The Story of Items @TheElquists at @UrbanXchangeTacoma Skull
This is JD Elquist @TheElquists I had the pleasure of meeting him at @UrbanXchangeTacoma today. What an awesome dude. His view about the importance of approaching life humbly tugged a string somewhere deep in my ego.
I can't deny how much I love @terminuscoffee 's Copper  pour over topper. Their Coffee was deliciously crisp with heavy notes of citrus. Sooo good after freezing fingers this morning.
I just got back from visiting @UrbanXchangeTacoma 's local business night where I met Mae and David @TerminusCoffee pouring every drop of their soul into their micro roasted coffee. Stop by and show some love here or on their site. www.terminus-coffee. Coffee Coffeeroaster Pourover Chemex espresso

Today was a beautiful day for a walk around Tacoma so I explored downtown by foot with camera in hand. I just received my new hot shoe phone mount so sadly I couldn't post as I shot.
5,000 followers in what's felt like a pretty short time. I step back and wonder if we can reach 10,000? What will I be shooting then and how can I give back to those who follow me? If you can answer any of these I'd love to hear your input! Followers 5000 Photographer Tacoma_WA

I just wanted to give a quick ShoutOut to an awesome local brand in Tacoma_WA . We just picked up our favorite scents of @SanitySkinProducts body butter. (lavender for me coconut coffee for the lovely lady) from @HarborGreens it feels like magic on these winter worn hands after shooting in last night's weather! Best of all their products are 100% organic, hazardous chemical free, and feel and there's a coolness about knowing that this jar was hand poured and made with TLC.

Dare to stand out. Your most feared weakness is your biggest strength.
So I woke up excited about some bacon and eggs. Elizabeth chopped up the bacon and I'm started some tortillas when the transformer outside blows up like 3 times. So now I McGaivered a fire stove with a "fancy heat" burner. It's the saddest cooking setup but it seems to be working! I need this bacon in my life

Embrace the discomfort. Most give up before the rewards arrive.
You are my sunshine. This has been a hard year for almost everyone in my family and just the other night I realized that photography, through so much of what's happened, became my outlet, my therapy, the warmth that help me keep it together for the ones relying on me going through the worst of it.

Hope is Von in Icelandic. That's where home is for him. I have a mission now. I HAVE TO GP TO ICELAND!
I sometimes think about what I see everyday wondering when something will change that brings me to the cusp of before and after. That moment when things never become the same again. Reminds me of the day I left home; the moment I stepped out into my first deployment; when I said I do; the first breath outside my car after moving to Washington. So now I wonder when will my next turn happen? Where will I go?
This is my awkward shadow. We wander with a camera in search of what connects us.
