Morning Stackup

The blue above the clouds above the fog above the mist was beautiful this morning!

The Fireside Marquee

We dropped by NW 23rd, celebrating Ashley’s recent birthday with desserts at Papa Haydn. Waiting for a table for seven, we wandered a while and I snapped some shots. Fireside’s marquee, with its neon accents and witty epigram, won the evening.1


  1. Rethinking, I would award the win to the hazelnut huckleberry cheesecake I enjoyed for dessert. Mmm… :-) 

Give me moire

I experimented with taking pictures of my screen. The diagonal stripes are real. The moire patterns are the result of the camera’s sensor, image resizing, and your computer’s display.

Jackson School Sunset

This evening, Heather and I walked around the neighborhood while the Earth continued spinning its path around the sun. The moon waited in the wings, soon to play a starring role.

Reid Wiseman on Twitter

Reid Wiseman is posting some amazing pictures on Twitter — a recommended follow.

He posted this cloudfree image of the the northwest just this morning.1

Orchids

After going to an orchid show in Sacramento a couple of years ago, I’ve developed a soft spot for orchids. We have more than a few plants on our kitchen drainboard. I think maybe five of them are orchids.

Inspired by the orchid show, I repotted a few of them and “rescued”1 another from a local big box home supplies store. Now, two are reblooming2 with another on the way.

If only I could make the Christmas cactus happy, too. I wonder, if I spent even a portion of the time I did learning about orchids, I bet I could.

Do you have a favorite house plant?


  1. Okay, it was half price at the end of the season, but it was one step away from the dust bin. 
  2. Including the rescue. 

Fall is Still Coming

I returned to the scene of the acorn snap from a couple of days ago and tried again. At least a couple of these acorns starred in both.

Weekend Snaps

I’ve been using Instagram a little more recently. I love it’s editor — simple yet effective enough. These are a few snaps from the past couple of days.

Fall is Coming…

Bicycling to work, I noticed more acorns on the path. I stopped to take a quick snap that I posted to Instagram. I figured that given a little more time, I could do better.

Are you as excited as I am for cool weather and hot drinks?

Lunchtime Diversion, Part I

I’m not entirely thrilled with this picture, but I do find the subject interesting.1 I think this can be done much better.2 Stay tuned… ;-)


  1. I’ve pondered it many mornings and noons. 
  2. Maybe I needed some more caffeine. ;-)
