lensbaby(love).

slowly but surely, i am getting the hang of this new toy.  i chose a basic subject (a park) for my real stab at it.  the lensbaby gives photos an almost dream-like quality — i especially love the blurred and muted light effects.  stay tuned for more!

the thing i miss most about home is the scenery; d.c. is seriously lacking the sweeping mountain and sea views, and a hike here is nothing like a hike up snoqualmie or rainier. i captured this image on one such outing with two of my old (and favorite) campaign colleagues on a chilly spring day and i just can’t get enough of that green.
