HDR images

I hardly use HDR software; I usually combine two exposures of one image in Photoshop if necessary. But this time I tried Photomatix Pro 5 since I shot three bracketed images below.

The Piano at Shoreline

One Sunny Winter Day

I followed this couple on one sunny winder day.

Deception Pass Whidbey Island

WA State Ferries Twitter Photo Contest

I tweeted @WSFerries #WSFcontest with this photo (above) I shot in 2007 that I found in my flicker.  Just a day before we went to Whidbey Island, I noticed a Shoreline Area News post “Washington State Ferries is having a Twitter photo… Continue Reading →

EMP museum and Affinity

EMP building from the Space Needle elevator coming down in March 2007 Finally we went to the EMP museum at Seattle Center when my husband friend’s and his family came to Seattle this week!


I created this image after I saw Akira Kurosawa’s “Dreams”  (after I saw the film for the second time in 2012, to be more precise). After three Fukushima nuclear power reactors exploded on March 2011, people were talking about “Mount Fuji in… Continue Reading →

Wood duck

This is my first time to see this kind of duck at the Twin Ponds Park in Shoreline.

Telephoto Zoom Lens

I wrote about negative space as background in  White Space Negative Space. But you can photograph subject(s) as negative space — just shoot your subject as a silhouette.

Dog Treats

First thing I noticed was “Dog Treats” when I began to walk toward Shoreline Farmers Market today.

Born and Grow up in Twin Ponds Park

“Born and Grow up in Twin Ponds Park” — it’s not about me. It is about ducklings I met at Twin Ponds Park (Shoreline, WA) in June 2014!

Male and Female Red-Winged Blackbirds

If you want to see male and female red-winged blackbirds, go to a wetland where Typha angustifolia grow.

Bee and Food Chain Risk

The human race is really starting to feel the consequences of their actions. One area we are waking up to is the massive amount of pesticides we spray (especially in North America) on our food that has not only been… Continue Reading →
