remarkably peaceful scene of wildflowers in tatoosh wilderness which I have selected as a sort of metaphor if you will, a representation of the relative peacefulness of our lives before tonight when Littlest Brother climbed out of bed all by himself

Well, it’s not as though life has been that peaceful with Littlest Brother. I covered myself when I referred to the peacefulness as a relative thing. As I believe I’ve alluded to recently, he is at times a bit of a snarly spitfire compared to Biggest Brother at the same age, which is a little like comparing a Great White Shark and a Whale Shark. But at least up until now he could be confined when he was in an unconscious state, albeit for certain limited hours of the day and night. That’s all over now. Sigh. He has pushed my parenting skills to the brink at times, there’s no doubt about that. But he also has been much more my little snuggly wuggly baby doll than Biggest Brother was. This image of snuggly wuggly flowers was taken in the Tatoosh Wilderness backcountry with my Nikkor 24-70. The backlighting gave me supreme options for shooting and I couldn’t resist isolating these Western Anemone in different ways, this exposure was at f2.8. I really love Western Anemone in the summertime! They always put a big smile on my face. I do understand that Nikkor lens is a tad ridiculous to schlep in combination with other glass on long days like I stupidly do because I have a brain the size of a gum-ball, but for a zoom it is just a beauty when shooting wide open. I hope you enjoy this my dear readers.

  1. I’m delighted to come over here and find that you have been writing quite a bit lately. Looking forward to reading your adventures. And I always did love a good metaphor.;-)

  2. Yes, I enjoy it! Always love the name “Tatoosh Range” – in my limited experience, it’s the fabulously jagged, distant peaks I see from Paradise on Rainier. (These guys make me smile, too).
