Sanity Check

I have posted quite a few images here on DA, so for your sanity I would suggest you use the folders in my gallery for best results.


But still taking photos! Camera

Monday I was home and hiked around Whatcom Falls Park in Bellingham. It was a record breaking warm day, getting up to 69 degrees F. And I still have more photos from that outing to process and up-load. =P (Razz) 

Wednesday I was in Spokane, the other side of the state. Only a few dawn shots.

Thursday I was back on the west side of the state again, in Vancouver, Washington. On the way north from there I took a break at the Gee Creek rest area. I am still processing the photos from that stop.

Friday morning I was in Bend, Oregon. where there was snow on the ground, and the roads were slippery with ice. On my way north from there I stopped for a break at PS Ogden State Park and Overlook. Many, many photos taken! So far, I have only up-loaded the ground squirrels photos, but there are more to come!  Dancing Squirrel

Tonight I am heading back across the state to be in Clarkston, Washington, in the morning. So, I have to go get some sleep! Sleep

I still have a back-log of photos to process and up-load, but that will have to wait on another day. :| (Blank Stare) 

Well, till later! Stay safe! :D (Big Grin)

A B’hampster (Resident of Bellingham, Washington State, USA. Transplanted from Binghamton, New York, USA)

USN (Retired) 1984-2004; Aviation Fire Control Technician (AQ) 1984-1991(O level), then rate combined into Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) 1991-1996 (O level), 1996-2004 (I level).

dragonwooddesigns.deviantart.c… is my lady wife of these many years. Is my new stock account. (Started 18 January, 2016)

My interests are broad and varied, encompassing many fields of study.

I like to make knives, weapons, and tools. Most of my knives are sculpture in the multi-mediums of metal and wood, plus leather for the sheaths. My skills include metal, wood, and leather-working. I also work with decorative knots and braids. Years ago I was apprenticed to a weapon and sword smith through the SCA, but I could not stay with it due to being on active sea duty in the Navy. When I left the SCA I was a journeyman metal smith. Adding to my skills I have also taken classes in metal casting, tool making, and jewelry smithing.

Recycling is a big part of acquiring my materials. I pick up old lawnmower and saw blades to cut up and use for my knife blanks. I will go to my local recycling company and purchase pieces of copper, brass, and other metals for projects. I will also buy old tools and drill-bits and refurbish or re-purpose them. Some of the wood I use comes from old trim molding and pallets.

Along the way I have discovered that I like photography. I started out just wanting to take pictures of family and the knives I had made. Now I am having a blast getting out and taking photographs of the world around me.

I also draw and sketch, but mostly for weapon and tool concepts. I am not that good at drawing people or animals. I am old-school; I use mechanical pencils and pens on paper. Only recently have I been trying out different drawing programs.

If you have any questions or observation, feel to send them my way.

Which color combination do you like?
