Half of the team is back in Seattle wandering the Locks on a beautiful evening. It’s pretty, but it’s no Sedona. - T #envious #Seattle #ballardlocks #sunset #canal via Instagram http://ift.tt/1xRqtTT

Amtrak’s cafe car roof displays Washington’s peninsula nicely. I believe the Eastern edge of the map shows the route for most of our train trip. #amtrakcascades #bistrocar #map #nwblog #WA #traintravel #latergram via Instagram http://ift.tt/1w3UvPG

Just a quick one. This sweet dog visited us last weekend, so I just had to pull out my camera. I haven’t experimented much with pet photography, but this cutey may have spoiled me if I ever get into it! She was so calm and still for the photos!

Last year’s self-portrait project has been replaced by a monthly stock photo project. This month’s theme was suggested by Tumblr’s Sara, of saraplainandtall. It was a winter/ rain suggestion, which go hand in hand here. My vision was of bright little boots in a reflective puddle, but with kids, you often just have to go with the flow. You can see more from this shoot on my blog

My last post featured my final self-portrait/ group photo, after a monthly series of ridiculous photo shoots. This one, however, was the best! Several friends came out to be in the photo, along with the gingerbread house that I spent a few weeks working on. The result was awesome! This photo just shows the close ups of everyone in the photo. The full image is really cool too!

See how this photographic illusion was done:

Using forced perspective photography, we made this gingerbread house look like a fun new building in Seattle! Thanks to all who helped out. You were all awesome! Happy holidays!
