~ WELCOME ~
My name is Madge Bloom,
I am a freelance photographer, wife, mother and a Christian.
Now retired after working the first half my career on the Seattle waterfront and
the second driving a 40′ transit style school bus.

My blog gives you a glimpse of the beautiful part of the United States where I have always lived.
You will see images from all around the Pacific Northwest,
but mostly from Washington and the metropolitan area of greater Seattle.

My photography spans the bright lights of the big cities, the quiet charm of small towns, rural and agricultural areas.

My work has been published:
- in fiction and non-fiction works, and textbooks (as illustrations and covers)
- for advertising in industry, restaurants, small businesses, professional sports and tourism
- for websites
- for magazines
- as prints for individuals

Thank you for visiting.
Come back as often as you like, travel with me down city streets, off the beaten path, around the next bend
and down any blue highway nearby.
All my best,
~ MY PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR ~
In the past, I shot exclusively with Pentax gear.
Very recently, I have changed to the Fujifilm X System, with the XT-1.
I shoot in RAW+Jpeg.
For post processing, I use Photoshop CS5, with various plugins, by Nik Software and Topaz Labs.
I do not highly process my images, but it’s nice to have the power if an image needs a little push one way or the other.

Fuji 10-24mm f4 – Semi Fish Eye
