A three-tiered chandelier made of brightly colored glass hangs in the atrium at Lincoln Square in downtown Bellevue. Local artist Dale Chihuly installed the piece in 2006. Nearly 10 years later it still inspires passersby to look up.
In this photo, I like how the sunlight illuminates the top of the glass tower, making the colors pop, but the bottom is hidden in shadow.
Denny’s Pet World in Redmond, Washington, is home to Tiki, a scarlet macaw, who seems both friendly and intelligent. She often says “hello” to visitors who stop by to see the exotic birds on display.
The Space Needle shines like a beacon in central Seattle at dusk. The 605-foot observation tower was built for the 1962 World’s Fair at Seattle Center. On clear days, visitors enjoy 360-degree views of Mt. Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, and downtown Seattle.
More than 3,000 cubes are stacked like Tetris blocks inside a gallery at the EMP in Seattle. The museum’s Indie Game Revolution features about 20 indie games, including one of my favorites, Broken Age.
I love how the gallery’s bright colors and pixelated shapes make the viewer feel as if she just stepped into a video game.
Colorful suitcases spin above a baggage claim carousel at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Perhaps lost luggage gets turned into art?
I am embarking on a creative journey in 2015. I plan to take a photo a day for an entire year to improve my photography skills. I hope to have some fun along the way.
I have always loved photography and take tons of pictures when I travel. I appreciate how photographs can tell stories, capture emotions, and preserve memories.
The subject of my photos this year will vary depending on what’s going on in my life, but my interests include nature, travel, food, and art.
My first photo of 2015 portrays the cold winter we’ve been having in the Seattle area. The jagged lines of some cracked ice caught my eye during an afternoon walk around my neighborhood. I also liked the contrast of the bright green moss.
