I accepted Google's invitation to post (I'm a Google Local Guide and one of the photographers Google trained for their local-business directory) some of my favorite places around Snohomish.  This is only three of many.  (That's why we decided to live here!)
These are the places that make Snohomish home. Let’s make sure all the local businesses we love are #OnTheMap at gybo.com

Northwest Business Photography just joined Manta Small Business Forum.  I wanted to see what other commercial photographers are helping Snohomish area businesses implement Google Street View style interactive panorama tours of their businesses.

2015 Monroe WA Kids' Fishing Day.  Thanks to the Monroe Lions, Trout Unlimited, Hagen Grocery and others.   #monroe   #kidsfishing   #monroelions   #troutunlimited   #hagengrocery  
With several sponsors, including Trout Unlimited, Monroe Lions Club and Hagen Grocery, there were lots of fish, plenty volunteer help, various snacks...and Kids' Smiles Unlimited. I spoke with one of the organizers who said he had personally counted the many dozens of over-three pound trout ...

Interesting article +Lee Alley on your bee hives. I have seen a few people in our area have hives, but I must say, I am afraid of being stung.

GLAMOR PORTRAITS OF A LEEZ.BZ HONEYBEE

Close-up images of one of my honeybees taking a highly deserved break from foraging fall's last pollen morsels.  Fall is a great time for outdoor macro photo's of bees in the golden natural light.

LEE ALLEY AS HONEYBEE SOCIAL SCIENTIST

I study the social behavior of leaderless honeybee workgroups (i.e., colonies), to help make sense of human group behavior.  

With 50,000 honeybees spending all winter trapped by the cold inside a totally dark hive, they still manage to cooperate in performing various functions of housekeeping, queen-tending, food management, temperature control, and intruder-protection.  Yet, they accomplish all that cooperation and harmonious work without any one in control authority, no communications infrastructure, no bylaws or laws, no court system to punish misbehavior, no congressbees to get paid by special interests to set rules.

So I got into beekeeping after observing decades of leadership/management troubles at dozens of universities and large corporations, while hearing that the lowly honeybee is capable of organizing, cooperating, co-existing peacefully, and accomplishing great collective productivity without laws, police, anyone in charge, nor infrastructures.

And, I can say confidently now, that I understand much better our human weaknesses that foretell organizational failure, after studying the social life of honeybee colonies.  It is a fascinating perspective, with great lessons in cooperation without leaders.

Story
Tagline
"It feels like actually being there"
Introduction

I worked many happy years with university Boards of Regents (TX, AZ, WI) and had a wonderfully long career as professor of physics, computer science and engineering.   For the next eight years I had a real estate business.  After moving to Washington state in 2013, I founded a commercial photography company, Northwest Business Photography, in affiliation with Google.  We help realtors and local businesses offer interactive online tours of indoor spaces using Google's Street View technologies.  We also hold an FAA certification to -legally- provide aerial photography of neighborhood amenities and shopping centers as well as individual buildings and land parcels.

In daily personal life, I am a husband, grandfather, beekeeper and honeybee social scientist, community volunteer in the Snohomish area, owner/trainer of pack goats, tinkering engineer/scientist, vermiculture gardener and adventure photographer.

Bragging rights
I once divided by zero, with infinitely surprising results.

It's another Home Depot. Lots of stuff. Crowded isles at Christmas time. Seems to carry more consumer, light hardware/lumber, appliances etc than the wider selection of lumber and building materials at nearby Lowes. Like most big box stores, don't expect to get much professional trandesman advice from floor staff here. (For advice, we go to a local hardware store in Snohomish, where prices seem a bit higher, but several deeply qualified experts are always on hand in most departments.)

We just keep going back. Frank and Diane have created a wonderful community gathering place. The open mic nights are a real entertaining hoot. The atmosphere is completely laid back, clientele and staff are very friendly and informal. And if you're new to the area, go hang out here. You'll meet a lot of very nice locals who are friendly to visitors. (I'm looking forward to adding the 5th star when a food service is added.)

Very fine, but small, retail store featuring local art and crafts. Extremely friendly and helpful volunteer staffers who know the area well. This is one store among others in Washington state, all under the non-profit Grow Washington business development organization. If you seek local lore about the Cascades, "Sky Valley" area, or just good solid rural life close to Seattle, stop in. I did. I'm going back.

We've had this fantastic BBQ at some catered local events. Joel, the founder, is a delightfully friendly person with a long term devotion to the art of BBQ. We stopped by for dinner. Same great food. It's real cozy...quite small. But there is a lot of wonderful food per square foot!

Monroe is so fortunate to have a fine restaurant of the class set up by highly trained, and well "seasoned" chef/owner Adam Hoffman. We've been there multiple times and already scheduled a day to go back. In fact, this place should become a phenomenon for all of east & northeast Seattle area. It's definitely no some routine small town diner. I'd compare it with about any non-pretentious establishment I've been in in the big cities.

Three words: Talent. Professionalism. Character. Obviously, just about every one of Jared’s clients proudly offer appreciative reviews of his stunning photographic talent and skill. But it takes more than that. All of us in this region who know the man behind the camera also know of the quiet, but confident, professional intensity with which Jared throws himself 100% into every single one of his photography projects. He doesn't just take pictures; he is dedicated to helping families preserve and share lifelong memories of their most important milestones. But besides observing his photography, I have also enjoyed getting to know Jared as an enthusiastic volunteer who supports others in his community when they need a helping, caring hand. When there's a need Jared steps forward, speaks out, gets involved. And Jared’s deep rooted, unshakable personal character of trust and unselfishness is as dependable as anyone I’ve ever met. Even in mentoring other photographers. There are clear reasons why Jared Burns Photography is growing so fast and so widely throughout the Seattle area.​
