can you believe
that other than editing to black and white or softening with a polaroid look, i haven't had to edit any of my vacation photos, which means the light in seattle and oregon is about as close to perfect at you can get, which means that yes, this is sooc, which means that this starfish really is this purple, even on a cloudy misty day.

  14. yes, definitely see it.
    He's a bit on the plump side isn't he.
    no wonder he's running.

  24. This photo made me smile because it brings me back to my childhood and visiting the tide pools where we found gems like this each time. Beautifully captured and it looks like you had a splendid time in the northwest!

  25. You find the most fantastic pictures. I really should get behind my lens again because it really is a skill to see the world through it. I use to see everything as a possible picture, but one forgets how once you take the lens away for long periods of time.
