Welcome to my Blog. Last year I said goodbye to my Google Blog that I've had since 2009, however, I'm keeping the tab on my menu with a link to it. I hope to post more often in 2023 sharing some of my portrait work I have done recently of events, families and professional headshots for many local businesses here in Port Townsend.
Some browsers may not be able to load the Blog 2009-2021, which is why I'm starting this new Blog page my website.
Oh my gosh, the 30th Port Townsend Uptown Street Fair was last weekend. This is one of the many fun events happening each summer in Port Townsend. The event includes a two-block parade. This is matched in distance to the Port Townsend Farmers Market opening ceremony in April which offers a goat parade.
This yearly event celebrates the Port Townsend Uptown Historic District. I’m not sure how many people attended this year, but before Covid, as many as 2000 showed up for this all-day event which included the local Farmers’ Market. The local band, the Unexpected Brass Band put on quite a show as they always do. The Port Townsend Arts & Craft Fair was also happening along with all sorts of fun art activities for the kids. The weather was perfect and it was a lovely day to be out and about in Port Townsend.
You can view more of my Event Photography that I have taken over the years by visiting my website. I also have lots of colorful images of boats and flowers from many of the Wooden Boat Festivals I have photographed in a Gallery called Colorful Port Townsend.
I'm working on some major updates on my home which has had me sorting through spaces representing different phases in my life. I found and scanned this simple watercolor I did years ago inspired by a postcard with an image by Winslow Homer. I was so new to painting I used plain typing paper, which I should have tapped down, and a set of six of those inexpensive Crayola watercolors. One day when I'm not consumed with my photography business I think I'll try doing some more watercolors. I also would love to dig out my basket-making supplies from my days with my business Natures Baskets by Deja. I have pounds of beautiful Cedar bark, sweetgrass and pine needles just waiting for me to turn them into some beautiful basket. So much to do and so little time.
I bet I'm not alone it working too much and not playing enough. I need to find time for some fun art projects I know I would enjoy doing once I got started. What are you putting off doing with your creative energy?

Today is National Doctors' Day. What a wonderful opportunity to thank the JHC Doctors specifically, Nurses, and all the healthcare providers/staff who have worked so hard to provide our community with care during COVID-19. Jefferson Healthcare celebrated Doctors' Day by sharing a thank you to the staff in The Leader today. I have had the pleasure of photographing all but one provider on this page plus other JHC headshots since 2016.
