Jonathan and Morgan Go for a Walk in the Woods

They arrive in the forest, taking deep breaths of the moist Pacific Northwest forest air, feeling the warm sun on their faces (or, just as often, the dry warmth of their rain gear). They set off down the trail. Jonathan notices a bird high up in a tree, and stops to zoom in with his camera and take pictures. Morgan doesn't have the benefit of a zoom lens, or even a camera for that matter, so she soon gets bored of squinting through the branches, and tiptoes on down the trail. As she goes, she finds a spider web, an extra-soft patch of moss, a nifty gnarled tree branch, and a great big tree. As soon as she hears that Jonathan is approaching, she points out all of these things to him so that he can take pictures of them.

As soon as she hears that Jonathan is approaching, she points out all of these things to him so that he can take pictures of them. He spends a long time fiddling with the camera to get the pictures just exactly right, which Morgan finds tedious to watch, so she trudges down the trail to find a hiding place - the inside of a hollow tree trunk, perhaps - where she can make herself small and cozy. Jonathan finishes photographing all the little things Morgan pointed out, and a few more as well, and then makes his way down the trail to find her.

We find it impossible not to be inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Whether it's the buildings of downtown Seattle shimmering in the evening sunlight, the looming heights of the Cascade mountains, the richness of the ever-present moss, or the simplicity of a leaf fallen in the grass, the views all around us make us want to pull out a camera and try to capture even just a sliver of this beauty.

Jonathan deserves the artistic credit in this joint venture. Morgan might have an eye for pretty things and a knack for presenting them nicely online, but it is Jonathan who has the skill with the camera to capture that beauty in stunning and startling ways.
