Welcome to the Pacific Northwest, heading up to Seattle. I don’t know which peak this is but she’s a beaut.
A short visit for Fireworks From The SKY.
Fireworks As Seen From the Jewel Box in the Sky.
I hauled my tripod in my carryon bag all the way up from LA. I’m hoping it was the crazy wind on our 27th floor balcony that made those lights that should have been still look otherwise and not that I didn’t do the whole mirror up/cable release thing because then it would be my fault and we don’t want that.
And in last night’s test, when it wasn’t so windy, this didn’t happen. But maybe it was the amount of telephoto, or the other things, or something else. Next year if the universe is kind I’ll have a new camera and have to figure it out all over again.
It was perfectly great fun with displays popping up everywhere we looked around the city, across the bay, up the ridge lines – it was totally cool.
Lucas, Betsy, Xander, and Anya came over from Edmunds for a visit. Yay!
Here’s Anya in front of the welcoming mural at the Seattle Art Museum’s Sculpture Garden. And here she is Anya in 2008 in Barcelona. Good job Anya.
Xander is parkour-boy these days and he was able to exhibit many of his skills around the park including pulling himself onto the top of an 7 foot wall in one smooth move. Here we see him using his father as an obstacle to be overcome.
Anya is doing a drama program for the summer and they will put on a play at the end of August. She has a big part and many lines to learn, and songs to sing. We got to hear a little preview and it’s going to be great!
