Kate Veitch, my little aussie friend and author of two amazing books, will be doing a reading at Elliot Bay Book store this Monday July 19th at 7pm from her most recently published book "Trust". Nobody likes an empty audience. If you wish to be highly entertained and exposed to a wonderful book and read, please come! Here is a great interview with her that gives a good idea of what to expect from the lovely Ms. Kate:

Shedding Light

Here's a peek at a project I have been working on of dogs shadows and reflections. I put together this book for a book contest (along with the help of the impeccable taste of Ms. Hayes who has that design flair covered). The book takes a bit to down load and if the pages are white, that means the photo did not load yet. Let me know what you think!

Rudy Tooty

Tomorrow is the 5th anniversary of having to say goodbye to my first dog pal since I have tried to be an adult. Rudy Roy was his name. Everything I know about dog I learned from him. He found us on July 4th 1995. We kept him knowing who he belonged to but not wanting to return him for ethical reasons. We became fugitives from the law. Within a month, we moved from a condo to a house. Two years later I became a dog photographer. So here's to Mr. Rudy, my dog poet, my red dog, my Blaze. I loved that dog.

Balls I chucked out at Marymoor after he died. 

One of the last photos I took in May. He was 10yrs old. We had no idea he was sick yet.
