Here in Seattle Washington it is not often that we have clouds, Let me finish…
Clouds that are interesting and dramatic!
Yes, we have clouds, often, it is very frustrating since I believe I have that seasonal affected disorder and the sun brings me Joy.
Back to my point. Taking photos in Seattle outside is difficult, cause either you have absolutely No Clouds or so much cloud coverage there is nothing to take a pic of that incorporates a cool sky,and let’s be honest, we all love a cool dramatic sky.
So on this particular evening it was fun because Finally, a Cool Sky!
Some of the time people think that the cause of their problems are at the fault of others around them, their wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend, kids, friends, family, let’s be honest the list could go on forever
But what if the fault of the issue, or problem or whatever is actually that of the view.
You can’t see the big picture, something is obstructing its view. Perhaps if you find that obstruction you find the root of the issue and Bam crisis solved!
A quiet and nice lil B&B in Olympia WA
I often overlook the special aroma that you feel at a B&B and tend to just jump straight to the idea of a hotel/motel typical places of stay on travels and other various vacations.
I’m going to start broadening my horizons looking for more cozier options, more ma and pop type of places.
Sure it may be more costlier but you have a sense that A: your doing some good with your money for the family, B: the Atmosphere at these types of places you can’t find in a hotel and C: the Service is usually spectacular, because, well, they actually care about your stay as opposed to a 15 yr old bell hop whom throws your luggage around like a football.
All to conclude, B&B’s are cool and so are the more rustic options out there as opposed to your typical “Ramada Inn”.
My girlfriend and I spent a weekend there, just touring around seing the sights. It was of course mostly rainy while we were there, but that didnt dampen our fun.. eh eh get it… dampen! so hilarious I know. I think the next time we go will be in July so perhaps we’ll have better luck then in getting at least a cool sky pic!
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.
Sometimes I find myself embraced, gone, all together lost within my visions, thoughts and ideas. The ideas aren’t always creative either, thoughts like why is this person doing “this” or “that” whether I think it to be logical or plainly doesn’t make sense is irrelevant to them actually doing it. I beleive people have this perspective of me at… no, most of the times. Cause I often have a blank stare happening, but boy if you were to look in my mind wheels are turning faster than a rat wheel. A mouse wheel would have probably been more pleasing to read…. hm. So, the expression take your head out of the camera exists for me when those moments occur. like, Jim, jim, snap out of it. Often I do think about new ways to light things, new ways to set up stuff, and interesting ideas that most likely revolve around the camera.
Is in Mt. Rainier National Park, and turning this bend in the trail I thought man, this trail looks as if I am going to walk right in to the sun if I keep going. Loved it. May be a little hot there, so I just took a pic of it. Some haters out there don’t like Lens Flare, to me I think this authentic showing if it (meaning not photoshopped) really makes the photo pop and add interest, but thats just my in-camera thought… Whats your in-Camera thought??
