My final project was to do a photo story in six pictures. I traveled to beautiful Seattle to document Bill and Natalie Handy, a couple living on a houseboat on Lake Union.
Lake Union in Seattle Washington is a freshwater lake that is surrounded by the backdrop of Seattle. Nestled on the North end of the lake is Dunatos boatyard. It includes a full-service boat repair yard and a marina for residents of Lake Union to park their vessels. Seen all around the lake are various sizes of houseboats and floating homes. Among these ships is the home of Bill Handy, 77. He has been living on Lake Union for 26 years and his most current residence is his live-aboard boat the ‘Handy Too’. Bill and his wife Natalie, 76 have lived on this boat for 14 years after they replaced their first boat ‘Handy’ in 1998.
