Many recent travels have been focused on photography, but I have a few projects other projects too. One such project has been tracking down local indigenous history. Last year I took the family to Lummi Island […]Read more "The Hunt for ‘She Who Watches’"
Today’s outing doubled as exercise and outdoor time for the niece and dog.
