University Street Fair and Gasworks Park

Last Sunday the 22nd was the University Street Fair, and my friends and I decided go to out and shoot some street photography. I hadn’t done any dedicated street photography for some time now, so it was a welcome change to most of the other types of things I’ve been shooting lately. I only brought my Nikkor 50mm ƒ1.4 and 85mm ƒ1.8 with my D700 and quite honestly, I didn’t miss the zoom at all. There were plenty of things […]

The East Coast Family

No, I’m not talking about “Boyz II Men, ABC, and BBD” here 🙂  Last month, a bunch of my relatives from my mom’s side of the family visited us from the east of the Mississippi as they went on a cruise up to Alaska.  They weren’t able to stay in Seattle very long, so I made it a point to take a bunch of photos of them during their short stay.  Most of these photos were taken at my uncle’s […]
