Continuing the tale of my artist residency in the North Cascades from last week: I was assigned to the Imus Cabin. I have no idea who Imus was, but I had his cabin all to myself. This is the glorious view from the front porch.

This is the cabin itself.

    Yes, Rich, I’m really enjoying the “story” along with the images. And what a glorious view you had from the front porch of your cabin.

  2. Ran says:

    I am very curious to hear more about your residency
    Did you make a project out of it?

    • Rich says:

      I did not, except for the residency requirement to provide an image within 6 months of the end of the residency and a slide show set to music. I can probably show the slideshow the next time at Walter’s if people are interested. It is just 2-3 minutes.

  3. Richard Eskin says:

    Since I have not gotten out very much lately to shoot, I thought I would tell the story of that residency because it is unique in many ways, including a tragic accident near the end.

    Thanks for looking and for your comments.
