun and fan favorites from my Instagram feed!

I love the colors, light, textures and layers that Fall brings. I caught this leaf glowing in the sun’s spotlight as it shined through a break in the trees above.

It reminds me of warm fires and cozy Fall days.

Fan Favorites – The Palouse Roadtrip

My Palouse Roadtrip recap is underway on my Instagram page. It’s always fun to revisit a trip after I’ve returned and see the photos and remember the sights, sounds and feelings I experienced along the way. And, I love to indulge in my passion for storytelling with both words and photos that bring people along “with” me.

It’s a long drive out to the Palouse, 6+ hours to be exact. That’s a lot of radio time and focus at the wheel time! As I drove, not really sure what was between home and the “finish line”, I waited for just the right place to slow down, take an exit and get out of the car for a few minutes to rest my mind and eyes. I sure found the perfect spot at Wanapum Reservoir (and I’m sure glad I was in the right lane to make a split second exit when I saw the scenery!).

Who wouldn’t want to stop here in the middle of a long drive and take a stretch? I mean…EYE CANDY!

There were so many great colors and textures all around and I appreciated the wide open space and chance to “look out” instead of keeping my eyes focused on the road ahead. You know, we always need those moments in life when we can take a look beyond the right here, right now and shift our gaze wider and longer. Life lessons in a roadtrip photo…

Impressions On The Palouse

When I moved to the Pacific Northwest I read about a place called The Palouse. “What is The Palouse?” you might ask if you aren’t from around here. Well, it’s a 4,000 square mile region of rolling, asymmetrical hills covered in wheat. I was completely smitten by the idea of heading out with my camera to explore this divine-looking destination. It only took me 4 years, but hey, better late than never.

Let me show you my impressions on The Palouse!

I was amazed by the rolling fields of wheat, the colors, and the shapes and textures they created.

Fan Favorites – Life On The Ferry

Fan Favorites – Life On The Ferry

If you’ve followed my photography over the years you know that you don’t see many people in them. I find my creative expression inspired by nature scenes, urban settings and nautical environs. But this year I had a goal to push myself out of my comfort zone in all areas of life, so I took a photography workshop a few months ago and pushed myself out of my comfort zone and dedicated my eye and camera on people. The workshop involved one of my favorite things, the Seattle ferries, so it was a safe and inspiring place to get into the unfamiliar.

On Tuesday evenings, over a 3 week period, we rode ferries. Three different ferry routes around the Puget Sound to communities across King County. We visited Bainbridge Island, Bremerton, and Vashon Island. Well, we didn’t exactly visit the destinations, we visited the route there and back. As the ferries loaded, moved, and returned commuters and tourists, workshop participants took pictures of life on the ferry.  Each participant had their own style and way of seeing the ferry experience, from focusing on the shapes and light to black and white studies. While I pushed myself out of my traditional comfort zone and focused on people, I came away with photos that still reflected my love of color, shape and texture…but with people in them!
