5% of each sale will be donated to the Rosendale Food Pantry.
Although I do not have a permanent home, and am in full on vagabond mode, I try not to forget where I am from. I also recognize that I am fortunate to be able to travel the way that I do. So, wherever I am, if someone purchases a photo from me directly, I will give 5% of the sale price to the Rosendale Food Pantry, which provides food to those who need it in the town that I grew up in.
Driving by Harvey Field one day, I saw a cool old plane in the corner of the property, and wanted to photograph it. Not about to mess with permissions issues on air fields, I looked them up and emailed them, and they let me come by and wander around and shoot what I wanted. It was lots of fun. There were plenty of cool, modern, brightly painted planes around. Of course I mostly was attracted to the ones in various states of disrepair.
This is the plane I saw from the road that prompted this trip – I was not disappointed!
As I mentioned in my post about Portland, Oregon, city photography hasn’t done much for me lately, but I did spend a day in Seattle with a woman named Mary, who a nice woman in New York put me in touch with. It’s been really cool how people have introduced me to others around the country who have shown me their part of the world.

I got bored and restless on a Friday afternoon, booked a motel room in Wenatchee, Washington, which I knew very little about, and headed out there, from Lake Stevens. Turned out the region is considered the Apple Capital of the World, and I remembered driving through there in 2010. I came back the next afternoon, and it was a good trip.

After settling in to my friends’ place in Lake Stevens, Washington, I took a day trip up to Deming to meet my mom’s cousin for the first time, on her beautiful property in the woods. Here are some shots from the drive and from her property and that area.
I believe this is a “Fargo” brand truck in Mount Vernon, Washington
I had the honor of being interviewed on the radio in Astoria, Oregon, and luckily had time to enjoy the drive and take some photos on the way up from the Portland area, and on the way back. And one photo in Astoria itself.
Never seen this before…a log car on a train in St Helens, Oregon
I took off from Lake Stevens, Washington to explore the Olympic Peninsula (And Olympic National Park) for 2 days, with a motel room for the night in Port Angeles, and returning to Lake Stevens on the 2nd day. Optimally I would have needed more like 5 days! There’s so much to see. But I did see some cool stuff, and enjoyed it, and may go back at some point.
