While in France, I visited the cemetaries and gathered some interesting images. This one reminds me of being "Ghostly" because of the way the sun is hitting the headstone. I wonder how many ghosts wander the graveyards in search of their new home?

About a year ago, a friend and I headed up to Port Townsend in an attempt to shake our mid-winter doldrums. The beach provided plenty of opportunity for photos and foolish folly. My friend had once lived in Port Townsend as a child and enjoyed the time she spent reconnecting with nature. I loved the compositions. This boat was sitting on the beach and I believe it has been there for years as I know I've seen it before on previous visits.

I went on a "Photo Day" today with a few friends. We met up at the Pike Place Market and wound our way up the hill to the Seattle Library. Along the way, we encountered this woman. Her face projected from the side of a building across from the Seattle Art Museum. I enjoy her serenity and apparent wisdom.

I'm not sure where I took this photo but I do know it was one of my first efforts. I took up photography in high school and recently re-discovered my photography class efforts. I had so much fun in that class and while not all of my efforts were successful, I ended up learning a lot about photography. This image grabs me due the rustic building and broken equipment. I enjoy taking pictures of barns and rustic buildings. The flecks of dust from what was an extremely dusty photo room add to the rustic qualities of this image making it appear even older than it is.

I played around this weekend in a dark room with a vase and some candles. I love this vase which actually belongs to my sister-in-law. The fiery appearance of the vase called for light and I'm quite pleased with the accomplished results.

In late October, I visited the National Cathedral in Washington DC while there for a marathon. A friend traveled with me and was very helpful in getting this shot. I love the luscious red color of the rose.

This morning on the way to work, I stopped at a park. Today the ground was frost covered and the trees were lined with frozen dew. While I do enjoy how this turned out, I think that next time I would like to get there earlier so that I could walk further into the park for other views and potentially catch the sun as it rises.

I attended a party on Saturday night at a wonderful Art Studio. It was filled with artwork from top to bottom. This head struck me as unique and I asked my friend to pose next to it. She really surpassed herself with this face, helping to create a great composition.

Photo Friday was a challenge this week. I thought, quizzed and poured through photos until I found one I took while in the car a few weeks ago. I had the camera on time lapse so this double image of my face appeared. To further distort my face I changed the colors.

We spent New Year's Eve at the SkyChurch in the EMP. Beer was difficult to attain but the images were great. The opening band used a lot of light and background images which led me to quickly fall in love with the vibe from the lead singer. He was super funky!

There is a park I discovered while dogsitting this summer. I used to take the dog there for walks and exploration. Surrounding the play area is a short wall with entry gates decorated with childhood figures. This dragon protects the southeast corner and welcomes children at play.
