Life is a choice… choose wisely.

I live and play in Snohomish, Washington. It is a nice town with a rich history of logging mills and hard working Americans. Often these men worked long days, did dangerous and manual labor, but always were responsible to their families and those that provided their living… their employers.

Today… Snohomish offers a great down town center with good restaurants, boutique shops, and a few antique stores. Those antiques stores are beginning to disappear as the times change. I have seen a couple of wine tasting stores pop up and even a Harley Davidson store.

This brings me to this photo… It’s not for sale, but you can see more of my awesome images at

snohomish, homeless, snohomish homeless, under the bridge, graffiti

A place where the underbelly of Snohomish exist. Under a bridge riddled with hate, words penned by victims, and dirt masquerading as bedding for the homeless and depleted.

We all get to make choices. Choose right… choose reponsibility and chances are you get rewarded with good food and decent shelter. Choose to be a victim and you get life under this bridge.

What will be your choice?

Will you be a troll on society… a wandering and invisible nobody, or…

Will you be noticed, be responsible, be productive, and be happy!!

I choose the later and I hope you have as well.
