As a confirmed denizen of the small hours of the morning – an early field trip to the city seemed quite reasonable. I’ll photograph the sunrise from Queen Anne Hill – tunes, car, coffee, camera and tri-pod – off I went.
Now, I realize I shoot with a Lumix point and shoot, have limited patience for technically fiddly things, and don’t own a copy of Photoshop – but that doesn’t stop me from imagining fantastic photos.
Despite my best intentions the results were neither here nor there. I was going to consign this outing to the hard drive, but I’m going to share it anyway. This blog is about photography – it’s not always perfect. I take pictures for fun – so join me in poking some fun at myself.
Seattle is on a hill – but the off true tree horizon could give you motion sickness. I was focused on how big Mt. Rainier is compared to the city… failed to consider the entire frame.
Red monster reaches for airplane? I don’t know what I thought I was capturing, but flat, boring and out of focus is what happened.
Since I was stuck at the crossing anyway – let’s play with the shutter setting. Overexposed sky – oh well, I wasn’t even thinking about the sky when I took the shot.
I won’t subject you to any more for now. I did get a couple worth saving, I’ll share another day. I celebrate the talent and skill of the other photographers contributing to this blog. They have shared some nice work – what they do is harder than it looks.
We all have some mistakes – but keep shooting. It’s a lot of fun.
