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.

Shanghai Winter Nightscape

Shanghai Winter Nightscape

I made this exposure from my hotel room in the Jingan District of Shanghai during my trip in February. Shanghai winter nights are usually foggy-hazy-dewy but I was lucky on this particular evening. I was even more lucky to have the company that I had on the trip. Family and old friends Bernard, Cal, Chris, Pete, Sam and Tim all made it over. Thanks also to local hosts Eric, ML and TS. What a crew! What a time!
