My Year In Photos: June Week 2

I see a lot of blues, grays along with some warm patches of gold in my latest set of photos which is just about right when it comes to June in the Pacific Northwest.  Blue skies and flowers mixed with heavy gray clouds and warmed by the sun during our longest days of the year.  We had a full schedule with all the end of the year school activities, a quick day trip across the water and a busy work week so for the first time you’ll see I posted more than one photo without any editing.  In contrast, other images are more heavily edited than usual but both approaches are a reflection of how I felt in the moment.  I either wanted move on and post quickly or I tried to add a little color and interest to something that was just a small moment in the day.

The week started with this view from the passenger deck on one of our state-run Ferries and Monday afternoon I began writing the Etsy listing for this new blanket.  Tuesday I wanted to experiment with the new pinhole lens available through Hipstamatic and Wednesday was Ryan’s final band concert.  I made him pose for the usual “hurry up mom” snapshots in his Tuxedo but this spontaneous click taken after John told a slightly off-color joke is my favorite of the night.

Thursday is a look through a large pane of shattered glass and Friday shares one of my favorite ways to relax – watching clouds float over the islands.  Saturday I visited our local bookshop for some last-minute Father’s Day gifts and was happy to see they’ve expanded their hours for the summer season.  Now we’re looking forward to long summer nights with plenty of new books to enjoy.

Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on InstagramTwitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.

  1. Sounds like a calm and peaceful week of June for you, Lisa. The view from the ferry looks magnicifent. I spy clouds overheads, and I hope the waters weren’t too choppy. Ryan looks dapper in his tuxedo and that is actually a very nice smile. Bit bashful, actually. I’m guessing his performance went well later that day 🙂


    1. We had a great combination of interesting skies and calm water, for the ferry crossing, Mabel. Ryan’s band performance was fun and yes, he was trying not to blush int he photo when he realized I could hear the joke too. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Sally. This was by far the most popular photo on my social media accounts for the week with 4 times the views of the second place shot from the ferry boat. It’s nice to hear you like it too. 🙂


  2. My favorite is the ferry shot. I’m attracted to its symmetry, with the clouds almost centered over the life ring. That’s also a great portrait of Ryan … I can see the young man he’s becoming.


    1. The ferry shot was a fun moment, D’Arcy, I like standing outside with all the wind watching what’s coming next. 🙂 Ryan has grown so much this year and he looks more like his Dad and Grandpa with every passing day…
