Last month I was at the Seattle Space Needle covering a corporate event but had to stop and make the mountains just before sunset. Seattle Center is in the foreground.

Polar Bear Plunge

January 2nd, 2015

seattle_photographer_polar_plunge_3

At this time of year when the weather is around freezing, some people feel the desire to plunge into freezing waters. Jana is one of those folks who get this notion so I drove her down to Golden Gardens and documented her plunge into the frigid water of Puget Sound. Afterwards she said that “the best part is that the stupid water doesn’t even feel that cold compared to the air. and how you feel afterwards”.

I had a mission recently to accompany Tim Narby of Note Bene Winery  to drop bins at Ciel du Cheval and return with harvested grapes from Arianses Vineyard and Dineen Vineyard (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot from Arianses; Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Dineen).  It was a great trip and wonderful to see where the grapes that go into his wonderful wine come from. It is some beautiful country over there in Eastern Washington State.

Seattle skyline with Space Needle from roof deck of an apartment building
Last night I spent the lovely spring evening shooting from a roof deck of a new apartment building in Queen Anne. The views are quite nice of both the city with Space Needle as well as the Olympics to the west across Puget Sound.

Hedge Car

March 28th, 2013

Seen on A Seattle street a bush clipped into the shape of a car.While walking my daughter and dogs to  school this morning I noticed that this bush looked just like a car on the front lawn of this house in Ballard. Or maybe it is a car overgrown by a hedge. I wonder what kind of car it was? Anyone know or recognize it?

 

Cactus Sunrise

March 29th, 2012

In need of a break from all of the rain we have been having the past few weeks in the Pacific Northwest I sought out this shot of a cactus at sunrise in the Arizona desert. This shot was taken as a test shot before I exposed some old fashioned color film with my Fuji GX 6 x 17 panorama camera.  I took a couple of days last month to hang out and absorb some desert environment and the weather was perfect with a high of 78 F. This picture was made in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Park and over the mountains in the distance is the border with Mexico.

February Desert Dreams

February 17th, 2012

After covering an event assignment last week in Phoenix, I took a couple of days to hang out and absorb some desert environment. the weather was perfect with a high of 78 F and it was a nice break from the rain in the Pacific Northwest. This shot was taken with my iphone 4s and I will have more after the  film from my panorama camera is processed.

I was out at the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park over the weekend. I love the view of the Olympics across the Puget Sound in winter with lots of snow covering the tops and interesting cloud formations.
