At least when it's cold. I saw (and stepped on) the phenomenon known as needle ice today as we were doing some outdoor Christmas light planning.

We woke up to our first snow in the new house in West Seattle today. Here are a few photos of the scene!

Seattle Japanese Garden

Nov. 1
Nothing brightens a gray Northwest day like friends and a stroll through a place lush with Fall color. Connie and I joined Matt and Kelly for a visit to the Seattle Japanese Garden and, let me tell you, it's worth the $6 entry fee -- especially now.

Greenbank Farm & Halloween Hijinx

Oct. 31
With a D20 Brass Band gig on Whidbey Island schedule this evening I headed out early in the afternoon to catch the ferry. Though the day was soggy with rain I met up early at Greenbank Farm for a tour of the property and to snap some photos.

D20 Brass Band Costume Party

Oct. 25
As a member of D20 Brass Band, I pride myself on our playing, professional attitude, and our costumes. Though I don't have a particular nerdy character I cosplay I green it up as much as I can.

Partial Solar Eclipse Between Seattle Clouds

Oct. 23
We were fortunate today in West Seattle we got to enjoy a partial solar eclipse despite some dicey weather swirling all around us. I rigged up my camera, got out some glasses from previous solar eclipses I watched in 2000 and 2002, and snapped away.

Seattle and the Giants Above

Oct. 20
Clearings in the storm meant great views of some towering clouds against the Seattle skyline.

Stunner of an October Sunrise

Oct. 19
I'm always keen to photograph and share sunrises like this. Especially as the cloudy and darker months descend upon us here in the Pacific Northwest.

Gideon's 4th Birthday at Woodland Park Zoo

Oct. 18
Aaron's son Gideon turned 4 today so Connie and I drove through busy weekend road closure downtown Seattle traffic north to the Woodland Park Zoo. We wandered through the exhibits for a bit once there then had a blast riding and watching the party kids ride the beautiful carousel.

BrickCon 2014

Oct. 4
Adventure planned and adventure achieved today! My brother and his family came up yesterday to join us for the weekend and to take my newphews to their first BrickCon!

Dahlias & Seattle Sightseeing

Sep. 16
With my sister Toni in town Connie and I whisked her around Seattle for a delightful day out. First, breakfast at the ever fantastic Hudson.

Fishing Charter off Long Beach, WA with Dad & Joseph

Sep. 13
We awoke at 4am to head to Ilwaco and board the Sarah Kay for our morning journey out to sea. Once we headed out and rounded the mouth of the Columbia River our trusty skipper took us north where, just after sunrise, the fish were practically jumping in the boat.

Beach Time with Family

Sep. 12
I joined my parents in Ocean Park on a stunning, warm day on the Washington coast. We took their new pup Mad (he's actually really sweet) Max to the beach for a walk and we kicked off our shoes to enjoy the sand and surf.
