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...
Almost Autumn

Almost Autumn

The trees are turning in the mountains, but before I get all yellow leafy on this piece, I thought I’d share this shot from a tree in Seattle. This shot was an afterthought, but I liked the depth of field and the mildly indeterminate light source(s). I also like...
Northwest Setting

Northwest Setting

This was the best sunset of my trip to Seattle. You might find it hard to believe, but the other evenings were cloud-free. Making my brother and sister-in-law show me a vantage point ended up shooting on a neighbor’s porch. This was my favorite shot given the...

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...

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...
Front Loaded

Front Loaded

Near where my family lives in Washington state, there is this great yard with a giant circle of vintage toy trucks arranged in a scene. At first it looks like it’s haphazardly placed gobs of a borderline hoarding habit tilted toward yellow toy trucks. As you get...
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...
