It’s been a struggle getting back to the blog. Not writer’s or photographer’s block; very full days working on new projects and trying to keep all the balls in the air! So far, so good. Thanks for your patience.

I am in the midst of a three-week trip through the coastal areas of northern California, Oregon and now up into the islands of Washington’s Puget Sound (Whidbey Island to be specific). It’s been a terrific trip so far. Connected with friends along the way, oddly enough those from the east coast who happen to be out here at the same time. Small world.

Spent a little time this morning at one of my very favorite places to shoot: the Coupeville (WA) Pier. The skies were bald blue and the wind was nil. Very quiet and a lovely way to start the day.
