Fourth of July, 2015

  For the Fourth of July this year, our neighbors invited us to join them at an office overlooking Lake Union here in Seattle. At first I wasn’t going to bring a camera. I’ve just finished six weeks of constant work to deliver back-to-back book manuscripts, and toting a camera with me felt like work. ...

Boat Street Cafe Morning

My wife and daughter surprised me on my birthday by taking me to Boat Street Cafe for a French breakfast. The meal, the light, and the ambiance, were all delicious.

My Apple Watch Review in the Seattle Times

My review of the Apple Watch appears in today’s Seattle Times: Apple Watch impresses, amuses even though it’s the 1.0 version. My editor wanted a tight review in 700 words, which was hard to do because there’s so much to say about the Apple Watch and because writing shorter is always more difficult than writing ...

Seattle Skyline, Dr Jose Rizal Bridge

Despite living in Seattle for more than 20 years, I’d never been out to photograph the Seattle skyline at Dr Jose Rizal Bridge until last night. Part of that is familiarity: did I really want to make a photo that everyone has seen (and half of everyone has shot)? And part of it is just ...

Crumble & Flake Sunday Morning

I’m saying it now: no visit to Seattle is complete without going to Crumble & Flake. This isn’t a new sentiment, but today seals it for me. My daughter and I have been talking about making a trip to Capitol Hill to get some of the brilliant pastries for weeks, and today was a good ...

Budding Spring in Seattle

I woke up with the feeling that it had been too long since I’d picked up my camera for some focused shooting (even though it’s been just a couple of weeks), so after taking my daughter to school, I grabbed a Car2Go and went to the University of Washington campus to check out the cherry ...

Branches and Rust

(Click to view the image larger at Flickr.) This old wooden warehouse at the southeast edge of Lake Union is covered in vines and branches, currently bare for the winter. In an area where a lot of development is ongoing (a big portion of Amazon.com is located there now), this rustic patch is a nice ...

Christmas Silhouette

I spent part of today traveling to visit relatives for the holiday and part of it going over a photo shoot from last week. This photo was captured using pretty much just the light from the Christmas tree. A few small decorative garlands with lights were also set up, but this was in a big ...

Slo-Mo Snow

It snowed a little last night in Seattle, and today is cold, windy, and sunny—perfect for catching snow flurries in slow motion! (It’s much better if you view the video in 720p HD.) If you like the work I do, please consider signing up for my low-volume newsletter that I use to announce new projects, ...
