Treasure can mean different things to different people. For instance I have what I call many treasures including my cat Billie and having a place to call home. But for today, the treasure I’ve decided to feature for this assignment is my teddy bear. In fact my uncle got him for me the day I was born or at least that is way the story goes. Considering, that he needs to be stuffed again and have his arm sewn back together at this very moment, I believe the story. The picture in this post just shows the Teddy wasn’t in dire need of being put back together. I call my teddy bear; Teddy or Ted. My family says it’s time to put him in retirement and let him watch over me as I sleep while he sits on the dresser. I agree but I’ve been sleeping with this stuffed animal for my entire life and it’s hard to give up. Teddy has been pretty much everywhere with me except when I went to camp as a preteen and teenager. So, Teddy is a treasure that has seen it all with me; the good, the bad and the ugly and lets not forget he has seen me in my recovery process. Since he has been with me my entire life that is why I chose him to be my featured treasure.

Developing Your Eye; Day 7: “Big”
Hello, World, I would like you to meet my “big” cat or as I call him McLargeKittyCat. In fact it’s one of his many nicknames Billie’s actual name is Billie Dean but I call him Billie for short. On that note his McLargeKittyCat nickname started out recently because when I adopted him nearly two and half years ago, he was 14 pounds which still made him a big boy. His most recent vet visit Billie was just shy of 16 1/2 pounds which is why I gave him his new nick name. He has other nicknames that I might share in another post.
Developing Your Eye; Day 7 Solitude
Blast to the past of Christmas of 2021. I took this this picture from my hotel room on Christmas morning of 2021 before I bundled myself up and walked around Capitol Lake twice. In fact it was mainly a solitude walk as only saw two other walkers when on a typical non holiday there are more walkers. I enjoyed the solitude and enjoyed my Christmas walk before spending it with family.
Developing Your Eye; Day 6; The Rule of Thirds
I may not understand the rule of thirds for this assignment and that is okay with me. Again, I was hiking through Ravenna and Cowen parks and notice an owl in a tree. It was a mama owl watching here growing babies that where learning what owls learn but they were in a different try and I couldn’t get a good picture with out disturbing any of the owls. I love owls and is rare to find one in the city but at least they find safe places in some of the city parks.
Developing Your Eye; Day 5: “Connect”
This leads to one of my favorite trails in between Cowen Park and Ravenna Park. In fact in my opinion it’s one of the most peaceful trails in the Cowen Park and Ravenna Park connection. I use this trail quiet often.
Developing Your Eye; Day 4: Bliss
I feel like the picture explains itself as Billie, my cat found his bliss in in new furrever home with me two and half years ago. His first night home he was comfortable sleeping on me while giving me a hug. One of the most previous I have of Billie.
Developing Your Eye; Day 3: Water
I typically go to Cowen and Ravenna parks in Seattle which are connected by hiking trailing. Relativity short to a almost moderate trails. Anyway as I was hiking I noticed this small brook (stream) and thought it was beautiful especially with the small waterfall. This is one of my favorite things to do in Seattle and do this particular park at least once week with the exception of when it is literally thirty nine degrees Fahrenheit or below because that is just too cold for me.
Developing Your Eye; Day 2: Street
Hello!!! This is a a local street fair in the University District neighborhood of Seattle. This picture was back in 2019 months before the pandemic of Covid-19 hit. Sadly, the U-District Street Fair was cancelled for 2020 and 2021. Thankfully it came back this year; 2022. I attended this year but forgot to take pictures so I decided to use this picture. I hope you find it as amusing as I do and yes I had the permission to post.
Developing Your Eye; Day 1: Home
I had gotten home from doing something and the first thing I noticed was the sunset outside my west window. It was and is so beautiful I had to take a picture of it and am glad to be able to share you with all of you. I do have to say the photo doesn’t due the beauty justice but at least you can still see the beauty. I love when I am home and see this type of beauty.
