Making New Year’s resolutions is typically not my thing. But for 2016 I made a year-long commitment to take (at least) one photograph each day—a ‘365 Project.’ Some photographers give themselves “rules” for their 365—only shots of family, new technique each week or some other focus for their project.

I shook my head in disbelief. I was looking out over the water toward my very own Puget Sound. Life could be a […]

The water, the mountains, and forest paths all in one spectacular setting.
