Reflections | April 2015 Roundup

These are some of the random photos from this past month.  The first one is from a Redmond on a night when the sunset was so pretty.

This dandelion was in a field in North Bend next door to a softball game I was shooting that night.  Same night that I photographed the Elk (below.)

Bull Elk, sows and calves from the North Bend herd.

Some Forget-me-Knots from just outside my front door.  I planted these from seed and they are in bloom and beautiful right now.

One of the many cottontail's stretched out in the yard enjoying the sun.

This is Finn who turns away everything time the lens is pointed at him, but  I caught him just as he was waking up from a nap.  Seeing him on the third tier of his cat tower had been a year in the making and now he's so proud he sometimes sleeps there all night.

Taken in the Snoqualmie Valley looking over at Carnation.

This is my dad who passed away 20-years ago today.  It's an image I took back on September 15th, 1993, just two years before he passed away.  It is my all time favorite picture of him.  A family tradition that started back when we were kids was to go to the Puyallup Fair every September.  In this image he just finished treating us all to barbecue ribs (his favorite at the fair) and the look on his face says it all.  He is missed, but never forgotten.
