Just found your site. Fun stuff. In regard to coyotes in Seattle, it seems that if there were more of them, we would have fewer Canada geese. Might be a nice way to kill two birds with one stone, or in this case, one coyote.
Just a thought and something that has long interested me, the intersection of nature and people in the urban landscape. If you are interested, I wrote about this in my book, The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist.

I just posted a review of our trip to Iceland in the past two weeks. Photos of the countryside and Rekjavik are great. The City is very nice, especially their concert hall which wowed us and is absolutely gorgeous. It is a hallmark of the City. The flea market of sweaters pictures is so much part of the City. Next time get pictures of the blue lagoon, city buildings and mountain areas that emit steam.
Thanks. I assume you are commenting on the Iceland post. Rest assured I have many, many more photos, including the subjects of your suggestions. They just weren’t suitable for the one post I did. Cheers.
I saw the Crosscut article and was drawn to both the “urbanist” concept and your pics from Eastern WA.
I live in the Snohomish County part of Woodinville and for the past year I’ve been taking photos and blogging about Snoco’s plans for Wellington Hills Park. Their plans are staggering and, to me, represent all the past sins of terrible land development.
The Park is in a residential neighborhood yet the County wants (with mitigation $$$ from Kingco’s Brightwater Sewage plant) to build a commercial park – artificial turf soccer fields, stadiums lights, paved parking for 730 cars, a 60,000 sq. ft. mountain bike building, 50,000 sq. ft. “activities” building, etc.
Pondering the thought of Seattle urban photographers going to almost timeless Eastern Washington for photo ops – it struck me – local areas just beyond Seattle, offer unique photographic challenges. These transition areas – places susceptible to development of all kinds – often disappear without notice.
Thanks, Bill. Did you comment on Crosscut as well?
I did. However, from experience I must say, comment sections, especially for media sites, tend to attract slacktivists and clicktavists. None the less – hope springs eternal.
