A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road and then put it into a video. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to reprise it. But I wanted to focus on a different area. So I decided to go to Marymoor Park, a large park in the area with a number of vantage points. I found two that struck me–so each week (unless I’m sick or other major factors intervene) I will be posting pictures of those two places, taken from the same vantage point. I invite you to come along on my year-long journey with me.
Week 49: We had glorious rain yesterday. I went out when it started near midnight the night before and sat in the rain, just breathing in the cooler air and the scent of water. The smoke’s died down thanks to some wind, and my heart is aching for those still facing the fires in British Columbia. While we’re not due for a good solid rainstorm like we get during autumn, winter and spring, the temperatures have cooled into the low 70s and it’s a relief to see the clouds return. Give me the gloom and the gray and the smell of rain on cedar any day. 🙂
