Down in the British Virgin Islands, there is this little hut called the Soggy Dollar and will serve a variety of things but their only requirement is that it has to be paid with cash. Which is funny because in order to get to the beach you must jump from your boat and swim to shore due to the way the beach/sand and all of that other confusing things are in this part of the world.
So of course I was interested, then I was even more delighted when I came upon these palm trees and hammock, I spent quite a bit time in there as I had just finished a 10 mile Hike.
Burning bright as the sun shines comforts this tree with its comforting warmth of life. I guess I can be called a tree-hugger but I’m not as diehard tree huggish as some out there but, I do appreciate scenes like this that brings an idea of perfection all of the world.
That perhaps in this moment no wrong is being done to one another and no bad thing is being thought about or embraced.
I wonder if there are architects out there that seeing a building like this, yes a building like this-
This Crushed Can looking building actually sits the place of Seattles Space Center
Getting back, I wonder if architects see this building and get mad. Mad because it broke all the rules!
Or, are there architects out there that rejoice the rule breaking? It seems that in this world of consistent change and fast moving, and everything being instant, Rules are Being Broken.
We have “rules” or perhaps suggestions in photography, but honestly, breaking them is more fun, and it seems to be the thing to do these days….
Creatively speaking that is ; )
Continuing my journey in learning as much as I can about retouching from many greats out there…
But I need practice! So if you want your photo taken and composited in various ways including this one for your own use, let me know, I’d be glad to give it a whack!
Thanks for stopping by!
My Girlfriend Cait took a daring challenge four months ago to attempt a Marathon. Well that day has come and gone and she was Victorious. Finished in 3 hours and 47 minutes. I think I can finish a carton of ice cream in 3 hours, but running 26.2 miles. No Way.
Here is a Video of some of the runners including her in there somewhere. And I also took photos of the event which you can see at my Flickr page here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rainingdreams/sets/72157629856655996/
or variously on my Website here: http://rainingdreams.com/
Also you can see the page speaking of prints if you ran the marathon and wanna print, just let me know and we can work something out… oh the link… http://rainingdreams.com/capital_city_marathon_olympia_wa
This was my first Video, yea, ah, Ever. So be kind in your comments :)
Branching off of the motif of my Seattle Weekend. Here is a classic reflection off of the Seattle Space Center of the ever more impressive landmark of the Seattle Space Needle.
It was of course a reasonably clear night in Seattle. And anyone from here would tell you that either you have Too Many Clouds in Seattle or Not Enough of Them… here is a case of not enough of them. So I tried my darndest to get the most of the frame here in this pic with what I had from the environments.
This weekend me and the Lady went up to seattle, Why? Well this weekend was the only Sun we’ve seen in the past 3 or 70 weeks!?!? its been doom n gloom around here. So what better than making a weekend out of it. The sun was out, the heat was raging awesome at a cool but warm 70+ degrees. My burns on my forehead state that it was a pleasant weekend outside
This photo is the first edited photo from the weekend. I finally was able to take the Nikon D800 outside and play due to the decent weather… I know its “weather sealed” but I didn’t want to take the chance in the monsoon rains we’ve been having.
So far I am loving this cam.
