Ryan Lewis buys the Elgin's Waterfront Home

I toured the Elgin's former waterfront home a few months ago and it reminded me of many homes in the Hollywood Hills other than it is situated right on the Puget Sound with a beautiful view of the Olympic Mountains.

It was full of beautiful art and tables that would roll out of a closet transform the living room into a banquet hall.

Evidently Ryan Lewis walked in one day and fell in love with the house. As he wanted to move in at the end of January, the Elgin's had a short time to move out. They downsized from three floors to one, according to this article in the Puget Sound Business Journal. Many people have stress related to downsizing from smaller homes, but the Elgin's seemed to graciously relish the transition.

I headed up towards Mount Baker over Martin Luther King weekend to hold my vacation cabin listing open. Between customers I was engaged in  day and nighttime photography of the mountain and the stars from the upper deck.

Paying attention in this way brought back to me the peace and stillness of life outside the city and a greater appreciation of a get-away such as this!

This image is an overlay of the sunrise and evening stars, specifically the constellation Orion. I set-up my Nikon D7000 in interval mode to create star trails and thought the image of Orion the best. Orion shows in the early evening a couple of hours after sunset.
