Turkish!

Turkish!

Yeah, I don’t know about the exclamation point, either. This was a throwawy until I did some relighting in a plugin. The plexiglass cover does bad things to the neon underneath. Now the softness from the plexiglass is weird and good. Just like how I feel right...
Eleven Thirty-Three

Eleven Thirty-Three

Given the state of the surrounding decor, it would appear that this clock was neglected, in ill repair and no longer functioning. But it is telling the correct time. Looking at the capture time on my image when I was working on it, the clock is dead on. Any...
Flying Early

Flying Early

Took this on final approach into SEA. The morning light in Seattle is so good for so long. I got up super early to make the cheap flight, but it was worth it, if only for this iPhone shot. Despite insomnia, I’m feeling better today. * * * Affirmation: Do one...
Herb

Herb

I can’t decide if this is a 4:20 reference or note to someone called Herb. More likely, it’s a negatively applied term. Kind of ironic. Kind of funny. That ornamental detail with all the urban grit and whatnot is pretty tasty. * * * Affirmation: You are a...
Pike Place & Pine Street

Pike Place & Pine Street

Love the texture and fading of the green paint. As the priority on this trip to Seattle was to see family & friends, I’ll be needing to head back up to do more shooting. It was nice just to walk around for a few hours on Saturday, thinking that I should buy...
Get Out Before the Fire

Get Out Before the Fire

As the light went from morning delicious to the flat midday, I decided to wrap up my shooting. Headed back to my car, I spotted this fire escape. I stopped and took a half dozen shots. I walked around it to get a few different angles and the last shot was this one...
Capitol Sconce

Capitol Sconce

Shot this back in April when I was starting to fall in love with the 70-200mm. It’s such a beast of a lens; serious, heavy and conspicuous. It screams, “I’m taking serious photos here, people.” This is both good and bad. There are times when...
Left on Green Only

Left on Green Only

From almost a month ago. Stopped at the light. Grabbed the 5D. Boom. Didn’t know what I had until I pulled it onto the computer. I’m kind of liking the similarities between that style of shooting and the wait for film processing in the olde tymes....
Corinthian Capitol Capitals

Corinthian Capitol Capitals

I’ve shot a bunch of images of this building (Wikipedia, official site), but until looking at the images I captured through my 70-200mm lens, I’ve missed a bunch of the Neoclassicist detail. I can’t imagine the spectacle that this building was when...
