Rainy Seattle, 2012

Rainy Seattle, 2012

Some friends were passing through town on Thursday evening. It was their first time here so we did some sightseeing. The weather started off okay enough but things quickly went south and by the time we got to the Seattle Center, it was coming down pretty hard. I made this image from the observation deck of the Space Needle. The raindrops were blowing in sideways so I ended up shooting with the 50 mm, a fast lens with a deep hood.

Handheld at 1/15 second at f/2, ISO 1000. Nikon D800E + Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G.

Bangkok’s Chinatown

I made these images in Bangkok about a month ago. I’d been to Chinatown (also known as Yaowarat for the main arterial that runs through it) many times, but usually for dinner or a late night snack. After having seen a photowalk series by a local professional, I was inspired to make a daytime trip. It was the middle of the day and hot and humid as can be, but having found a willing accomplice (thank you, Yui!), we made the trip. These were some of the things that I saw.

All images made with a Nikon D800E + Nikkor AF-S 24-120 f/4.
