Sledding at Baker!!

Had a day off and the weather was perfect so we loaded up Brennan, some warm clothes, his new sled, and headed up to Baker in search of snow and fun. It was perfect. Shockingly there were very few people there and since it was a Tuesday, the upper ski area was closed. We hung out right around the lift area and had a blast. Brennan liked sledding on the smaller hill, not so much on the big hills. He also loved digging around in the snow with his "beach/garden toys" and throwing snow up in the air. As you might guess, there's a lot of pictures.

B and B'ham: Two Assignments

It was a gray, overcast day in downtown Bellingham on Monday, February 18th. I had two chunks of time; one with Brennan and one without. With both chunks of time I wanted to enjoy one of my passions; photography. But with the lighting terrible; (middle of the day, gray, overcast, light drizzle), I had to kind of make up a challenge for myself and get creative to enjoy the photography.

So with my first chunk of time, with Brennan, I put my camera into Black & White mode and fired away. I don't know why but I've never done this...and I really enjoyed some of the images I captured.

With my second chunk of time, I went back to color and tried to photograph just that...color. On a gray day, one of the main sources of color (downtown) is signage...so I looked for some fun things to shoot and tried to find some color.

Those were my self-appointed assignments...hope you enjoy my homework. Here's a link to the full album...
