Sunday Stills: My Favorite Trails

I have a few favorite trails, here in beautiful Western Washington State.  The nearest, and probably least-known, is the Narbeck Wetland Trail, which is right across a major thoroughfare from the biggest building (by square footage) in Washington, an aerospace factory.  The trail winds through wetland ponds (when there's not a drought-this year was very …

Sunday Stills: Focus on the #Mysterious, if you can

Here are some seriously mysterious photos.  Some are almost eerie. This one was just meant for Halloween, wasn't it? Will a pirate ship materialize out of the fog? This really was scary.  At the top of Logan Pass, on Going-to-the-sun Road in Glacier National Park, the construction left absolutely nothing between that rock wall and …

Sunday Stills: #Those fleeting moments in life

I have managed to capture many of life's fleeting moments in my backyard, with my iPhone 13 Pro.  What has more fleeting moments than most?  That would be birds.  Every moment is fleeting for them, and they do not concentrate on any one activity for more than a moment, because they always have to keep …

Sunday Stills-Monthly Color Challenge:# Lava

First, let me offer condolences to Terri on the loss of her beloved dog, Aero.  It's hard to lose a pet whom you have loved for a long time. Since I don't have a dog, I will stick with Lava this week.  Terri informs us that she was in Hawaii in 2018, and so were …

Sunday Stills: Dilapidated, desolate places and things

Maybe it's only me, but I seem to see a lot of news stories about bad things happening to people in cities recently.  Like the street crime in Chicago and New York City; homeless drug addicts attacking walkers on Venice Beach in California; and AntiFa attacking drivers stopped at traffic lights in Portland, Oregon. Aside …

Terri’s Sunday Stills Challenge. Dessert? or Desert? Or both?

I checked, and I can't find any place where dessert and desert happen at the same time.  So I thought I'd highlight a little of both.  Multiple times, we have gone to Arizona for Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminars.  Of course, much of the state is desert, so it's really simple to take photos of …

Sunday Stills: The Solstice is Here!

Last year at this time, the temperature was over 100F here in Western Washington.  This is how our black cat dealt with the extreme heat. We are fortunate not to be covered in a thick layer of black fur.  Right now, in Everett at just after noon, it is 65F, cooler by far, but expected …

Sunday Stills: Takin’ it Easy with my #Feathered Friends

I will freely admit that our yard isn't quite as enticing (or as large) as Terri's is for birds, due to our many squirrels.  We have one seed-feeder that's squirrel-proof, and two suet feeders.  One suet feeder that would be easy for squirrels to get at, is always filled with hot-pepper suet, which the birds …

Sunday Stills: What might that Pacific Northwest #Aroma be?

Today's theme is aroma, and pictures that lead you to remember the #aroma of something.   So, I will start with an aroma that is one of my very favorites: the salt tang of the sea.  Since salt water is never more than a few miles away from our home in Everett, Washington, we are …
