Foggy Morning Pajamas

A foggy morning provided a few minutes of good photography as my daughter and friends (here, her friend Ainsley) looked out our hotel room window at Great Wolf Lodge. Taking most pictures of these girls needs to be surreptitious these days, because they want to mug for the camera instead of pose. (Click the photo to view it larger.)

Branches and Rust

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 surprise.

I cropped the image as a square anticipating I’d publish it to my Instagram feed (go subscribe if you don’t already), but then ended up preferring that aspect ratio for the version uploaded to Flickr, too. I’m still getting used to framing photos to fit the content, and not just sticking to the camera’s default size. It’s quite freeing, and lets me concentrate on the image itself instead of trying to shoehorn a particular dimension.
