Saturday, March 23rd, I met up with about 40 or so fellow mobile photographers at Volunteer Park, in Capitol Hill. We’ve done a few photo outings, which I’m not always able to attend. This time I was able to, with … Continue reading
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?
I’m just going to say it, I’m a busy girl! I found some time this past weekend to hang with my local photography friends and Seattle Flickrites, co-leading a photowalk through Kubota Gardens in Seattle.
What began as a leisurely stroll through the quiet gardens…
Lead to shenanigans with Colby and Freeman!

What a fun bunch!
back to exploring wooded areas:
finding fields of floral intricacies:
and discovering monochromatic wonders:
We meandered to a local eatery for beverages and sustenance!
Just sayin’, it’s a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
p.s. our next event is this Sunday, August 26th. We’re heading to Pioneer Square to shoot some Film, lomo style. So if you’re into film photography, alternative processing or the like, you might be into this one!
With the exception of some square crops, these pictures are straight out of camera. Shot with a Nikon D700, with either a 50mm f/1.4G or Lensbaby Composer Pro (with the Sweet 35 or Edge 80 optic). Look for some new iPhone info soon!

A couple of weeks ago I got together with some fellow photographer friends for some fun photo taking. We had an idea to hop on the Light Rail and explore the stops along the train line.
We began at a station in SoDo, south of Downtown, then headed up towards Westlake Center. Taking some time to photograph the station.
Then heading into the shopping center above the station, I found some ant people along the way.
Our next destination was the Pioneer Square Station:
Then we hopped back on to the train and headed towards the Georgetown neighbourhood for a light lunch and more photo taking. These are my fave shots from the Arty Trailer Park setup in that area. These trailers are open during the Georgetown Art Attack, which I always seem to miss. However I love going down here to shoot when no one is around, makes for an interesting background, from another time.
All of these images were taking with the Olympus Pen E-P2 with the 17mm f/2.8 lens. Edited in Lightroom3. The “Diorama” Art filter was applied, in camera to the ants!

Time gets away from us.
Time takes us over.
We get tunnel vision.
We’re hyper-focused on many details.
We are always on the go.
Finding time, can be challenging, but it’s important!
At least I know I’m challenged in finding time, sometimes energy for things I want to pursue. I might guess at least of few of you are challenged in this area too.
One thing I have found time for, made time for, is volunteering. About 9 months ago I was finally in a position to volunteer with Youth in Focus. Youth in Focus provides photographic education to underserved teens, in both digital and film disciplines.
I am one of three mentors this quarter, along with an instructor in a class of just 8 students. This provides a great opportunity for hands on instruction and feedback on their work throughout the quarter. The kids get homework assignments, which they get to process via Lightroom. And then print weekly for critique and discussion. Along with all of that we do a couple of field trips.
Last week we had a special tour at the Henry Art Museum on the University of Washington campus. And today, we ventured out to Pike Place Market, a new experience for some. Today’s trip was purely to have some fun, and of course, take some photos.
Here’s a few I snapped during the day.
Each quarter so far has been a wonderful experience for me. I think the best part has been seeing what people can do, what inspires them, and what they’re curious about.
Simply put, it’s inspiring and I can’t wait to see what these guys do next!
