When I still lived in Bellingham and was looking for places to live in Seattle my main objective was to find a place close to Volunteer Park with a view. I did find that perfect apartment and have really enjoyed my placement in the city and roof access. It’s where I have captured a vast majority of my Seattle cityscapes photos this year. Saturday and Sunday I took advantage my rooftop view and captured a few photos and video of the Blue Angels flying around the Seattle skyline. All the dogs in the apartment also had a small party while the humans watched jets fly by. Next year I need to rent a 400mm f2.8 and try to capture photos from a different vantage point.
In all honesty I was not planning on capturing photos of the Blue Moon since I new it was not going to be actually blue and I have plenty of photos of past super moon’s already. But once the sun went down and I knew the moon was about to rise I could not help myself. Here’s a few photos I captured of the Blue Moon rising over the foothills out side of Seattle, Washington.
Over the past couple weeks I have done a lot of longboarding and captured a lot of longboarding photos in the Seattle area. My first session was with DB Longboards rider Spencer Smith and we hit up a few spots in Seattle to do some downhill longboarding and freeriding on the new Keystone Longboard. And here is a photo sequence I captured of Spencer gripping through one of the turns on the longboard run we found. The following day I went out to shoot with Seattle longboarder Jackson Wells who rides for Atlas Trucks. We ventured to a couple different spots around Seattle and worked on a new video featuring Atlas’s new Ultralight 8mm Truck. Here’s a few photos of Jackson. A few days later I ventured out with Cloud Ride Wheels team rider Nick DiVona to check on some hills I found using Google Maps and Google Street view. a bunch of the spots either were flat or had horrible concrete, but we managed to find a couple new spots that are great near Mount Rainier that you can see below. On Mother’s Day I ventured to Everett where I grew up to see my mom and went on […]
It has been a beautiful spring in the Pacific Northwest. Every Saturday I usually venture out to one of the local parks in Seattle and here is a bunch of photos from those mini adventures. Some of the places these photos were captured at are 15th street, Washington Park Arboretum, Seward Park. And a little more detailed view of the spring colors in Seattle. Another fun thing to do at Seward Park is longboard. My girlfriend Alyne and I grabbed our DB Longboards and cruised around the loop and along the waterline of Lake Washington.
