Seattle (Post 4 of 4) EMP Museum

This is the final in a series of 4 posts that I started on Monday. As part of my visit to Seattle, I wanted to make an effort to stop by the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project). The building was designed by Frank O. Gehry. He was influenced by the electric guitar and that was the basis for the fundamental design of the building. EMP’s exterior conveys all the energy and fluidity of music. I spent a couple days here and could have easily spent a couple more. One of the interesting aspects of photographing here is the building changes as the sunlight moves.

Seattle (Post 3 of 4) Chihuly Garden & Glass

This is the 3rd in a series of 4 posts that I started on Monday. During my visit to Seattle, I took some extra time to visit and explore the Chihuly Garden and Glass facility located next to the Space Needle. I love all types of glass artwork. This place is the pinnacle of some of the most absolutely amazing glass art I have ever seen. If you are ever in the Seattle area it is an absolute “must see”.

Seattle (Post 2 of 4)

This is a follow up post from yesterday. The images in this post include more of a graphic element, not necessarily conventional shots of Seattle. I also include color and black & white images together.

Seattle (Post 1 of 4)

This past fall I had the opportunity to do a couple of workshops for Glazer’s Camera and Amazon in Seattle, Washington on behalf of Olympus. I had not been there in 20+ years. I must say, I was more than impressed. The people were friendly, the weather was great and the environment, in general, was fantastic. I extended my stay by a couple of days and was glad I did. I’m looking forward to going back. I am going to break the Seattle posts into four (General, Graphic, Chihuly & EMP). This first post will be general overviews and landscapes.

A Very Cold Day at Trexler Park

Yesterday was an extremely cold and snowy day in the Lehigh Valley. I decided I would take the Olympus TG-3 out for a hike in Trexler Park. The camera held up very well. That’s more than I can say for my fingers. I’m ready for spring!

Philly at Night

Tuesday evening, a couple of Olympus shooters (Mike Boening & Victoria Diaz) invited me to join them for another Philly shoot. However, in comparison to the shoot a few weeks ago, this one took place well after sunset. Of course we picked a time where the temperatures approached the teens again. Not withstanding the temperature, we had a great time and got some fun shots. My images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and in most cases I used “Live Composite” or “Live View” modes. You will notice in the one image looking down the river, there were helicopters circling behind the Cira Center. This was a 20+ minute exposure and made for some interesting light effects.

Las Vegas – A Higher Point of View

I was in Las Vegas the better part of this week for a business conference. Of course I took my gear with me. I wanted to try a different point of view and decided I would try for higher ground. The following images were shot from the Eiffel Tower and the High Roller (the world’s tallest observation wheel). All were handheld and shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.
