Hawaii – Jumpers

without comments

Recently went to Hawaii, took a lot of photos but here were a few that… [sunglasses] jumped off the screen. Enough, Miko. The top photo is looking over Diamond Head and Honolulu, the bottom two are both at the summit of Haleakala on Maui.

Tampa Bay, FL

without comments

Top picture, the Howard Franklin Bridge (I-295) that connects St. Petersburg to Tampa: took this pretty soon after take-off from TPA, going against the No Electronics rule… Oops.

Middle & Bottom pictures, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge connecting St. Petersburg to Tierra Ceia: took these from a moving car going over the bridge into some serious fog. We’d never driven over before and had no idea the bridge went so high (we’re used to flat, floating bridges in Seattle…) and the fog made it all seem like it disappeared into ghost world.

Spent a week in Cape Cod with a few friends this summer. Here’s some pics from the beaches we visited and various amounts of sunlight.

Chicago, IL

without comments

Made it to Chicago, seriously a great city. History, culture, restaurants, architecture, and lots of interesting characters. We missed out on two things during our brief stay here, one being the Sears Tower and the other being Wrigley Field (the Cubs were away). The only thing I’d change for that trip was the weather–108F isn’t cool at all.┬áSeriously though.

Election Night 2012

without comments

A few pictures I took at an Election Night party in Seattle at Neumos. These pictures were from when they projected Obama to win reelection, gay marriage to pass and marijuana legalized. Washington!

Mt. Si, Washington

without comments

Recently went hiking up Mt. Si, about 40 miles outside of Seattle. The top picture is me facing towards Snoqualmie, bottom-left is my aunt and uncle, bottom-right is the view facing towards Mt. Rainier. It was too hazy to really see Mt. Rainier which is a damn shame.

San Francisco, CA

Went on a quick weekend trip to San Francisco and I took hella pictures. Clockwise from top-left: on the Market Street cablecar; Coco Crisp vs. the Seattle Mariners (we won); ice-cold Coca-Cola; a hipster palm tree at Dolores Park.

Golden Hour – Thorp, WA

without comments

Golden hour off the side of I-90 near Thorp, Washington. I’m not sure how my cousin and I made it to this spot but we were in the right place at the right time.

McCaw Hall, Seattle – 2003

without comments

McCaw Hall, Seattle

This picture might just be the one that ‘started it all’ for me. It was definitely not the first picture I took, nor was it the best–but it was probably the first time that I took a picture and really went, “Wow, I did that.” It was 2003 and there really weren’t too many digital cameras around, but I’d had my little brick-like Sony DSC-S30 for about two years by then. My friends and I always seemed to end up at Seattle Center when we wanted to go on a photography adventure and this was taken right outside of Seattle’s opera house, McCaw Hall. It had just rained so the ground was reflective and everything seemed to sparkle.

I posted it up on DeviantArt (this really dates me) a few days afterwards and it was a Daily Top Favorite, over 18,000 views, 650 favorites, and 320 comments. Talk about confidence boost.

Husky Stadium

Last year they began tearing down Husky Stadium at the University of Washington for renovations. Some friends and I went down to watch one of the last games played there and the lighting was magical. We won too.
