We flew back to Seattle on Saturday after a two week trip to California — we saw friends and ate great food in San Francisco, then went a bit north to the Russian River for a few days, and then south to Monterey for a few days.

And, I'm sure you'll be surprised, in the process I shot a lot of photos.

I'm still editing them down, but I thought I'd start with a few of the photos I shot on the street while we were hiking across San Francisco. It's so great to get a new city to shoot in, and I had a lot of fun getting to shoot there.

Bloedel 6 (After Mary Randlett)

Posted by David on Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 6:00 AM.

dae-20110501-9512-Edit.jpg

That would be my favorite Northwest landscape photographer, Mary Randlett. Mostly in response to this river rock, although I'm pretty sure she's shot at the Bloedel Reserve.


Sophia Katt, on Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 7:41 AM:

From a historylink.com article on Randlett:

"In 1986, she earned $4,000 for photographing the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island, to capture the essence of the place. The photos illustrated another of Kreisman's books, The Bloedel Reserve: Gardens in the Forest, published by The Arbor Fund in Seattle. Prentice Bloedel, whose home the Reserve had been, had helped Randlett in the past by buying an enlarger for her darkroom. His daughter, Virginia Wright, had given Randlett money to frame photographs for her shows."

I like Randlett's work a lot. Glad to know that you are a fan too!

dae-20101215-4645.jpg

While we were in Hawai'i, we visited the excellent Bishop Museum. The Bishop was a standard school trip when I was growing up, and though I loved it then, it's nothing like experiencing it as an adult.

The collections are excellent, and excellently curated. There's so much material that it's frankly overwhelming; I'd love to visit over the course of a week and do one floor a day.

While we were there we followed a hallway I hadn't seen before by the elevators and discovered that there was a whole other section of the museum I had no idea existed, dedicated to other places and cultures of the Pacific Ocean. We stuck our heads in, and ran out again, for fear of becoming completely overloaded.

We were there just long enough for me to grab this photo of this beautiful tiki from the Marquesas. Not, mind you, long enough for me to take a photo of the display card, so I could attribute it properly... my apologies to both the Bishop and the people of the Marquesas.

Winter Sun

Noise To Signal Issue 4:

Around this time of year in Seattle, we become desperate to see the sun. A slighly less gray evening — or perhaps by some miracle a bit of sun — causes crazed, massive early exoduses from downtown offices. Those days are the exception, though. We’ve been known to have precipitation for nearly forty days and forty nights at a stretch. Even when it’s not raining, the sky is usually a featureless expanse of gray.Anything we can do to beat back the…

It looks like a tree of potatoes.

Are they edible fruit? Assuming you don't get killed by one falling on your head.

The Cannonball Tree (Couroupita guianensis) is one of the weirder specimens in the Foster Botanical Garden, and as such has always been one of my favorites.

Because while I don't love snow, I do love the weirdo light it lays on top of the city.

It took me a moment to recognize what this was. It just immediately looked like heavy, worn leather to me - like some leather jacket dropped somewhere. But I couldn't find the sleeves or any other parts of it! But I was intrigued. It's a cool picture. And then I saw your botanical garden theme and the leaves just jumped right out at me after that :-)

Starting off the year thinking warm thoughts

The family and I spent a week on O'ahu in December, with remarkably lucky timing: It had been raining hard in Hawai'i before we got there, and it was flooding the morning we left Seattle. Our week was gorgeous: 80° days, trade winds, and lots of sun. And then the morning we flew back to Seattle... Honolulu was flooding.

I actually took what was for me surprisingly few photos overall, but we did spend a great morning in the Foster Botanical Garden and I was quite busy there.

So let's spend January in the garden, shall we? What else is there too look at here in the northern hemisphere?

Above, clouds over the beautiful Mānoa valley. This is the view I grew up with.



Happy new year!
