A photographer’s journey: Day 9

Families ice skate at the Bellevue Magic Season ice arena in Downtown Park on Friday evening. Lots of children slipped and fell, but one little boy said he just needed more practice.

This weekend will be the last chance to go ice skating downtown until next winter.

A photographer’s journey: Day 8

Construction workers blocked off a section of NE 4th Street in downtown Bellevue today near the Lincoln Square expansion site. During an afternoon walk I counted seven huge construction cranes all within about two miles of each other. Downtown Bellevue will be getting more hotels, apartments, and office towers within the new few years.

A photographer’s journey: Day 7


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.

A photographer’s journey: Day 5

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.

A photographer’s journey: Day 4

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.

A photographer’s journey: Day 2

During my lunch break today I walked by this modern art sculpture near my office in downtown Bellevue. It’s a huge mirrored cube with a split down the middle. I’m not sure what this art piece represents, but I like how it reflects and warps its surroundings, including the viewer. If you look closely, you will see two of me in this picture.
