Hi Folks!

Kim asked me to guest spot for her on the blog while she enjoys some holiday travel. Like Kim, I gad about town with my camera a lot and shoot whatever strikes my fancy.

This scene caught my eye a few weeks ago down on Pier 66.

When taking photographs of Seattle's skyline, it can be a challenge to avoid the Space Needle - a challenge not unlike the one a moth would face if trying to avoid a lamp. But it can be done.

That's wow! Nice shot.

Say my hello to Kim.

Must really be a challenge if you have to take the shot through a peephole ;D

Love the blues and roses in this photo!

Reminds me of the opening credits to most James Bond films. Good find.

I like a photographic challenge. This is a terrific image, the perspective and the colour.

Penseroso said...

Thanks, guys!

This was a lucky find and almost an afterthought. I remember thinking, "What the heck - let's try this". So much for location scouting and careful planning! Sometimes it's all about chance.

Fredrik said...

Stunning! What are you shooting through?

Dan said...

Wonderful image. Reminds me of the old 007 intro!

@ cara: there's so much to tell. right now, suffice it to say they're keeping my lap warm - which is much appreciated!

@ Fredrik: it's some kind of modern sculpture. I leaned against it and propped my elbows on it to get this shot.
