What’s New in 2014 – Workshops and Projects!

December ended up being a much busier month than I’d anticipated. I went to my hometown, Atlanta, to help my mom move to florida. Yep, it was that time. About 9 days, helping mom pack and purge things, then a road trip south to sunny (and sometimes surprisingly chilly) Florida. With a cat. ha!

During this time I’d also managed to launch a couple of things.

~ a new 365 project

Workshops, were a long time coming. Now I’ve done several over the past couple of years, but this year I wanted to formalise things a bit. Kicking things off with two classes, focused on mobile photography. The first one is this Sunday on basic photographic techniques and the following Sunday I dive into more creative techniques. Check out details here: Workshops.

In 2010, 2011 & 2012 I completed a 365 Project, that’s a Photo a Day. All of these images were taken and edited on an iPhone. In 2013 I feel I was pretty prolific in creating mobile images, but not quite daily. This year I decided to give it another go, it’s a good challenge to create something, daily. The fun part is that with the iphone (or other smart phones), you can snap an image and do an edit all on one device.

So here we go again!

Here’s a few of my fave images from the first two weeks, including at least one or two from somewhere south and east (in the US).

golden gardens

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.

This day I walked, paused, sat on a bench, walked more, paused again, found another bench. Taking my time to enjoy the beautiful day and capture some of those who were also exploring the day.

As usual, I like my trees, so I snapped a few, this time capturing joggers and walkers in silhouette. These are some faves for sure!

And then there are these guys, which look rather unique in black and white, almost infrared!

If you ever visit seattle, be sure to check out this park, it’s fantastic, year round!

All of these images were captured on an iPhone4s with Hipstamatic.

alki beach in march

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 did you spend your Sunday??
