A Wedding and an Unexpected Funeral

At the end of August, I boarded the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry to photograph a friend’s wedding on Bainbridge Island.  On the trip over, I went to the upper deck to possibly take some landscape photographs.  There was a storm forecasted that day and the winds were already kicking up.  About halfway through the crossing, the ferry personnel announced […]

The Seattle-King County Public Library (downtown branch)

We are fortunate here in downtown Seattle to have a beautifully-designed public library.  It is fun to visit, whether to read a book, take photographs, or admire the architecture.  The red floor is especially interesting.  And, of course, being Seattle, a small coffee shop awaits you inside. Here’s to real books, bookstores, and libraries.  May they always be […]

The Easy Transport (Day 4 of the 5-Day B&W Photo Challenge)

The escalator in a building in downtown Seattle (the Norton Building).  It’s one of the longest escalators I’ve ever seen.  Many people use it to get from First to Second Avenue if they don’t want to (or can’t) climb the hill between these two streets.  Let’s just say that if you walk it, your Achilles […]

First Annual ‘Chip In For Charity’ Event

I had the honor of photographing a charity golf tournament last week, put on by Windermere Real Estate Company and Windermere NW, which comprises 11 offices in Greater Seattle.   The event, held at Inglewood Golf Club, raised money for the Windermere Foundation, a 501©(3) nonprofit organization, which raises and distributes funds to support low-income and homeless assistance […]

St. Paul de Vence at The Triple Door in Seattle

I attended the concert of a friend of mine last night, Benjamin Doerr, and his band St Paul de Vence.  The concert was at The Triple Door in Seattle and was held in collaboration with Melodic Caring Project, an incredible organization, founded by Levi and Stephanie Ware, that streams LIVE, personalized concerts to kids and teens in the […]

First Thursday Arts Walk – July 2014

The First Thursday Arts Walk in Seattle never disappoints and the July exhibits are no exception. This month, I started out at Greg Kucera Gallery, where the ‘Kinetic Sculptures’ exhibit by artist, John Buck, is absolutely amazing.  Massive, intricate, and extremely creative pieces.  Well worth your time if you’re in Seattle.  If you are unable to […]

The Night Before the Lunar Eclipse In Seattle….

So, I think you will understand my disappointment when I posted the Lunar Eclipse photograph (where the moon was hidden behind clouds) when you see my practice shot taken the night before.  An unedited, 47-second exposure, taken just 24 hours before…..  Look at that moon!!   Posting this in honor of what might have been. […]

Sometimes Running in From the Rain Leads to ‘Heaven’

Life sometimes brings surprises out of what seems to be such an ordinary thing. As I walked the streets of Paris one day, taking photographs and observing life, it began to rain. Hard, sudden rain. The kind of rain you cannot ignore for long if you’re carrying your camera and not wearing a raincoat. As […]
