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 50: So today was the eclipse and I took these pictures about half an hour before it happened here. We had about 90% coverage here, according to the news, and the light was very strange starting about an hour before hand. Notice the odd tinge here–it was as though the color of the sky was still blue but oddly dark and vibrant. Two more weeks and this year of pictures is over. I’m still looking for a new place for the next one. I love posting weekly pics–it’s an odd little ritual that is strangely comforting.
