Notes from the Weekend

Recently decided to take my appreciation of photography to the next level and invested in a Nikon D600 camera.  Thrilled to take it on the road this past weekend … on a quick road trip to Portland, OR, passing through Olympia, WA, on the way.  Although we were short on time, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Nines Hotel, a place brimming with contemporary style.  The following is a glimpse at a few first images captured using the new DSLR.  Looking forward to sharing more soon.

We planned for snowmobiling, but instead, discovered a crystal clear lake and fresh mountain air over a weekend spent playing card games and sampling local food in the form of broasted chicken – a deep frying technique that is not for the faint of heart.
