This weekend my girlfriend Terry and I headed out of the city for a day of sunshine, climbing, and hiking among the amazing basalt cliffs near Vantage, Washington. It was great to just get out of Seattle for awhile and take a deep breathe of fresh desert air. Typical of Seattle area weather forecasts, we only got one day of sunshine instead of the forecasted two days, but I'll take it. Thanks to Terry for snapping these two pictures of me.

Today I made another venture over to Vashon Island to visit La Boucherie, part of Sea Breeze Farm, to photograph a class on butchery and charcuterie. It truly is an amazing place where you can see basically your food in raw form and then in the form of pork chops, ground beef, sausages, and the items you are so used to finding at the grocery store, without really understanding how they are made. The only difference is that the cuts of meet and sausage links that adorn the coolers at La Boucherie taste a whole lot better than anything you can find at your local Safeway. It was fascinating to see how nearly every part of a pig was used for something. Keep an eye out for more images from Sea Breeze Farms as this project continues to develop.
