Hope you all had a good Christmas season! Here's a couple of shots from what I got to see over Christmas Day at Whidbey Island:
Happy New Year! To match the celebration of the end of one year and the start of another, here are several of my favorite shots of fireworks:
Last week, I had family in town for a visit, as my sister was getting married. One of the things that we did with them was take a look around the city of Seattle, looking at all the great places there. What you see here is a collection of some of the best pictures I took in our afternoon.
To start off my album of architecture, here is a set of pictures from when my father and I took an overnight trip to Portland, Oregon January 2015. There was plenty we did within that brief two-day period where we got to explore the different parts of the city, getting the most of the culture's weirdness. From Voo-Doo donuts to stepping into a submarine, my dad and I shared some priceless memories there. These pictures below are a collection of one of the highlights that delivered in some spectacular photos: the Japanese Gardens.
I can't think of anything I get a kick out of more behind the camera than getting just the perfect animal shot. They're so much different than photographing people because it's not like you can give them direction in how to pose and expect them to follow: you have no choice but to capture them in their environment. What's even better about it is how each animal has its own unique nature, creating an endless amount of photographic opportunities for every species. Just when you thought you've seen it all, BAM: the animal does something completely unpredictable. Heck, take a look at my shots below, and how I managed to capture a lion in mid-yawn! Wow! I was not expecting to get that!
