  • 03/12/18--11:13: The coming flood
  • It took me a minute to figure out what was so different as I headed to the Northernmost area of my favorite Sunday spot. The salmon restoration project seems to be close to done, and the mobile offices and heavy equipment are all gone. I spent a lot of time exploring the lower parts that I'm pretty sure will be flooded soon, since they won't be accessible much longer.

    I'm glad I stopped to get video of these two, their friends flying by made some very interesting sounds.

    Setting out, I thought the skies would be too clear to get a good time lapse, but brought the cameras anyway. Turned out to be a good choice.

  • With the time change, much of my walk this morning was spent in the dark. The sunrise came quickly at the end and was really beautiful for a few minutes. Just enough time to play around with some panoramas and a new favorite technique I just came up with, where I save a photo (cropped if necessary), save a flipped version, then use the layout function in Instagram to stitch the two together. Here's today's example of that.

    IMG_20180313_072320_924



    It's a little odd to me that Instagram, which is certainly the most popular photo-sharing app, doesn't have an easy way to share panoramas and doesn't support 360-degree photos at all. It's possible using other programs and sites to slice up panoramas into a set of photos so you can scroll across them in an IG post, but I don't think there's one you can use on the phone for that yet. Here's what I do sometimes when I feel like sharing a panorama right away.

    IMG_20180313_071559_531

    That's the layout function again with the panorama in the center and two shots of the pavement.

    Here's the rest of the lovely morning.

    It's not really practical to try to catch the sunrise in a time lapse at the walk site right now, but I got a nice one once I got home. It was a lot longer than this, but I like to keep them to a minute or less because that's the Instagram limit. I could have shown the whole thing faster, but it was a bit too fast.

  • I've been going to the Island pretty consistently on Sundays but was in the mood for Japanese Gulch today. I need to go there more. I got out of the habit once I started the time lapses, but there are a couple of good spots there to leave a camera.

    And here's a new shirt that came this week. My friend Mike has a Spreadshirt shop that came up in FB memories recently, so I grabbed it. My next tattoo is going to be a squid, so I'm kind of on a squid kick.

  • I walked a lot this week because the pool was closed for maintenance. Thankfully my sore foot's finally getting better after a couple of weeks. Of course it started feeling better the day before the doctor appointment I scheduled about it. Isn't that always the way?

    Between the darkness and the rain, there wasn't tons to see, though.



    I haven't looked in my photo album to confirm, but it seems like there's a lot more paint on this now. I love the colors.

    IMG_20180328_064712_668

    That old post-walk view at the dog park. This will get much greener in the next few months.

    20180328_070539_HDR

    Over by the river, there's a new trail behind the new houses. I might use it in the future if it eventually goes around the entire perimeter, but it won't be worth it otherwise. I don't really like feeling I'm on display while walking.

    20180329_065908_HDR

    Looks like someone had a nice time at the marina the night before I was there.

    IMG_20180330_064422_897

    I hoped to get this shot right as a ripple formed from a raindrop, but had no luck. Still liked the way it looked without it.

    IMG_20180330_065830_393

    Our vertical garden has reached new heights and lengths. I already need to add more hooks and stretch it out more. That's a cluster of ionanthas hanging off the vine hook. I'm keeping it in the kitchen because plants in there do so much better than the ones in my room.

    IMG_20180328_181641_655

    The floor in there is as popular as ever for synchronized sleeping.

  • 04/07/18--16:03: The end and the beginning
  • After 18 months of sessions, we finally finished my sleeve back in February. It was too swollen and bloody that day, though, so I didn't get good pictures with Jimmy until I went back yesterday.

    My amazing sleeve by Jimmy Walters

    I went back yesterday to start on the other arm, but that didn't end up happening. He had some very valid concerns about my concept and its placement, and there definitely wasn't time to design the alternative. Luckily, we had other ideas brewing. Here's the outcome from first session for my neon '80s fantasy back piece!

    We started my backpiece

    I always imagined I'd have both arms completely covered before starting on my back. Being flexible and spontaneous really paid off, I love what we've done so far.

    EDIT:
    I'm susceptible to very weird earworms. Because I have a tattoo with keytars, this is now stuck in my head.

  • Here's what I got up to last week. I've been super busy and the next work week will be even busier. I'll consider it an opportunity to shine.

    IMG_20180401_061003_926


    Easter and April Fool's Day (the same day this year) were lovely. As is often the case, I did a nice loop around the future salmon habitat at Langus.

    I made sure to swim three times (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) since I'll have at least a week off because of the new tattoo. I couldn't make it out Tuesday so that ended up being a yoga day. Surprisingly, there was time Thursday for a major walk, so I went out to Langus again.

  • 04/10/18--14:53: Swamp Lantern Festival.
  • Had a very lovely time with lisaloopner on Saturday at the Swamp Lantern Festival put on by the Northwest Stream Center. I had no idea there was such a cool wetland so close to where we used to live in South Everett!

  • 04/11/18--16:27: Blow me down
  • When I went to Langus last week, I spotted a small sign on an onramp mentioning it'd be closed Sunday, so I searched for events in town when I got home. It was the half marathon. I figured I'd stay very far away from it, and chose Japanese Gulch instead. That turned out to be a good decision, as I ended up finding some previously-inaccessible passages to large areas I'd never seen before. Thankfully I had my new multitool I bought to carry in my hydration pack; the pliers were very handy for grabbing thorny vines to snap them and move them out of my way.

    https://instagram.com/p/BhUJvT2HKns






    I feel bad for the marathon runners and walkers, the wind was pretty intense. It was nice to be mostly shielded from it in the woods.

    https://instagram.com/p/BhT-EoHHKxg


    I was able to see water from a spot on the Eastern slope that I hadn't seen it from before.

    20180408_070443

    And I found my way back to this spot, which I'd only seen once or twice before.

    20180408_071142

    The ballfields up top and the newest warehouse building.

    IMG_20180408_072227_778
    IMG_20180408_072758_010

    What a crowd.

    https://instagram.com/p/BhUJdVtHeJb


    Another abandoned car, bringing the total I know about in the gulch to two.

    IMG_20180408_080621_195

    IMG_20180408_081159_074
    IMG_20180408_083221_741

    Had to mute this one as it was loud enough that I probably would have really annoyed anyone who played it unsuspecting. At first I thought I was walking toward a large HVAC system but realized what it really was in time to get my phone ready.

    https://instagram.com/p/BhUBq14Hiar


    I didn't want to take the same way back down that I took up because of the mud, but ended up choosing a path that was way worse. I slipped in the mud a lot, but it was actually wet grass that made me fall into the mud. I thought I wasn't hurt at all, but three days later my right arm is sore from catching myself. It's much better than it was Monday, but still tender.

    IMG_20180408_091119_310

    Passersby have ruined my shots before, but this is the first time the wind did it.
