Michael Denis Hill, age 72, of Coupeville, Wash., died on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, after a more than year-long battle with brain cancer.
He was born July 18, 1946 in Springfield, Mo., to Lt. Col. Kenneth Rolfe Hill and Mildred Louise (Pering) Hill.
His lifelong passion for photography began with a Brownie Hawkeye camera in Istanbul in 1957.
In his teen years, he attended Poitiers American High School in Poitiers, France, and the Lycee de Grande Aire, LaBaule, France.
He played bass in several rock bands in France and Virginia.
He is survived by a brother, Roger Hill and his wife, Paula Hill; a half-sister, Jeanne Fredericks; sister-in-law, Gretchen Hill, widow of his older brother, the late Kenneth Hill; numerous cousins, nieces, great-nieces and great-nephews; and his partner of nine years, Karen Rothboeck.
In his varied career, he worked for several trade and consumer magazines, including “Stock Car Racing,” as a publisher, editor, writer and photographer; he also managed regional health surveys for the Department of Health & Human Services, and produced panoramic training videos at the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.
In 2001, he earned the Qualified Panoramic Photographer designation from the International Association of Panoramic Photographers.
He enjoyed both art and real estate photography, and for many years was a member of Penn Cove Art Gallery, in Coupeville, Wash. Much of what he shot for pleasure was landscape and nature scenes and one of his goals was, as he put it, evoking “the experience of a particular nexus of site, light and weather.” He was persistent in finding beautiful and unique photographic compositions and returning to them until the light and conditions were, to his discerning eye, perfect.
He contributed photos to several books and publications and to local tourism agencies.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
