The Seattle Photographer

seattle-photo-photography-photographer-city-cities-urban-freeway-concrete-clouds-sky-weatherWouldn’t you know it… RAIN!

I had four fall photo shoots ready to go today and then 80% chance of rain and blustery conditions. And that is just par for the course in the Pacific Northwest.

As I peek out the window the clouds are dark grey mixed with dull white. They are racing past the window. The evergreens are swaying back and forth. Looks almost like Kansas outside my Snohomish, Washington window and reminds me of something out of the Wizard of Oz.

Any who… I was inspired to share this recent photograph I captured off Western Avenue in Seattle. The lonely metrosexual photographer facing the Puget Sound and capturing the moment under threat of rain. This is a typical weather scene here in the Pacific Northwest.

I certainly hope you enjoy my photography. If you own a business, are a professional such as realtor, mortgage broker, insurance guru, or play professional sports, this and other one23image photos would look spectacular adorning your spaces. Come see my gallery and have a look see. If you need something specific, please send me an email.

Happy fall day to all of you.

The Hayride for Happiness

hayride-bobs corn-pumkin-farm-fall-motivation-attitudeLife can be simple and relaxing like a hayride… or barbary like a rusty barb wire fence. I would love to choose hayride first and today I cannot. Today I am climbing that barb wire fence to visit my daughter in jail. Not the moment in life I expected. Not one for the family scrap book.

And so I feel compelled to write and share this hayride photo. When I see it I am able to breath easier. My soul seems to soar with waves of tranquility. Just what I need for this black moment in life.

For the past five years I have used my photography as a device to de-stress life. That is all it began as for me. An outlet to release tension, fear, and stress. Photography has helped me smile from the inside out.

When I am behind the lens I am living effortlessly. At that moment I am lost in happiness.

For today, I find the above hayride photograph soothing, reflecting some sense of peace, and ease about this day. We should all live effortless every day by placing ourselves on a relaxing hayride where there is no stress.
