As I type this on Saturday afternoon the sun is shining, birds are chirping and if I close my eyes I can almost pretend I’m sitting in the lovely sun room at the Lake Crescent Lodge in the Olympic National Park. I’ve already written a few posts about our strange, warm winter here in the PNW and it looks like the trend will continue a little while longer. In fact Friday’s 61 degrees set a record for the warmest January 11th in Seattle history. Wow.
Looking through my picture gallery above you might wonder why you’re seeing images from September instead of views from last week. Well, there were two main reasons I decided to take on another 365 photo challenge, one was to finally share some of the thousands of new images hiding out in my photo roll and the other was to push myself to start writing again. Even if it was just little, chatty updates from my week the practice would be good so here we are looking back on a warm September afternoon while I type a post in January.
As for my week it was a busy one filled with extra work hours and long afternoons trapped in rush hour slowdowns. Audiobooks are my lifeline in the car and thanks to our local library I can usually work my way through an author’s catalog from beginning to end. This season I’ve been listening to a lot of Christopher Moore and by friday afternoon I’d finished The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove. There wasn’t a lot of opportunity for photography although I did take a few new images for use later and when I had a free minute I thought back to this trip with Ryan when we were beginning to practice portrait photography for his Senior Pictures.
As with past year-long photo challenges I don’t plan to post here every day, I’ll save that for my Instagram and Twitter accounts, but you faithful blog readers will get one weekly recap every Sunday.
