Monorail to the Future: Reboot (EMP Museum, Seattle)

This is a shot I tool in late 2013 when I lived in Seattle. The original process used HDR, which I have always thought made it a little noisy. Today I reworked it for a contest. See what you think. (Original follows.)

I took my nice new Nikon 200-500 lens out and practiced trespassing near WA-520 to see if I could get a cormorant pretending to be a fire lizard.  I need a little more range, but the model was cooperative 🙂

Waves

Wing Luke Museum
I find curated spaces to be fascinating. This small passage way was as interesting as the larger rooms it connected. The lines, paint color, lighting, and balance of objects made for a pleasant journey as the waves washed you into the next room.

The bear was both comfort and witness.

I shot this at the Wing Luke Museum – Belonging: Before and After the Immigration Act of 1965 . This case was part of a group of objects from the Japanese American internment camps from the second world war. I found the only way I could photograph this was from behind…leaving the bear to tell the story.

From my Stained Glass period…

Backlit Tulip, Seattle

Of course, my “stained glass” period is pretty much ongoing. I have several of these taken annually.

One of my first photographic loves is macro and near-macro images of flowers. This is from Sara’s Iris garden here in Seattle. Taken this spring on a mostly cloudy day.
