    An imaginary painting inspired by my explorations of small streams, their side channels, and resting pools.

      C'mon photographers, painters, fly tiers, carvers, writers of Westfly! This is your last chance to contribute your expressions to this wonderful community. Show your collection of the last years posted, or show what you finished yesterday. I'm pretty sure it is what Scott would want to see as a final expression of thanks from all of us.

        I don't get here often enough... probably too much fishing... but I'm going to miss this forum and particularly this thread. Since I moved over to CO I DO spend a lot more time on the water, but I sneak in a project from time to time. The current one is a miniature Wood duck. This is about 2" long. I will begin painting shortly. The eyes were inserted last night and I didn't take a photo of the current stage. However, Mecca Flats calls today. This one will be a drake and I'll follow up with a lady friend for him. Thanks again, Scott, for providing a home for so many for so long!

            I don't know who that is, but I know the spot well.

          My photo is of you, Bill. The first time you fished the bamboo on the Metolius.

            Hello Gary,

            That photo has a prominent place hanging in my office. What a great trip that was!

          The "Special Derby Project" started in 2014, as a challenge from my local roller derby team, inspired partly by the ESPN "Body" issue, and partly by another team in WA state which had done a calendar of derby nudes. The goal is to reflect roller derby's culture of "derby athletes come in all shapes and sizes." And frankly, it's just been a fun team bonding excercise for a lot of the skaters, who usually show up 2-3 at a time for their studio sessions.

          I figured we would do a couple of studio sessions and be done in a week.

          Instead, I've photographed 45 skaters, male and female, from at least 6 teams across eastern WA over the past 5 years (I say "at least 6 teams" because many of the skaters in rural areas skate on multiple teams so they can get more games in....and the smaller towns often "borrow" players from the larger nearby towns to fill out their rosters).

          The project has largely been on hiatus since I closed my studio in 2017, but recently I was offered some studio space by a fellow photographer on an occasional basis, and I started working on the backlog of requests from skaters to pose for the project.

          I figured I'd post a couple of Justine's photos (with her permission) as one of my final contributions to this thread.

          Though, with luck -- I am heading to Caldwell ID to photograph a roller derby bout tonight, then on to Yellowstone NP for a couple of days, in hopes of finding some mega-fauna and some autumn leaves. So maybe I'll get another post in before the deadline.

                and now for something completely different....

                a friend of mine is communications director for The Nature Conservancy in WA State. So when they helped with a multi-agency controlled-burn training effort on 30 acres of our local wildlife preserve, she invited me to attend as a quasi-member of the media, and photograph the event. The field in question had been farmlands adjacent to the preserve until about 20 years ago, and had been left idle since then. It was largely overgrown with non-native species and was degraded in terms of it's habitat value -- the controlled burn today is expected to be first step in a rehab effort. The adjacent lake is the same place I photographed 10,000 snow geese last winter, btw.
