When Josh and I were deciding what color to paint our walls last spring, we decided that the perfect color would be a color called Elephantine. We made up the name, and of course never did find that color, and wound up with something blue-ish instead.

However… on the subject of Elephantine.. here are some pics of an elephant at the zoo!



Longest Eyelashes Ever


The better to hear you with..

More Animals!

Yup.. they just keep on coming.

tounge wagging

look into those eyes


And now… I bring you.. the bear. Watching this great animal was pretty amazing. He was lounging on this rock and as we watched.. got up.. and rolled over to face us… allowing me to take these photos of him. Thanks Bear!

bear! at the zoo!

They just want to play together

Zoological Garden

We meant to go to the zoo here in Seattle last year. But we never got around to it. As we were eating breakfast this morning, Josh said he knew what we were going to do this afternoon. Go to the zoo! We both love looking at the animals and I love taking photos. The weather was really nice for February, so it was perfect!

Here’s the first round of pics. Trust me, there’s more to come. Bears. Elephants. Birds. etc.


A Hawaiian Feel




Cable Car at Night

Cable Car, San Francisco.

When we were there in August, I think one of my favorite things Josh and I did was ride the cable car at night. It was so fun.. and romantic in a way. I can still remember the sound of the clanging as we drove around.

Powell & Market


I will keep posting San Francisco pictures. I Will! I have so many to work through, and I haven’t taken any Seattle pics lately.

Also, I love the Golden Gate Bridge. When Josh and I walked across it over Labor Day weekend, it was a long long walk (especially the walk to the bridge itsself from our hotel!) but a nice accomplishment.

Okay it’s settled. Josh and I will visit San Francisco again this year. Not sure exactly when, but it will happen. And so.. I’ve been looking through pics of the last trip I took there and editing some ones I haven’t gotten to.
