The second tulip photo I’ve had as my Saturday Snapshot – This was the first. The first one was taken in the second week of May; this was taken in my parents’ front yard when I was at home visiting for Easter.
Change of pace from the Tacoma pictures: here’s a photo of the Grand Canyon taken in 2008. There was a little rainstorm over part of it when I visited with my family on the way to ASU. It wasn’t raining on our side, but there were some fierce little breezes that messed up our hair in all the family photos.
It was a gorgeous clear day, so I biked down to Titlow Park to watch the sun set over Puget Sound. I also took my iPad along, and did a quick speedpaint of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge at sunset. It took somewhere around 30-45 minutes, and was tricky since the light kept changing as the sun moved closer to the horizon.
Once again, the uphill bike ride home was killer. The park is great incentive, though – near enough and pretty enough to make it worth the exercise on the return trip. Might this become a self-imposed workout routine? Only if there are more clear, sunny days like this one!
