I tried to find a way to email you but didn't see if. If you could please email me at jmausmus (at) hotmail (dot) com. Thanks so much!

Photo requests in Seattle area?[edit]

Hi, Walter!

When the weather gets warmer in Seattle, are you interested in photographing places in SeaTac and/or the surrounding cities/the Highline School District area? WhisperToMe (talk) 17:22, 8 January 2017 (UTC)

I'm not likely to find time to do that in the next year. Thank you for thinking of me. Walter Siegmund (talk) 20:42, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome! Anyway, happy editing :) WhisperToMe (talk) 01:21, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
