Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.

    Sounds neat, I might just have to check it out sometime. Great capture by the way! (c;

  • Thank you, Jodi. We had our class reunion here and what a night it was. One of the ladies from our class and her husband were members of this dinner club. Also, I am good friends with the artist who had done all of the murals around this restaurant. You can see a sample of some of her work over the french doors. From the outside, you would never know this amazing restauant was here… it just looks like an old warehouse. Quite amazing and truly one on Seattle’s best kept secrets.
