This week I have been cleaning and decorating for Christmas, and it has become clear that I have a serious tchotchke addiction…sigh. It’s time to let some stuff find other homes.

Photo 364…

Day two of Photo 365. I’m kinda kicking myself for labeling my first photo of the year as #365, ’cause now I have to do a backward countdown. It’s sorta like going down a slide or a ski hill backwards! Sorry my friends but we’re stuck with it.

It’s an amazingly beautiful December 30th here in Ocean Park, and we just took a walk with the dogs. I slung my new Nikon around my neck and delighted in its light weight. I used to struggle with my Pentax ’cause it’s much heavier and I’ve got a sensitive neck.

I don’t know about you, but I think winter in the northwest is a completely dreary time of year for outdoor photography. There are only so many wet cedar branches and holly bushes worthy of digital memory space–let’s get real…there aren’t ANY that are worthy.

Understandably, we northwesterners turn to our walking companions for subject matter, but when they (AKA your unwilling teenage daughter) threaten to block any photographs posted and report you to the Facebook mafia, you end up right back where you started, taking indoors shots of home decor.
