Up Where It Rains

Forks, Washington, up on the Olympic Peninsula, was a seriously depressed, mildewed-around-the-edges remnant of the logging industry when I last visited six or seven years ago. Ten feet (!) of rainfall a year will do that, I guess. Then the "Twilight" books happened, written by an Arizona author who'd never set foot on the Peninsula, and the nutty fans and their wallets arrived. Both were quickly embraced by the fine citizens of Forks, who know a good thing when they see it. Yay for glittery-vampire-inspired commerce!

Beached Pebble

Perversely, breaking my favorite camera has rekindled the urge to shoot things and post them here.

RIP: 2006-2010

My Canon PowerShot S2 met with a tragic end today. After four years of accompanying me around the world and serving without complaint; after being baked, frozen, bashed and jostled; after suffering sand, salt, snowdrifts and saguaros; and after taking the vast majority of the shots on this site, it has finally sustained mortal injury. Farewell, old friend. You will be missed.
