Another reflection on a wall by a piece of glass at the Museum of Glass. The shadow is as beautiful as the piece. And my reflection here: For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee. My other books are up there as Leslie R. Lee. Appears to only be B & N so far. Just so you know, because I know you've downloaded and read The Edge. My science fiction novel, The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is now... Continue reading

One of the many great and intriguing sculptures at the Museum of Glass. The curators have mounted the pieces so that the observer can see many different aspects of the artists intent.

Another shot from the Museum of Glass. Lots of cool stuff in the background. Again, if you're up in the Seattle-Tacoma area, well worth a visit.

One of the best places to visit up if you're in the Seattle-Tacoma area is the Museum of Glass. For a very reasonable entrance fee, you get to watch glass being made and see different glass exhibitions. The building itself is unique in my experience. Have lunch at the cafe. Good food though it can get crowded since it is small. Parking underneath the museum for a small fee. Walk across the bridge of glass which has some more examples of glass to the courthouse. That used to be a train station. Now it houses courts as well as more... Continue reading

There are two swans living on the grounds of Madigan Hospital in WA. The hospital itself is on Joint Base Lewis McChord. My granddaughter Olivia was delivered there by a wonderful, expert, and professional staff. Everyone there was friendly, competent, and sharing. There's a lake right in front of the hospital. Along with some other water fowl, the two swans live there and apparently nest and breed. Those are pretty big birds. And I don't know about these particular ones, but they can be mean too. Think geese but with a nastier disposition. And a longer reach. And should you... Continue reading

Just caught one shot of this guy before he was gone. That brilliant blue was amazing. Bright and incredible. Haven't ever seen one like this in LA. This was up in Northern CA around Mount Shasta.

An old shot from the trip to the beach. The waves roll in and leave a riot of bubbles. Cold water. And should you also be wondering...

The deck of the Sundial Bridge in Redding, CA, is glass. So you can get underneath and look up. And sorry, it is frosted glass. But it makes a vey interesting look. The glass is bluish. I wonder how it would look if people shone flashlights down through the glass. And should you also be wondering... For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble.

Another shot of this beautiful bridge. Just missed sunset unfortunately. Just means I'll have to come back again. And I count myself lucky to have caught this shot. A beautiful night with perfect temperaturs and few mosquitoes. Saw a few bats. Hope the bats get the mosquitoes. And returning to an old thought...

Actually the Sacramento River as taken from the Sundial Bridge in Redding. This young woman was being rowed about as she cast into the river. Was hoping she would catch something but I bet she was hoping more than I. And speaking of hope... For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble.

I see two different faces but not at the same time. A big on or a smaller face with a partial torso. Or I could just see a tree with a beautiful bark.

On our trip to Puyallup, Washington, we stopped a night in Redding, California. We highly recommend stopping there and visiting the Sundial Bridge. It's an amazing pedestrian only bridge, spanning the Sacramento River. It was designed by Santiago Calatrava. Here's the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sundial_Bridge_at_Turtle_Bay Redding is a great little town. Stayed in the Hampton Inn there. We've always found their hotels to be consistently excellent. The woman at the front desk guided us to a fantastic little restaurant called the Savory Spoon. Highly recommend this place for great food and great ambience. The owner has put up displays of restaurants from... Continue reading

A shot I took before running up north. More on that later. Needed to process this shot and then post it since I like it so much. Eventually, there's going to be a deluge of grand daughter shots. But for now I shall spare you. Partly because I have almost 1500 shots to process from the trip. Not all of our beautiful granddaughter and not all by me. First time I have come close to filling up two memory cards. I need to get more cards obviously. And hey, since you haven't heard from me a while: For those who... Continue reading

A Little Kelp For My Friends. Keep finding decent enough shots from my time at the beach. Someone said that there are kelp recipes. I've never seen kelp on a menu so I have no idea what it's like. I like seaweed. Around a sushi roll, or little wafers in my ramen. But no kelp. At least not that I know of. Have you tried it? For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee. My other books are up there... Continue reading

The Pacific Ocean provides some amazing subjects for photography. At your feet, in the air, at the edge of the surf. And if you're not careful, the sea will give you a bit of a dousing too LOL. But as long as the equipment stays dry. Been a little lazy about taking new shots. But it gives a good excuse to process the shots that I do take.

Waves at Venice Beach breakwater. Some pretty impressive sizes. The surfers liked it. Something very soothing about the sounds of waves. And as long as they don't get too big, fun to watch. And by big, I don't mean surfer big. I mean tsunami big. For those who care, there's some issue with my books up on Barnes and Noble. The Wound, the sequel to the Edge, is under the name Leslie Lee.

A Walk Along the Beach. Couple of birds looking for a bit of food at the surfline at Venice Beach. Can't remember the name of the birds. A beautiful morning to send off a couple of guests from the East Coast. Especially since it was warm enough to stroll along in shorts and watch the surfers. And have them know they were going back to below freezing temperaturs. BWAH HA HA HA HA HA!!! My science fiction novel, The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is now available here for $00.99!!! How great is that? Just think, you can get... Continue reading

Wish I did have a tripod so I could have caught this photo without quite so much blur. I tried using some stationary objects to prop the camera up on but nothing got it quite right. I probably should have used a higher ISO too. Still, I like the light on the ocean. This is Santa Monica's ferris wheel. Very pretty at night. My science fiction novel, The Wound, the sequel to The Edge, is now available here for $00.99!!! How great is that? Just think, you can get TWO books for the price of one! Only a buck. Well,...

The shots of the clouds yesterday are fascinating me. That means I get to inflict them on you who look at these shots. These three natural phenomena truly amaze me primarily due to the ability to capture them through technology: Liquid, Fire, and Clouds. When used in time lapse, either sped up or slowed down, just fascinating to watch. And although astonishing in normal time, they become living things due to our ability to capture them.

The sky was amazing this evening. This shows the scale of these striped clouds if you can find the plane. I might just have to post cloud photos for the next few days since I have what I think are some very interesting shots.

An older shot of a flight of sea gulls heading back to the coast at sunset. And way over processed by me but hell, I like it. We've had a fair chunk of rain over the last few days but it's merely dented the worst drought on record I believe. But anything is welcome. We just didn't need half a year's rainfall in the space of a couple of days. And the sequel to The Edge has dropped on iTunes/iBooks for those interested. The Wound is now available here for $00.99!!! How great is that? Just think, you can get... Continue reading

Well, I do. Looks like a figure. And this is a real rarity for me. I did not crop this at all. Lots of other kind of processing (that's the fancy name I use for playing with buttons and sliders).

Actually, I think it's a rat and was made for the Chinese Year of the Rat. Yes, I know, it's the Year of the Horse. But I don't have a horse. A sunflower symbol graces the right ear of this little guy. You can see it reflected in the mirror stand.

Not the greatest shot but I liked the lighting. Managed to catch it just as the setting sun underlit it. Think it was a fire department helicopter. Some sort of activity on our street.
