this past weekend i met up with some photographer friends to do a pinhole exploration of seattle, including a few folks from portland who came up to join our little seattle group.
starting in west seattle we took the water taxi to the seattle waterfront. from there we made our way to the lovely smith tower. smith tower (wiki) was completed in 1914 and until the space needle was erected, it remained the tallest building on the west coast.
for a small fee you can ride the fantastic, ornate, manually operated elevators to the top, where there’s an obsveration deck with quite a view of the waterfront and surrounding buildings.
this is a handful of images from the fuji x100s, as i still have to get my film to the lab for processing. so look out for some pinhole images soon (i hope they come out!)

A few weeks ago I went to one of my favourite spots in Seattle, Golden Gardens Park. It features views of mountains, fantastic trees, a marina, a pier for fishing, grills for parties and benches to just chill out on. … Continue reading
Today I slept in, and by sleeping in I mean I didn’t wake up until around 7:30.
It was a day of relaxation for the most part. I had some fantastic Eggs Bennie from Meander‘s with a couple of friends. Then I spent my afternoon in West Seattle. Originally I was there to scope out a possible new place to live. But took advantage of the lovely, sunny day to take some photos and hang out with my friend Matt at Alki Beach.
Matt is a gem and let’s me take portraits of him with the wonderful Hipstamatic Tintype Lens/Film combo:
How pretty was the day?
And there were some characters too…
And one last image of Lady Liberty.
All images were taken with my trusty iPhone4s with the native camera or Hipstamatic. No additional edits.
How did you spend your Sunday??
Sunday I went to the Seattle Public Library downtown. It’s one of the most interesting buildings in the city, architecturally, at least to me. Although I’m sure others would agree. This marked the Seattle Flickr groups third stroll of the year, we try to do at least one a month. The strolls are a great way to mingle, take some photos and ultimately see a place in a variety of ways.
Along with my iPhone I took my recently acquired Zero Image Pinhole Camera. I have more to shoot on the roll, so unfortunately I don’t haven those images to share, but I do have some iPhone images.

Some fun on the escalators… Captured with Slow Shutter Cam
The red floor…
And here’s a fun snap with two of my friends, Jana and Stephen!
All in all a fun filled day with friends, photography and a stop into Fado for a pint and a bite. How was your Sunday?
Cliched? Perhaps… but it’s November and the weather was in our favour today in Seattle!
I spent some time in the late afternoon at my favourite park in Seattle, Golden Gardens. This is in the Ballard neighbourhood, with views of a marina, the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound & even a pier for people to fish off of. Even on overcast days, it can be quite a site.
Often you’ll find people hanging out in their cars, eating lunch, or just enjoying the view. I sometimes wonder why they don’t get out of their cars and walk, it’s a nice stroll, even on a day as chilly as today was. But oh well, their loss!
Here’s some of the views I took in on my stroll…
These images were created with a D700 and a 28mm f2.8D lens and edited in Lightroom 4 or Photoshop CS5.1.
Thanks for taking a peek!
