Ok, I continue to fail on posting these with any regularity. But I am still shooting at least once a day for my Project 365.
It is somewhat interesting to see what the last couple of weeks have garnered all together in one single post. Well ok, perhaps not, but that’s what I’m telling myself!
On to the photos…
Day 131: Untitled Detail
Sometimes I like to revisit one of my previous photos. This is a detail of one that I’ve hung in a few art shows, “Untitled #1.” It’s currently hanging in our living room.
Day 132: Not in Motion
As much as this looks like motion blur, it’s actually just a reflection in our refrigerator door.
Day 133: Bubbles
This is just a close up shot of a glass of water that had been sitting for a while, so it had created quite a few bubbles.
Day 134: Shallow Depth of Field
On day 134, I was playing around with one of my old manual lenses as I often do for these 365 shots, a Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4. I wanted to see just how shallow the depth of field would be with it opened all the way up and focusing up close.
I started by just shooting the carpet and seeing the very thin line that was in focus. But then decided to throw in a cork to give it a little more context. And just as I was taking the first shot, our little curious cat had a sniff.
Day 135: Mistral Wall
Day 136: Curving
Day 137: View from Up High
On day 137, I shot the Sounders vs. San Jose match. Before the start, I climbed all the way up to the top of the North End to get a wider shot of the whole stadium. I had heard that there was going to be a display of red cards to “Give a Red Card to Racism and Homophobia.” Unfortunately, red doesn’t really show up very well in a mass of people. But I still like the shot of the stadium.
Day 138: Rust and Sky
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and I decided to go for a walk through Seattle Art Museum’s Sculpture Park. I took a bunch of photos, but this was one of my favorites.
Day 139: Light Rays
Day 140: Masonic Shadows
I really liked how the late afternoon light was shining through this mason jar and casting shadows on the wall behind it.
Day 141: Stemware
Day 142: Frosty Moonlight
On day 142, the moon was quite bright even though it was not yet full. This was the view of it through the frosted glass window in our bathroom.
Day 143: Blue Lines
You know that time of the evening, well after the sun has set but before it’s completely dark? My wife loves the color of that sky. This is that color lighting the corrugated metal overhang just beneath a second floor window.
Day 144: Self Shadow
Day 145: Running Start and Olympic Sunset
It was another gorgeous Sunday afternoon. This time I decided to head down to Alki here in West Seattle. I didn’t really have anything planned, I just headed down there a couple hours before sunset. I ended up picking a spot on the sea wall just south of the lighthouse and sat in the same place for over an hour. It was incredibly relaxing. I didn’t take a ton of photos, but here are a couple of my favorites.
