Seeing a bison for the very first time in Yellowstone! Also knowing that you are standing on the worlds strongest volcano really blew my mind..
My friend asked me for a photo of myself for her website, and I cringed a little. I also realized I donโ€™t really have any. So I decided to set up my tripod and give it a whirl. For this brief interjection between landscape photos I might as well introduce myself and thought Iโ€™d share 10 things about me. 1. My name is Rita Goldfarb 2. Iโ€™m 100% Canadian 3. Iโ€™ve moved 8 times in the past four years. Three of those moves were across country borders. 4. This is my second time living in Portland, OR. And Iโ€™m stoked to be back. 5. I shoot all my photos on my Canon 6D Mark II. 6. I grew up in a tiny town in Ontario and spent my summers day dreaming of surfing on the lake. Great Lake Surfers- itโ€™s a thing. I happened to date two boys in high school who surfed the lakes๐Ÿ„๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ 7. I grew up playing hockey and drinking maple syrup (clearly)... but actually. I also played a very Canadian sport called Ringette....for ladies only. Look it up! 8. I feel most calm and myself near the water or outside. 9. I have two dogs instead of kids w| my incredible husband. One is a 10 month old coonhound/husky puppy named buzz (from home alone) and the other is an adorable neurotic 9 year old Aussie mix named Andy. 10. On my spare time you can usually find me harassing my friends to take photos of them, running out to the coast for day trips, doing a terrible job rock climbing, and day dreaming about my next trip back to Jackson Hole... gotta figure out when thatโ€™s going to be! -now back to landscape photos- โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #portrait #portraiture #selfportrait #oregon #portland #canadian #photographer #pdxphotographer #oregoncoast #portlandoregon #thatpnwlife #pacificnw #pacificnorthwest

Water_Day 13: Two nights ago, I walked along the water looking at the stars. Some of those stars are actually planes, satellites, helicopters. I had to stop and take in that moment. How amazing is that? For many years man dreamt of flight. We are living in a time where we can FLY to any place in the world. Let us not overlook the amount of effort and time that went into the making of these incredible inventions. - Enjoy this water haiku: "Sound of a stream, sunlight dancing on waters, life wakes up again." - Roumiana Tsenkova. . . . . .#tealover #tea #TeaAndConversations ย #teapot #ceramics #teaislife #handmade #meditation #pottery #cha #teatime ย  #lovetea #peaceofmind #kyusu #greentea #washington #healthyminds #zen #puerh #artisan #intention #herbalist #haiku #wabisabi #rusticlook #teaceremony #teaware #pacificnw #seattle #pnwartist

I was fortunate to be a part of the Sony Alpha Meetup in Portland recently, where an enormous pack of photographers and models sent it off into the woods for an adventure. I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve ever shot with that many people before, but it was an amazing experience, being around so many creatives, getting to know new faces, and walking away with some amazing new friends. Thanks @sonyalpha for putting that together!
Thinking about where Iโ€™d be today if I hadnโ€™t taken a chance on a stranger helping me get my life back on track.... . Sure I had my career, I was married to the love of my life and I had given birth to the most beautiful little girl (ok maybe not just, she was just shy of being 2, but you get the point). I had all I had ever dreamed of, but one thing was still not right.. . I was still carrying around the weight from my pregnancy, my eating habits were out of control, my clothes didnโ€™t fit and I was an absolute stress ball. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ . I took a chance on a complete stranger Iโ€™d been following on social media and my life changed in so many ways. . 3 1/2 years later, I have made exercise part of my daily routine, I now understand how and when I should be eating to fuel my body rather than diet, I still enjoy my favorite foods (in moderation) and I have made some amazing friends in the process that are also working towards their goals. . My life is forever changed all because I took a chance on a complete stranger and now itโ€™s time to pay it forward. . If youโ€™ve been struggling with your diet and exercise and would like to know more about my online boot camps, then leave your favorite emoji ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™ˆโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿง€ below and Iโ€™ll reach out to you with details! Itโ€™s that simple, no commitment, just information about what changed my life and could possibly change yours. ๐Ÿ’•
Thx for @seattletimes for coverage on Megan Griffiths' new film, SADIE (Oct. 19-25 @ NWFF). A fascinating coming-of-age tale, Sadie is a family drama and "a sympathetic portrait of a budding sociopath." Director, crew, and lead actress in attendance for a post-screening Q&A on October 19 and 20! Co-sponsored by @womeninfilm Seattle. Visit nwfilmforum.org for tickets and showtimes!

Feeding the soul with some morning NW tromping ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ˜ #pacificnw #tromping
Just wanted to give a quick shoutout to a product that has completely changed the way I experience the outdoors. Having the ability to save maps to different areas on my phone and be able to access and explore them all without service has lead me to so many new places that I never would have touched outherwise. The Onx Hunt app has not only improved the way I hunt but also just explore new stretches of public land. If you have never heard of this or never used it I strongly advise you to give it a shot. There are so many tools and versatile uses at your fingertips. It will improve your outdoor experience as it has done for me.
Some mornings are made for enjoying coffee with my love on the deck, by the fire. I'm so thankful to have the space to do this now! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜ #coffee #outlanderfirebowl #pacificnw #fallmornings #cozy
Itโ€™s a chilly morning here in the Pacific NW, but those fall leaves ๐Ÿ are GORGEOUS!! Todayโ€™s Scentsy diffuser is sporting some cinnamon bark, peppermint stick, and lemon essential oils....just the right mix of fall! What does your house smell like? #essentialoils #scentsy #bossbabe #superstardirectoratwork #pacificnw #oregon
We got blanked on deer but put 5 fall turkeys in the cooler. Wild turkey for Thanksgiving! Check out the contents of one of the birds crops. Snowberryโ€™s, lots of seeds, bee, grasshopper, beetle, talk about an opportunist omnivore.
Did anybody notice Saturn chasing the Moon this past Sunday? It was interesting watching Saturn slowly catch up with the Moon since the Moon travels a tad slower than the planets and stars in the night sky. #saturn #planet #moon #luna #alignment #nightsky #night #happyvalley #happyvalleyor #happyvalleyoregon #seportland #portlandnw #portlandor #portland #portlandoregon #oregonnw #oregon #pacificnw #pacificnorthwest
