So as to not bombard a ton of posts with photos of my trip to Ocean Shores, I’ll make a gallery here. It’s just a nice little compilation of some of my favorite photos that I took. This was a nice little weekend getaway and relaxation time to calm down, re-coop and re-calibrate from stress of life. I enjoyed being able to just go and soak in the atmosphere about the ocean and just how peaceful and also powerful energy around the ocean.∗
I’m posting more photos than usual, probably because of a type of nostalgia. It’s fun looking back on all the fun photos I’ve taken (or gorgeous, or nice..etc) over the last 10 years. Throughout the history of my sharing photos on this blog, there have been a tiny minority I took on my cell phone (iPhone 4 or 6). I don’t actually like taking lots of photos on my phone for big subjects, or trips. But for small things–or my cats–cell phone works great. In fact, all the photos of my cats–Rose & Thorin–here are from my phone. I prefer using my digital camera.
I went, 2 weekends ago, to the MoPOP (formerly EMP) in Seattle & enjoyed a weekend full of nerdy goodness and all sorts of geekery. I’ll admit that I generally do this kind of thing when I’m stressed & need some relaxation and a good time. See, immersing myself in my own nerdy/geeky interests makes me happy, and helps me feel better.
It was a lot of fun, obviously. But it was also kind of nice to bring myself back into those nerd-doms and geek points that have made me happy for so long. There was a lot of Star Trek, Star Wars, LOTR and other fun things for me to see, which is always great fun. Just so I can share the fun of my weekend, here’s a few of my favorite photos.
