Previous to going to college. Sent by my moms previous to her moving:
Making the most of the lens rental on the flight back, especially after only using it once the day before.
Took lots of shots sitting in the window seat which is a rarity for me:
This might be my favorite. I like the side shot of the sun coming in:
Looks almost like cotton candy:
A little crooked but playing with vignetting:
The sound coming home:
Before the wedding got to wander around a closed GM factory. Kind of sad to see such a large part of the community be closed.
I am a sucker for repetition, especially of the industrial kind:
This kind of summed up the whole area for me:
Some puffy dandelion like flowers in black and white:
Now in color:
Lunch behind a wall:
That I rented for the wedding reception I am heading to for the weekend. Got the 24-105 L and a flash. Wanted to play with it a little before I actually had to take pictures at the wedding.
So wandering around Seattle and taking some shots.
Holding up the world:
This pic of stairs is one I really like. Makes me think of a mental institution:
Just picking flowers:
Trying something a little different with this one. Got a plugin for Lightroom that let's me export all my photos right to the blog without going through Live Writer. Might take a few tries to get it to work.
Eileen's favorite spot in the house.
And by the end of this you will be able to tell my favorite part of the sculpture park.
Found graffiti on the way there. Very hippy futuristic:
And now for a ridiculous amount of shots of essentially the same thing. My goal now is to commission a Richard Serra work when I am rich and famous. Just hoping he can last that long.
I like how the black and white flattens the depth of this some:
Showing off the curves. Everybody loves curves:
Another flattened one:
And just in case you did not have enough:
The camera is in macro mode so a meta shot of even more close up texture:
Especially a naked parade. Starting the morning off with some Bloody Marys and then watching a pretty cool parade is not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
After the parade we caught these guys playing out front of a liquor store on the sidewalk. Their first couple of songs were pretty good but they kind of fell off after that:
My holding the little one during the parade:
Some dancing in front of one of the floats:
More dancing although with many more people:
Calla enjoying my hat more so than the parade:
On the way there:
Waiting for the parade. Her enthusiasm matches everyone elses:
People wanting to get run over by the Katamari:
The good stilt walker:
Something having to do with the fall of the French empire (It was at this point I realized I needed a program):
more stilt walkers:
