I like to back-pedal through the images each year and savor the memories they conjure. As I do, I note the photos I really like, or think are notable in some artistic way. Here’s my reposting of favorites from this year past.
From November 8: I stitched together 3 separate photos to get this image. This composite doesn’t do justice to the “live” event. It was a breath-taking moment.
From November 3: I love the color gradients, and the channel marker gives it that Chesapeake Bay character.
From October 8: The afternoon light occasioned this dramatic photo.
From September 22: One of a series of sunset photos I took with our Sony point-n-shoot in Western Washington, overlooking Vancouver BC, and San Juan Islands.
From September 7: Kids do funny things. . .
From August 9: Nothing really remarkable about the event – I just like the light in this photo, and all the sailing dinghies following the mother boat like ducklings.
From July 27: Looking Into Rockhold Creek, overlooking Herrington Harbor North (Marina).
From July 25: From my wife’s studio – one of my favorites – “Bury the Rail!” watercolor, 4.5″ x 6.75″
From July 21: Afternoon sail on Herring Bay with a classic plastic – wood spars and dog house.
From July 8: “Cay of Sea” in her hot-weather canvas: Bimini, side cockpit curtains and wind scoop are essential warm-weather gear.
From 21 June, two images here: the photo, and my wife’s pencil rendition of it:
These folks were having a great time dipping crabs
Not all the details are the same, as you can see. Ruth used this as a departure point.
From June 6: Kind of a scary photo!
From May 15: How to set grommets – Step 1, hit thumb with hammer. Step 2, Say “Ouch. That really hurt” or words to that effect.
From April 25: Newly reinstalled engine, with freshly cleaned and painted engine compartment. Ah. . . this makes my soul feel good.
And that’s it. There are more photos, of course, but none that struck my fancy as worth reposting. Have a Happy New Year everyone. Next post will illustrate re-wicking my trawler lamp/cabin heater.
