The Jenkins fam spent the last nine days in Massachusetts — the first two in Boston, the rest on Nantucket. We took too many great photos to include a “best of” here, but I did do a nice photo book.

Just back from a nine-day vacation — first Washington, DC, ostensibly for my law school reunion; then New York City. We took a LOT of photos. Pairing them down to the best has proven difficult, so instead I’ll just share our Shutterfly photo book.
It’s my best one ever — at least until the next one.
Last week I stumbled on an article that listed the five best places in Seattle to watch the sun set. Last Friday the kids and I hit Queen Anne’s Kerry Park, a fine place to watch the sun set except that you can’t actually see the sun set.
Last night the four of us hit Golden Gardens. A pretty good spot — and we actually saw the sun.
As usually happens, the family outing to watch nature turned into a Jenkins family photo shoot. A few of my favorites:
Next up: Alki.
Well not really. But an iPhone app I just downloaded called PaintMee HD is pretty cool. A few “paintings” from yesterday’s family photo shoot at the UW:
As always, all of us (save perhaps Rhonda) received a lion’s share of presents this year. My favorite present was probably a plaid bow tie that Rhonda picked up for me at The Cordial Churchman.

One of my favorite Christmas gifts was a DSC-RX100, a camera Sony released last year and which was billed, at the time, as the greatest point and shoot ever made. Santa delivered it a week early as a first bit step in my new “hobby” — photography. (Hobby is in quotation marks because, although I’ve been thinking about photography for years, I took that first step all of a week ago.) I’ll still take the dozens of run-of-the-mill shots as I always have, but from now on I’m going to give it a go at capturing some higher end images as well.
I caught a few decent ones yesterday:
