When people ask where I'm from, the standard answer is "the Seattle area." The general response isn't because I don't want people to know where my hometown is, but more that I'm not sure anyone could locate it on a map. It's small-ish. Not Midwest tiny. But it's not exactly a thriving metropolis. So you can understand why I don't initially say "Spanaway, Washington."
Spanaway's rural areas provide many opportunities to shoot pretty landscapes, which are my fave. These are some of the images I captured during my visit at Christmas ... A digital homage to my roots.
