On and Off the Grid

Recently seen

in and around Seattle –

the hard and the soft,

rigid and supple,

all a part


some mysterious whole,

I suppose.


Photos taken with an Android phone (2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th) and a DSLR (!st, 3rd).  Processed in Lightroom and/or Perfect Effects.

The white flower is a magnolia, the orange & pink ones are coneflowers (Echinacea). The building at the bottom is a new University of Washington Medicine Research Center in Seattle.


  1. Looks like you’re having a time exploring my old hometown. When I was there at the end of June/beginning of July, when the relatives were complaining about the heat and wanted to do nothing…I was gadding about in a hoodie and borrowed socks. Thanks for the photos !


    • So funny! And believable. Yes, I’m still enjoying it and I expect I will be for a long time. Today we went to Gasworks Park – finally! And what a glorious day it was there – the seaplanes flying overhead, all manner of boats in the lake, kids skateboarding & flying kites, a wedding taking place, and of course all that crazy old equipment to gawk at. I was thinking it must be cool on a foggy night too.


  2. Great series of photos. (And to see that blue sky in the last one!) We have had nothing but rain for two months. Seems things are reversed.


    • Thanks – you can probably figure out what that 4th one is because I bet you see the same things in your wanderings They hung a decorative mesh thingie over the chain link fence to advertise the building. The bright sunlight helped.
