Darling Diptych :: Facedowns

Top:  Mo
Bottom: Brittany O

This week's diptych was fun!  Brittany suggested the idea a while back, you may recognize it from such blogs as I love facedowns and Facedowns.

You might be wondering, where is that cool wall with the octopus tentacles?  Well dear readers, that is the outside of Seattle's first distillery...Sound Spirits.  Cool right!?  Very.  

My friend Rachel and I decided to stop in Wednesday night for a taste and a tour of the small batch distillery located in Ballard.  Steven Stone, the owner, is super friendly and chatted us up while pouring us each a sample of Ebb+Flow, his single malt vodka made from Washington Barley.  This vodka was different from anything else I've tried, it's a bit sweet and very fragrant, great for sipping. The hint of citrus has me thinking it would make a great lemon-drop.  I decided to buy a bottle for my sister whose birthday is today, and will be celebrated tomorrow night...with lemon-drops!  (She won't see this before tomorrow.)

Not a vodka fan?  Worry not, Steven is currently working up recipes for Gin, Aquavit and Absinthe.  He was kind enough to let us sample a bit of each.  Rach was a BIG fan of the Gin...I now know what to get her for her birthday!

It's a miracle I didn't  end up facedown myself after all the tasting!

Happy Friday everyone!  It's been nothing but rain and fog around here lately, so blue seems fitting.

Mic + Somaly :: The Wedding


As promised, here are some photos from the Castro's wedding over Labor Day Weekend.  It was such a fun wedding with tons of dancing.  Somaly is a 'long lost' high school friend I reconnected with via facebook, you may remember her and Mic from their engagement photos. It was great to get to hang out with her all day and chat with some other old friends I hadn't see in years.

Thanks to Brittany for second shooting and hanging out with me all day!

p.s. - My blogger template is currently under construction, so things might look a little bare for a while.

Darling Diptych :: Childhood

It has been a crazy, busy last couple of weeks!  Last weekend I was lucky enough to photography a beautiful, super fun wedding in Seattle with the help of my diptych partner Brittany!  I should have some photos of the event up on Monday.  

That being said, I didn't feel all that creative with my diptych this week.  Although it did give me the chance to try out my new white balance lens cap.  I like it!

Brittany's Diptych :: Before + After

Diptych and refinishing project by: Brittany O

Turns out I'm a big flake and in the chaos of my day job and my side photo projects, I totally forgot about my weekly date with Brittany.  Fortunately she has come through with her own diptych, showcasing her talent for refinishing furniture!  She has shared her flair for this kind of thing a few other times on her blog, like when she spiffed up Betty.  Check it out!

Hope you all have a fun weekend.

When I grow up I want to be a forester

Fever Ray a.k.a. Karin Dreijer Andersson has been playing on my itunes a lot lately.  Ever since I first heard her on my radio station I couldn't get enough.  I played her debut album over, and over, and over again!  If Gaga has 'little monsters', I'd be Fever Ray's booming wallflower.

A few more bridal party shots and shots from the reception of this "mountain casual" Idaho Wedding.  I can't say enough how much fun the whole wedding weekend was.  It was so incredibly bright and colorful!!
