Playing in Traffic

Spent part of a day hanging out in Seattle looking for a scene that was inspiring photographically, and I have to admit, I just wasn’t finding anything that worked for me. Having had enough, we headed back to the bus stop for the ride home and while waiting, I wandered out into the street to take this shot. I particularly like the closed in feeling the tall buildings give.

That Winter Feeling

This month’s wallpaper is one from the archives, shot on above Narada Falls on Mount Rainier back in August 2013, but seems really fitting for winter in the Pacific Northwest.

Peaceful getaway

It’s been a crazy month – I don’t think I’ve  even picked up my camera so here’s a shot from the archives, so to speak.

Two summers ago we went to France for vacation, and spent a day exploring the Palace of Versailles. It was packed with tourists so we took our exit and headed for the garden. A short mini-train trip to the Grand Trianon was in order.

The first thing we found there was a total lack of people. I completely understand how this place was used as an escape from the formality of the main palace. A perfect place to just get away and relax.

This picture is of the garden, with the pink marble pavilion in the background.

The details: Nikon D-90/Nikon 50mm f1.8. Exposure iso 200, 1/800 @f4.0
