9th Anniversary Blog: Re-Invention

May 18, 2020

1

The Stats Wow. I just checked and this is my 302nd blog. Since I published 4 blogs in one day, it went right by me. This year is my lowest ever total for published pieces with 12, or one a month, in the meantime I have over 70 posts in draft….Yet somehow people are still […]

Edinburgh & The River Tweed

May 18, 2020

1

Per usual, as my blog anniversary approaches, I start cleaning out my draft folder. Besides, this is my only fishing post for the year. Because I was working during the day, I got very few images, but Amber made 11 very detailed posts, with fantastic images on Facebook. Look under her Albums section and choose […]

Hyderabad & Bangalore

May 18, 2020

India Wrapping up the year and clearing out the draft folder I spent a week in Hyderabad and Bangalore. Unfortunately, the high tech centers are their own little cities two hours from the airport and you mostly work and go to the hotel. My pictures were taken on short walks or the back of taxis. […]

2019 Snohomish Car Show

October 3, 2019

2

I’ve not gotten to  many car shows this year. Today Amber graciously allowed us the time away from home stuff to take in the Snohomish show, probably because we combined it with a trip to the once good, now excellent, Andy’s Fish House. Given the iffy weather, I was surprised and happy to see the […]

India – Bangalore and Hyderabad

September 12, 2019

2

Recently I went to Bangalore and Hyderabad for business. India is so foreign, it’s almost alien. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a good photography trip. I was working in walled compounds that were on the outskirts of cities and staying just a few blocks away. Most of the images were taken either on the short walk, or […]

2019 Olympus Rally, Part II – What Amber Saw

May 17, 2019

0

Why two parts, you ask? Simple, because after taking hundreds of shots (I personally took 700) for the event, and looking at them on our cameras, Amber who had been standing quietly and patiently behind us revealed that she had been videoing the entire event. Once we saw  these we were much chagrined, headsplapping when […]

2019 Olympus Rally, Part I – What Bernard and I Saw

May 17, 2019

Last fall, Bernard and I hit the Tour de Forest Rally on the OP out of Shelton.  We had so much fun that this spring we dragged Amber back for the Olympus Rally. I’m a little fuzzy on the details but I think this is the first time this rally has been held in 20 […]

2018 Tour de Forest Rally

Lift, Brake, Steer This is a big blog with lots of images. Go have a beer while it’s loading. For more and better pictures visit Bernard’s blog.  I’ve always been fascinated by rally racing. Maybe it hearkens back to when I used to ride in the dirt, or when my dad used to stock car […]

2018 Doovall Daze Car Show

June 25, 2018

3

A Study in Opposites: 39 Color vs. B&W Comparisons, the Snap Judgement Blog Besides the teeth counting contest, the car show is probably the only redeemable part of Doovall Daze, a weekend every spring where the town mothers and fathers create a traffic jam in an attempt to impede business even further and force you […]

2018 Cruizin’ on Colby

May 31, 2018

All Hot Rods Should Just be B&W I used to go to this show every year, hauling my medium format camera on a tripod for B&W and an SLR with slide film for color. Many of the earliest shots on here come from then.  I haven’t been so long, I almost forgot about it. Now, […]
