Halloween Washout

Halloween 2013 looks like a total rainout. Lots of rain dampened trick-or-treat festivities. Now we are left to wonder, who going to eat all that candy?

Corn Row

Got a shot of a corn row while taking a hay ride with the grandson. Hard to make a shot of fall corn interesting, but I like the shot.

National Cathedral, Washington DC

Beautiful, but cool fall day for shots up and around the hill where the National Cathedral is located. Quite an imposing structure.

Peppers Anyone?

Can't walk by all this red without taking a shot. In Seattle's Public Market.

Seattle's Sanitary Public Market

Apparently, the other Public Market, which is across the street from this one in Seattle, isn't sanitary, or at least that is what we are supposed to think. Actually, the name came about since horses were not allowed in, which in today's age would cause activists to fight for horse's rights.

Seattle Building in Blue

I have been lucky with the weather so far this year. Caught Seattle a few weeks ago with great weather and mostly clear blue skies. Was heading into a meeting and caught this view by looking up.

Inside Ragin Cajun

Despite the stacks of books, this is a restaurant, not a book store. These books are either on the making of Gumbo, Jambalaya or yearbooks for Southwestern Louisiana State University. With those as a theme, you know you are in the south as this is Ragin Cajun a famous restaurant in Houston. Not sure anyone reads these books but they give the place some character. Great food too.

Lisle Fall Splash of Color

Haven't been to the Arboretum in Lisle this year so I need to go soon. Hopefully, the trees are just about in full bloom. Great place to see color. This shot is from fall 2011.

Haunted York Pennsylvania

Is it haunted? I have no idea. But I loved the roof lines and the upside down mouth on the roof for this house in downtown York, Pennsylvania.

Fantastical Seattle

Having fun with Photoshop, playing with colors and throwing in a more interesting sky creates this fantastical unreal scene of a Seattle street shot.

Puget Sound

Love a calm sea. From the Public Market wharf area in Seattle.

Downtown Seattle View

View of downtown Seattle from the Space Needle. Beautiful view of the city and the mountains beyond.

Space Needle

Its a tourist shot but it is hard to get a shot of an iconic landmark and not make a tourist shot out of it. At least it is my tourist shot. Actually, this is the first time that I have ever seen the Space Needle. It is not very prominent when you are in downtown Seattle.

Trail Run in Bellevue

Found a nice trail run near my hotel this week. Love getting off the roads and finding a surprise loop path. Damp and unseasonably warm run in a northwest forest.

Salem Bookstore

The first thing you think of when walking into Derby Square Bookstore in Salem, Mass is don't get killed by falling books. Then you think, "I have to buy a book from the bottom of that stack". Not sure I love bookstores like this, but they are fun to browse through. Unlike the appearance, these are all brand new copies. Anyway, something to check out if you are ever in Salem.

Andover Steeple

Right place, right time, camera ready. Was heading in to a restaurant for a presentation in Andover, Massachusetts and caught a view of a beautiful sunset over a building down the road. Does it ruin the picture to say that the steeple was sitting on top of a gas station? Oh well. Hopefully, this shot is worthy of going over 100,000 page hits today on the blog. One of my new favorites.

Salem Bewitched

They take their witches seriously in Salem, Mass. However, Samantha is a fun witch and one of my wife's favorite shows from the 60's.
