Palouse Falls

Here is the recipe:

  • Take 3 slightly wacky landscape photographers
  • Add a 2 hour roadtrip
  • “sprinkle” a few rain showers and some stormclouds
  • drop 198 feet into the pool below
  • finally, stir in some fleeting sunset light that feathers the bottom of the clouds.

Presto!  Epic Palouse Falls imagery!

Seattle’s Fremont District

I had the opportunity to go to Seattle and spend the better part of a day just wandering around and taking photos.  Of course, the weather was not favorable, it rained most of the way driving over and all night. The next morning, the rain began to let up.  I visited Glazers Camera in the morning since we no longer have a “real” camera shop in Spokane.  When I came out, the rain had stopped and I headed out to see what I could find.  I ended up a few miles away in the Fremont District.  Also known as the ‘center of the universe’ and ‘The Artists Republic of Fremont,’ there are lots of cool little shops, artwork, and eclectic folks around.  Both Google and Adobe software have offices here as well.

According to the sign, the middle of this busy intersection is the Center of the Universe!

Heidi

I met Heidi through Model Mayhem (#526682) and we shot some stuff back in the fall when the leaves were changing.  I was feeling the winter blahs and wanted to shoot, so I asked Heidi, and she said yes!  The concept was a little bit film noir and a little bit pin-up.  I feel as a concept it could be better, but the images look great!  Enjoy them, and please share your thoughts!
