I’m sure everyone is aware of how awful the air quality has been on the west coast while the wildfires have been burning. It got pretty bad here in Seattle, but I took this on Wednesday around an hour before noon, from Kerry Park here in Seattle. On a clear day, you can see The Mountain, 100 km away. The smoke was actually starting to clear a little bit by the time I took this shot, and the air quality had improved to “unhealthy”.

The smoke is actually clearing some in Seattle

I don’t know what kind of fucking idiot is still listening to the moron in the Oval Office, but I’m here to tell you that climate change is a real thing, that we are causing it, and that it’s exacerbating every damned natural disaster on the planet.

Let’s go over this again, for those of you who are slow learners:


Black Lives Matter.

Women’s rights are human rights.

No human is illegal.

Science is real.

Love is love.

…and while I’ve got your ear, sex work is work.

No one should ever be sick or dead because they can’t afford healthcare.

Everyone has a right to stable housing and enough food.

And that dumbass mutherfucker in the White House has to go, for everyone’s sake.


If you’re not down with every bit of that, I’m probably not the photographer for you.

This post is a part of another round of the 52-week challenge photography project. I’ll post the pieces on Tuesdays, and this is the shot for this week. Click the camera icon above to see the other pieces for this project, or just click here.
