My Year In Pictures: April Week 4

Looking at Ryan’s 1000 piece puzzle spread out on the desk is a lot like searching through my photo files filled with tiny images that tell the story of our lives.  It takes 1000 little pieces to show every known atom in the universe and at the end of this year I’ll have 1096 photos to mark key moments from the past three years.  A lot has changed in that time but plenty has stayed the same as well – just the way I like it. 🙂

The week started off cold, wet and gray but pretty green leaves brightened the view and kept the rain away when Finn and I took a walk.  Monday’s photo looks like a shiny silver rainbow in front of the library and Tuesday this baby narwhal rode with us in an elevator.

Wednesday and Thursday’s photos are of a clematis and strawberry patch in our backyard and  Friday night we took our monthly selfie for my other photo project (a family picture once a month).  Saturday afternoon Ryan and I enjoyed a few hours together working on his birthday puzzle.  I sorted through the box looking for edges and corners while Ryan told me everything he knows about each element in the photo.

Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest spring 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.


iPhoneography Tuesday: Nature’s Cycle in the Tulip Fields

iPhone Tuesday 5-5-15

The showy blooms have faded and it’s back to work for these hardy rows of tulips.  The Roozengaarde family has farmed tulips in Holland and the US since the early 1700’s and their 1,000 acre farm in the Skagit Valley is filled with tulip, daffodil and iris fields earning them the title of the largest flower bulb growers in the United States.
