Laura and Tim's Wedding in Fort Myers Florida

Sunday, June 29, 2008

My cousin Laura is from my Mom's side of the family. On Saturday June 28th she and her bridegroom Tim were wed in Fort Myers Florida. There are few things in this world as precious as family, including extended family, and the occasion of Laura and Tim's wedding generated an expression of the strength and depth of my extended family. Laura, Tim, and nearly everyone in attendance at their wedding are from the mid-west so their wedding in Fort Myers Florida was a destination wedding that required everyone to travel a long distance to be present. I've heard that at initially Laura and Tim expected no more than 50 people to make the trip, however, this evening more than 100 people were at the ... [There is more.

Patrick & Andrea's Wedding

Sunday, February 17, 2008

Two friends of mine, Patrick and Andrea, were married in a heartwarming ceremony Saturday February 16th in the Loomis Trail Mansion at the Semaiahmoo Resort. Below are a few pictures from the ceremony and the reception. I've included one grainy picture of Patrick and Andrea in the foreground with Patrick's brother and sister in the background singing because this was one of the most wonderful moments of the wedding, besides the vows of course, to hear two members of the wedding party sing to the new couple.  As individuals they are the kind of people you would say you were luck to have as a friend, neighbor, or coworker, I'm sure their life together will be filled with true love and ...

View from a Jet Airplane's Window

Monday, December 31, 2007

I travel by jet many times a year mostly going to San Jose, Cincinnati, or India, flying has become a normal activity for me, yet, I know people who have never flown. Recently I purchased a Nikon 10.5 mm fisheye lens and I thought it might help me capture the view from the window seat of a modern commercial jet. I took these pictures on a Cincinnati (CVG) to Seattle (SEA) flight which was leg two on my way back from Boston. Unfortunately I missed the really good pictures of Mt. Rainier because I was seated in a right-hand window seat headed West into Seattle. Even so I wanted to post these pictures because they give a view of the ground I haven't often seen in photos and I thought they ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]

Master of the Lodge

Monday, December 31, 2007

On October 27th my Father, Dennis Blom, was installed as Worshipful Master of the Phoenix Lodge in Hanover Massachusetts. My father is the first mason in our family and since I live on the other side of the U.S.A this was my first opportunity to see the lodge that my father has become so involved with. My younger sister Molly and my new brother in-law Nate (they got married the weekend before), along with our mother, were also present. We are all very proud of Dad's accomplishments at the lodge and are sure that this will be an exciting year from him as master of the lodge.[more]

Big Hump on the Duckabush River

Monday, December 31, 2007

Although covered in snow the Duckabush River trail (#803) to Big Hump turned out to be a great winter hike. The snow was only a few inches deep so simple waterproof hiking boots were all that was needed. Located on Forest Service road 2510 in the Hood Canal District of the Olympic National Forest the trail is easily accessed from US Highway 101. From the parking lot the trail to Big Hump is about 4 miles, however, more than half of that distance has little elevation gain and what you do gain on the way up Little Hump you lose going down to the Duckabush river before beginning the ascent up Big Hump. Take a minute to enjoy the banks of the Duckabush River just before the elevation gain to ... [There is more. Click on the title above.][more]
