A few years ago, my aunt came down with a pretty serious illness. My grandmother asked if I’d come by my aunt’s beloved garden and take some photos of it to present to her as a gift–something she could look at to remind her of home if she was in the hospital. Of course I said yes, and one day me and my grandmother snuck into her backyard and took the pictures. The photos came out a little more abstract that either of us expected, but I was really happy with the results.

Long story short, I gave about 100 photos to my grandma to make into a book and she gave it to my aunt. She loved it. (And she’s doing fine now). Happy ending, yay family.

Quick little introduction to the new page: I started this so I could add more photos and design work, basically make my website less static than before. Yes, that means I’ll be updating more than once every three years. I haven’t finalized the branding or the design (typical designer dilemma, designing for oneself), but I didn’t want to keep delaying the launch as it was unproductive. Expect to see the fleshed out design in the near future.

These photos are from the beautiful Cape Disappointment State Park, which is down in the very southwest corner of Washington State on the Pacific Coast. You’ll see a lot of pictures from the Northwest on this site, why? Because it’s the best place on Earth. The Northwest, not this site 🙂
