The Tacoma, Washington area was my home for nearly 5 years. However, my interest in photography had taken a back seat to my newly-started career in the military. As a result, I never got the chance to capture properly, the beauty of the area.
So when I took a one week vacation recently, to stay with friends in Tacoma, I made it a priority to capture at least a few worthwhile images. This wasn't a photography trip per se, so I didn't pack a full kit, nor did I want to. The trip was primarily to spend time with friends, I only brought along one camera and a scant few accessories.
I chose to bring the Sony RX1RII because of it's compact size, yet astounding full-frame 42 megapixel resolution. The limitations were limited only to the 35mm focal length of the fixed lens. However, after a week of shooting photos with only one focal length, I was pleased to find that I didn't feel it hindered me in so far as the type of photography I was shooting.
I hope you enjoy the resulting images and help support my art by making a small donation via Paypal. Thanks!

There are far more rainy, wet days in Washington than there are sunny days. However, I find there's plenty of beauty to be found in the wet, gloomy days.
