New camera -

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

Okay, I now have an old digital camera that got passed to me when the owner acquired a new one, but golly, it works!  I am no photographer.  However, I point and click and this thing comes up with amazing photos.  A perfect summer hobby.  As my 4th Mudflat book will be released in October, I decided to put together a cover idea to send to the cover artist to show her the main themes of the story.  And in the background I wanted something typical of Seattle.  So I hopped the ferry and snapped some pictures and hey!  Some came out quite well.  I sent them to her and she didn’t use the exact photos, but she used the general shapes, sky and building relationships, that sort of thing.  She has the talent and the artist’s eye.  I have the camera.  Here are a couple of the photos.  Let me add, the ferry ride is fun even without a camera because the views are gorgeous and the clam chowder is Ivar’s own.

April Gardens -

Monday, April 20th, 2009

When I was doing research for my novel, Deja Vu Lover, I needed information about events in 1925.  And so I collected several magazines from that era.  One had this beautiful garden picture on the cover.  Lindsay’s charming description and pictures of gardens reminded me of this.  Here it is to share.  My grandmother had a similar picture in a frame on her wall.  Wish I had it now.

 

This certainly is the time to enjoy gardens.  All the trees are blooming in the Seattle area.
