Year 3 – September 21, 2014 – Granite Falls Fishway

Another great weather for the last days of summer here in Seattle.  We took a little trip north to check out a place called Tulalip (we have seen the TV spot advertising the casino and the scenery in the area and of course, the Seattle Premium Outlet – which is NOT in Seattle).  The mall was crowded but nice.  After that we decided to go see the mountains that we saw along the way here – a place called Granite Falls.  Reading some instruction on my cellphone, we found this place called Granite Falls Fishway and took some time to enjoy the great outdoor.  Afterwards, we were going to see the Big Four Ice Cave but the we couldn’t find the place (later we realized that had we driven for 10 more miles we would have been there) – maybe next week if the weather is still nice.

My neighbor is making everyone looks bad with his pristine lawn and he is ALWAYS working on his lawn!

Year 3 – September 20, 2014 – Mall Flower

I saw this interesting (and probably) decorative plant at our local QFC and thought to myself, here is my picture :)  however I didn’t have my camera with me – so the phone camera would work.

Year 2 – September 20, 2013 – the Punisher?

One of my coworker got this squash from the break room (as part of the “free Michigan summer produce” at the office) and I drew some faces on it to look like the Punisher.

Year 3 – September 19, 2014 – Split

I didn’t notice it at first but after I took my first picture of the interesting looking sky, however as I was chimping, I noticed that it looked like the sky split apart just from the nature of the formation of the cloud and the color around it.

[FYI - chimping is a term applicable to fauxtographers when they look at the camera LCD screen immediately after taking a picture, this the head goes up and downs like a chimp]

We didn’t plan on the hobnobbing but ended up exactly just at The Braven at Bellevue.

Playing with my macro lens today and want to see if I can make this small golden Buddha statue looks big.

Year 2 – September 17, 2013 – Juicy

One of the best thing in working in the office in Saginaw during summer is that there are always plenty of free fruits or vegetables from my coworkers that planted more fruits or vegetable than they can consume.  Some probably purposely planted more than necessary just to share with the whole office.  This juicy honeydew melon is very satisfying.

Year 3 – September 16, 2014 – Sweet and Juicy

I didn’t think of photography too much today so I just snapped a picture of this very sweet and juicy watermelon that we got a few days ago.

Year 2 – September 16, 2013 – Flower

This picture is so bad I don’t even know what to say.  I don’t remember why I took this picture horizontally (the whole picture is screaming vertical) so I ended having have to crop it and the picture become so small.

Year 3 – September 15, 2014 – Climb

I am somehow very fascinated with the creeping vines – maybe because I see them almost everywhere (almost as pervasive as the blackberries) or maybe they are just so eye catching – in this late summer some of them already look very vibrant red and orange – ready for fall.  Not this one in my neighborhood though.

Year 2 – September 15, 2013 – Fashion Square Mall

It has been a while since I visited the local Fashion Square Mall – I am not a mall person and I really can’t remember the last time I was here.
