’16 Calendar: Nature Calls (Again)

Feb: Long-Eared Owl.

For the third edition of “Nature Calls,” every image was captured in the state of Washington.

Making calendars is not a business for me. I started a couple years ago because some friends asked me to. I make them the way I like them – spiral-bound with nice paper so the images pop and I can actually write on them. Also I use a printer I trust.

So the calendar is expensive to produce. Mine are $30 each. I also learned last year that they cost a lot to send – I get sturdy containers to protect the calendars and the postage is ridiculous – so I need to charge $5 more for shipping. You can avoid the shipping charge if you can meet me for delivery at least as close to me as Columbia City.

UPDATE: As of Dec. 10, I will accept orders for $36 each, and the calendars will be shipped only. Please be aware that shipping could take 5-10 days, depending on where it is shipped and when you order.

PayPal is the best way to do this; my account is my email address: gnbuzz @ comcast.net (without the spaces, of course). Please include the address to which you want the calendar(s) shipped.

If you want to pay another way, email me, but understand that this will add time to when you will receive your calendar.

Seattle Shows Its (Seahawk) Colors

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My wife Florangela got the brilliant idea that I ought to photograph various ways that Seattle was showing its Seahawk colors in advance of Saturday’s division playoff game here against the New Orleans Saints. I had planned on staying warm and dry, but the idea grew on me. So I’m presenting the images a couple ways – via slideshow above and individually below (so they can be viewed a little larger).

This effort, and especially its spirit, is dedicated to the memory of Fred Cordova, a critical supporter and mentor of mine, and voice, journalist and historian for the people.

Enjoy and go Hawks!

Sunset in Seattle

I had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee recently, so I’ve been unable to go out with my big lens. While I recover, I figured I’d work on landscape photography. My surgeon said I could be out in nature with heavy gear at the end of August.
