Just a seagull, I know, but he/she was hanging on the deck of my motel room for my birthday cuppa coffee. Here I had the beautiful view of First Beach in LaPush, WA, and I was focusing my camera on this one. :)

Well, I have updated my 365 Project folder. I am not quite caught up, but almost. This is one of my favorite shots from the month of March. I actually used my tripod for this macro shot...had some golden hour light shining on the Sand Dollar, and a little bit of incoming tide swirling around it. Sometimes, everything does come together. :)

I have updated my 365 Project album, and thought I would share what I have so far. I am getting ideas from http://captureyour365.com. Some photos are very loose interpretations, and I also allow myself three wildcards per month to replace subjects I just can't relate to. Rather than trying to force myself to take a photo each day, and posting photos that don't have a certain level of creativity or quality, I am taking photos when I can, and posting when I can, and using the list as a tool for inspiring subject matter. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to comment with suggestions for any of the photos...critiques always welcome.

The only decent shot I got of the whales feeding off of First Beach in LaPush, Washington this past weekend. I am reasonably sure this is a Grey Whale, but please let me know if you know differently. I took this from shore with my 70-300mm, so they were pretty close. :)

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful birthday weekend on the Washington Coast. We stayed at the Quileute Ocean Resort on the Quileute Indian Reservation in LaPush, Washington. It was beautiful and sunny all weekend, which is amazing considering it is one of the rainiest places in the United States. This is First Beach at sunrise, and was the view from my room...not too hard to take, eh? :)

Oh, and I was able to watch Grey Whales feeding just off of shore Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. I only got one decent shot of a tail, but it was fun watching them nonetheless.

Thanks again for all of your thoughtfulness!

Roam...Observe...Appreciate...Photograph...Share...Inspire
Introduction
Hello G+ World!

I am an outdoor photographer, and somehow want to get paid to do what I love to do: Roam...Observe...Appreciate...Photograph...Share...Inspire

 I know I can't make a living as a photographer, but would like to somehow incorporate it into my work life. I have paid my dues working as an executive assistant and event coordinator, so I have great skills, but don't want to sit at a desk, in an office, five days a week. Been there, done that. It's time to do something new, and something that makes me happy.

I have just relocated to Seattle, WA, so if you know of any photographers that hold tours and workshops (Art Wolfe), or photo safaris, that are in need of someone to help them research, plan, and implement said tours and workshops, I am the person!

On a professional level, click here if you have any interest in seeing my actual work experience and/or references:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/mlbrookmire/

In the meantime, time to go explore my new home town...cheers!
Bragging rights
I just made my fourth, cross-country drive across the United States, and actually enjoyed it this time!
Work
Occupation
I just relocated to Seattle, Washington; looking for employment as an event / workshop coordinator...preferably in the field of photography tours and workshops.
Skills
Driving around endlessly performing "research" and "scouting" areas for new events / photo shoots; excellent prep and organization skills; love to meet new people; handle stressful situations with grace and ease; excellent juggler and magician = I am great at managing many priorities (all high priority of course), and being resourceful to get the job done, with a smile on my face. :-) Great at spending time outdoors appreciating nature and our beautiful planet.
