Trainspotting

Posted in trains, Uncategorized with tags , on September 25, 2009 by iconicblue

Yesterday when I came home from work there were trains snug up against the building. You’d think it would make bird watching more difficult for the boys, but actually, the trains bring crevices for the birds to hang on and in plus lots and lots of grain! It’s actually more of a bird bonanza when the rail cars are there than when they aren’t.

After a quick meet and green when I walked in the door, their interest turned quickly to the screeches, whistles and swoops of birds scurrying for an evening feast in the beautiful blue Seattle evening light.

Finchy very attentively watches the tops of the trains.

Robin has to crane his head straight up in order to see the train top. Check out his freckles (notice the ones on his lips)!

Cat is my Co-pilot

Robin took a trip to the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field recently to check out an Air Force C-130 Hercules transport plane.

Robin poses for a photo opp with crewman, and crew woman, Bradley Manriquez and Jessica Carrillo who were quite excited to have a cat on their plane.

The many moods of Finchy

The only important thing of note is that all of these images come from a 1 minute time span. Finchy doing his thing… He loves to do this in the middle of the night especially, sitting in the middle of the studio floor, surrounded by nothing, in the dark, with his brother sleeping somewhere, just gazing at shadows.

I give you… Finchy, and his many moods

Summer’s Bounty

Posted in studio with tags on September 9, 2009 by iconicblue

Summer is obviously drawing to a close. Following a record 108 degree day here, it is now cooling off, turning wet, and all the leaves are starting to turn colors. It was a good thing we took advantage of all of summer’s yummy harvest. We have been canning up a storm, and of course, the boys just had to help. Any activity involving the kitchen island is too much temptation for Finchy. He gets a pass to be on it due to his incredible cuteness.

Robin is only interested when food is involved that he wants to eat. I don’t think apricots in simple syrup count.
