Sunflower Sunset

Usually when I visit my mom at the farm, I take it real easy. And I certainly did that on this week’s visit. But I also told myself I would try to do some photographing while here. One evening, my mom and I headed to a field of sunflowers in time to catch the sunset. ...

Dixon High School Fireworks—July 4, 2016

For July Fourth, my mom took me, my daughter, and my niece on a new adventure: the city of Dixon’s fireworks show. The parking turned out to be full at Hall Park, but a generous man directing traffic advised us to head down to the Dixon High School parking lot. The school is where the ...

Independence Day

Happy Fourth, my friends! This year’s Independence Day seems to carry more weight, largely because it’s an election year (make sure you vote! It’s important), but also because I’ve spent the last eight months being captivated by Hamilton, the Musical and, in turn, the stories of the people who founded the United States. I’m still ...

Late-Night Affogato

Sometimes an idea gets into your head and you have to chase it down to get rid of it. And sometimes you also get ice cream as a bonus. Friends in Portland alerted me to a new Tillamook ice cream flavored with Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee. (Tillamook and Stumptown are local Oregon brands that have ...

The new iPad Pro 9.7-inch model had just been announced, with an intriguing new True Tone display feature that adjusts the screen’s color temperature based on the ambient light in the room. And ...

Cherry Blossoms at UW 2016

With scheduling and the big wind storm that ripped through the area last week, I figured I’d missed my opportunity to go to the University of Washington and enjoy the annual cherry blossom bloom. However, those hearty trees held on, and my family and I were treated to a vibrant display one late afternoon. It ...

Kehinde Wiley at the Seattle Art Museum

The Seattle Art Museum is showing a large collection of work by Kehinde Wylie—and by “large collection” I also mean large in size. These hyper-colorful paintings of black men and women in traditional (white) poses is best viewed in person where you can get the full effect of the giant canvases. I went with my ...
