Ice-cream & Fruit

I’ve signed myself up for a monthly series of photo remakes on Flickr to hone my photography skills while savoring tempting food shots by other photographers. Hosted by Lara Ferroni of the amazing food photography site Still Life With…, each month presents a new image that Lara selects for the group to replicate over the course of the month and submit their results to the group pool for feedback and compliments. It’s a pretty exciting way to learn. Past images include NutellaRead More >>

Eating Seattle

Seattle. The city of incessant drizzle, Grey’s Anatomy, Starbucks, Kurt Cobain and the Grunge movement, and most importantly, the true home of ‘Pacific Northwestern’ cuisine. On a recent visit in late May, we were blessed with sunny weather throughout the trip, trading in umbrellas and hoods for sunglasses and shorts. In fact, the weather was so amazing, and the city so beautiful I caught myself dreaming about moving to Seattle, settling into a cute little apartment in Belltown or CapitolRead More >>
