In my house, football reigns supreme. My son is making some great memories as the ball boy of the high school football team:
And he'll never forget catching for the Little League All Stars team, which came in 2nd in their tournament:

This is from my archives but I just had to include it. This is the group my husband and I herded around the zoo for our son's field trip last year. They are looking out into the African savannah.
More recently I caught a silhouette of a ship in the fog. If you enlarge the picture you can see a surfer heading out to catch a wave!
Another foggy silhouette of a seagull preening on a pole off of the seawall.
Pelicans are my favorite birds....here is one flying by the channel marker at Half Moon Bay:
While the ocean is now closed to salmon fishing, they are running through the marina and these guys landed a nice slab that looked to be 12-14 lbs. I hope to get some dock fishing in myself.
This tree is off the side of the highway between Grayland and Tokeland, just a few miles south of Westport. We zip by it all the time on our way here and there and I have always wanted to stop for a photo. I was thrilled to be able to take a silhouette shot. I love this tree!
What a beautiful night this was and I was so lucky to get our viewing tower silhouette against the sunset.
And finally, this was one of my favorite shots from my archives of a December storm in 2008. Christmas day brought high winds, high tide, and quite a swell so the dock area flooded. Christmas festivities were postponed because my husband works for the city and was out sandbagging and driving heavy equipment to clean up the roads. It gave me a chance to go get some fun shots like this one of some (not so bright) people walking on the beach trail as the waves came up over the rocks.
I hope you've enjoyed my silhouettes. Click on the camera to see other participants' take on this theme. Thanks for stopping by!
