Silent Night. #snowmageddon #seattleplayedout

Normally in Seattle, we'll get a couple of inches of snow per winter. This winter, the snow showed up both late and in force, dropping 5 inches of snow on downtown in a single morning. This is on top of a few inches earlier in the week plus a few more inches a day later. As the snow begins to melt from slightly warmer weather bringing rain in the 24 hours since, I've managed to get a few photos processed that reflect the views around downtown in the early hours, shortly after the snowfall stopped. I walked around downtown at 4am capturing the empty city streets and landmarks between Chinatown and Pier 66. While not very significant compared to other parts of the country, and even the region, the snow was one of the largest single accumulations in recent history for downtown.

finally went out to take some photos since the Alaskan Way Viaduct is closing for good this weekend. i ended up hitting the Pier 66 Rooftop Park at sunset then moved back to the Pike Place Marketfront location above the viaduct. finally, i went through Post Alley on the way home. oddly, it was through Post Alley that inspired the shot i liked the most from the set.

The Learning Continues…

So I've revisited a few photos from the past year and applied what I've learned in Lightroom since then. The hope was to take what I felt were good photos and try to make them better, possibly even worth printing, since I liked the views.

50 Shades of Meh

The weather today was gray. At least there was enough texture and movement to create an interesting photo, so I went to Myrtle Edwards Park to get some water shots. My route took me through the Olympic Sculpture Park, so I took a few photos there, too. Ultimately, this was an exercise in composition. It's... Continue Reading →

Moonrise at Sunrise

Caught this view while setting up to shoot at Volunteer Park. A beautiful crescent moon rising as the sun's light peeks above the horizon.

Seattle, Played Out

I've decided, based on some of my recent photos, to continue shooting from the most played out locations around Seattle. My original goal when I bought this camera was to find locations that local "photographers" haven't already oversaturated on social media, or to photograph those views in ways others haven't yet done, or can't, with...
