Edmonds on a Summer Day

This just makes me want to ask you to come visit Edmonds in the Summer sun. Each and every day is a new day when you are enjoying the view from the Brackett’s Landing Jetty. On a clearer day, our couple would be able to admire the Olympic Mountains in the distance. But not today. […]

Space Needle With Green Trees

Well, since I posted a close up of the white-colored Space Needle a couple of days ago, I thought I should do the same with the green-colored Space Needle of recent history. The green “Trees” paint job was a result of a local contest. It was there for a while before I even realized that […]

SunSpotting

OK, maybe I like this one better than yesterday’s picture. The sun is setting behind the hills and eventually into Puget Sound near Lynnwood Washington. Sometimes such a simple thing becomes rather awesome at just the right moment. Sunset over a house, but the effects go on for miles into the sky. Photo: Taken near […]
