My inner Pansy

Color and Pattern
Water and Sky

I was thinking about trying Minimalist Photography or maybe I'm thinking of Abstract Photography.

Seattle Found Art

On the PCC building

What's up doc?

I just like the face.

I went around  Green Lake and then to Fred Meyer in Shoreline.  When I was heading to the Lake I had to herd some geese in to the street to get down the sidewalk.  I was worried they might hit by a car.

Goose in the road!

Ferry Ride to Bainbridge

Rush Hour on the Ferry

Loading of the Cars

 Seattle skyline in the distance

Coming back in to harbor
If I can possibly get up early enough,
I want to see the sunrise too.

Seattle Grey

From the shores of Lake Union

In Gas Works Park

Nothing but grey to see!

I shot these photos in color and I didn't see much change when I desaturated them.  I think I like black and white photography.

Seattle: In a green yellow mood

Nothing says spring like a daffodil ready burst open. 

I felt like my body
was invaded by green balls 
of death.  I had to go to the hospital
yesterday because I had a fever of 101.5.

Interesting Reflection

2 sugar cookies on a red plate

Happy Valentine's Day!
 I had a good day
got my wheelchair fixed
sold some art
created some art too
and then ate those 2 cookies on a red plate.

Please stop eating America!

 Americans are the fattest people on the planet.  Obesity costs this country billions each year in health care, money that could be spent other places.  I was fat once and I know how much I cost the government in drugs, diabetic test supplies, blood tests and doctor visits.  Being overweight is the root to too many other health problems.  If we all lost 10lbs (some of us 50) just think how much healthy and richer we'd be.

Eat this

Ear less of this!

Shoreline: Sky

Flowers, Plants and Trees
Pots, Tools and Seeds
And a Delicious Cup of Coffee if you please!

White Hellebore

Chalk Cyclamen

I come here often to take pictures.  Its a large roomy nursery that I can get around easily in my wheelchair.

Seattle: Ryan Henry Ward

This is Henry and his dog Merlin.  Henry's work can be seen all over Seattle.  I found this gem near 80th and Aurora.  He hangs out in the Ballard Short Stop Coffee Shop and his work can be found in the Orange Splot Gallery in Fremont.  I like the cartoonish feel to his murals.  Most murals depict whimsical animals and flowers.  Along with the murals he has also painted and sold over 2000 canvases.  He started painting in 2008.

killroy was here!

Kilroy is here! was started before WW2 by an American navy man.  According to legend a ship inspector James Kilroy wrote it on ships after he finished looking at them.  Later, servicemen began writing this other places as a symbol of reassurance for solders in stressful places.

Seattle: Crows around the Sound

Tastes like chicken.

Dark as Death
And noisy as Hell

Creepy Love Birds

What is the difference between a crow and a raven?  A raven is a crow but a crow is not a raven.  They are in the same family but a raven is larger, has a different shaped tail and there are iridescent blues and purples in its feathers.  I love crows except when they dive at you almost coming close enough to rip out your hair.
