This is my Ilo costume that I made for Halloween. I was too lazy to set up a tripod and the timer on camera to get a picture of me wearing the costume. But with it, I wore khaki pants and a khaki colored sweater so that the color matched the arms and legs of Ilo.

When looking for a picture for today, I saw this tree top from my window. It made me think how this isn’t a view that one normally gets of trees. So I decided to get a picture of it.

It was our last frisbee game of the fall regular season. The sky was very pretty all evening, as the sun was setting. Near the end of the game, the sky looked more purple than it did, blue, so I tried to get a picture of it. But all I had was my phone, and my phone does not do the scene justice, at all… I’m really disappointed in this picture. I wish I had brought my DSLR…

I recently got a receiver but didn’t know how many cables/wires I was going to need to get. I’ve probably made three separate trips to Fry’s in the past week. But at least I’m all setup now!

Today, we went to Bennett’s Pure Food Bistro on Mercer Island for Seattle Restaurant Week. This was actually the first time I have ever stepped foot on Mercer Island. I’ve driven through it on 90 in my own car and by bus, but I’ve never stopped there.

I thought Bennett’s was going to be a straight-forward restaurant, nothing super special. But I was surprised, the food was tasty, full of flavor. Here was the dessert we already started to dig into (before I remembered to get a picture). It was vanilla ice cream with a hot chocolate cookie…. and it was amazing. :) Yum!

On Wednesday a few of us went to Staple and Fancy Mercantile in Ballard for Seattle Restaurant Week. Near the end of the evening, we somehow got onto the topic of Sean’s facial hair.

I had my manual focus lens so this happened to be one of the few images that were in focus.

I needed a picture and I saw my growing stack of games from this fall. So I decided to take a picture of it.

It’s now getting cold enough that some of the plants on my balcony needed to be brought inside. I brought in any herbs and veggies, as well as the couple tropical plants that I have.

This is the Thyme I have. I think this picture looks neat because of the narrow depth of field. Most of the image is blurry, which, to me, makes it look like it might not even be real.

I went up to the roof of my building today, to see if I could get any interesting pictures there. I didn’t… There are a few taller buildings around, but there isn’t anything interesting about those buildings. The only thing I found interesting was that I could see part of 405 from the roof, where I can’t see 405 from my balcony, which is only one floor down.

I tried to use the railing up there to steady my camera. If I were less lazy, I would have gone to get my tripod… Lol, I was too lazy.

On the way to the grocery store, I wanted to take a picture of the fallen leaves on the sidewalk. I really like the vibrant colors in this picture. I don’t have much else to say about it, but I like this picture. :) I think the one thing I would change is get rid of the car at the intersection.
