Flora & Fauna

Spring has undoubtedly arrived and with it comes the annual cherry blossom gazing.  {See previous years’ here and here.}  The UW Quad was once again flooded with revelers, all with their camera gear in tow and giddy smiles at the ready.  Pink and white blossoms also adorned the tranquil Seattle Japanese Garden.  A glimpse at the scene this weekend as we welcomed the new season …

Bergdorf Goodman Windows

Wishing you the happiest of holidays and hoping the season finds you surrounded by joy and merriment wherever you may be.  Admiring the spectacular windows at Bergdorf Goodman has become a holiday tradition for many, and so in keeping with that tradition {remember last year?}, here are a few of my favorite scenes from this year’s theme Holiday on Ice.  Do you see anything on your wish list?  I do.


Sakura in UW Quad

Once again, we joined the throngs of sakura {cherry blossom} admirers that gather at University of Washington’s Liberal Arts Quadrangle each year.  It was Easter Sunday and the sun was shining, illuminating the clouds of cotton candy pink blossoms in full bloom. Take a look at last year’s sakura post taken with my iPhone compared to this year’s taken with the new Nikon D600.  Which do you prefer?  Is it true that from an aerial view the trees form the letter W?  Something I will have to verify and capture … maybe next year.

Notes from the Weekend

Despite a rather blustery weekend, hints of spring abound as we peered over Queen Anne Hill at the pretty Seattle cityscape below.  Continuing to discover the endless capabilities of the new Nikon D600 camera, especially on Saturday during Andy’s crew team {Sammamish Rowing Association} race at Green Lake.  CHI Fotographi’s arsenal of telephoto lenses made the race images possible.
