I often run into photographers as I'm out and about around town. Yesterday I got to meet Robby, a photographer with a power chair that he has mounted with a terrific sturdy metal mono pod, fabricated by Glaser's Cameras, atop which rides his new Canon Power Shot camera and grip (his old camera took a spill recently and broke). Robby's dog was busy posing for a cute mug shot taken by one of the store clerks at All the Best Pet Shop on Queen Anne Ave North. I saw this scene unfolding when I entered the shop and quickly took this shot. I walked over and showed the shot to Robby, upon which I got a knowing smile and he surprised me by retrieving his own photo portfolio from his backpack. Ah, someone like me! I hadn't noticed his camera, I had been so focused on his little dog and the clerk trying to take its picture. I had a treat seeing Robby's shots and learned of his successful one man show and sale held at a local coffee house. It was fun to run into a fellow enthusiast and see his work. For info on his matted and framed prints of Seattle scenes and beautiful nature shots contact him here.

I'd love to see some of his images. What subjects did he gravitate toward?

Oh how I love Seattle! There is a never ending stream of photographers. I was one of them on Sunday and had to use a photo for my own CDP blog. :)

What a great story! Pity Robby has no blog or photo sharing site, it would have been nice to see his work.

Meeting other local photographers is always a treat. Three cheers for Robby :-)

First off; I love your blog. I have been reading it about a year now. Wonderful wonderful!

Secondly; I was on a photography workshop in Queen Anne's Parson's Gardens and met Robby and his faithful pooch as well as a friend of his who was also a photographer and photographing Robby and his dog. Small worlds collide!
