Ah, the Sunday after Christmas and the rain has melted away all but a trace of snow here in Seattle. I took some shots of the chilled curls of the Salmon Wave sculptures at the locks while they were still snow dressed. I will be spending this week catching up with myself and have asked another of my favorite Seattle photographers to share his particular gifts and vision with us for a week starting tomorrow. This will conclude the guest photographer series.
I have been a follower and admirer of Slightlynorth's camera work for a couple years now through his photostream on Flickr. He shoots all over town and must pack his camera at all times as he is very prolific. He is well acquainted with the huge posse of Seattle's digital photographers who regularly get together for fun and to encourage each other in photography skills. Shawn's images have an edge to them that I really enjoy, often employing a wide angle lens or trying new techniques, and always covering something really interesting and esentially Seattle in a refreshing way. He has documented a lot of Seattle's street art and I have learned a lot about these ephemeral works through his attentive lens. I know he likes a lot of the same things I do: sushi, cats, art, music, this beautiful city, camera gear, people, and a new slant on things. I know you will enjoy seeing his unique insider's take on Seattle and can't wait for you to meet him and experience the scenes he walks through, so take a peek here! Thanks for leaving him comments and welcoming him into the City Daily Photo community this week. Enjoy, and I'll pop in on theme day :-).
