Another window macro

N8 | The rain on a window combined with the flash makes for an interesting shot. You can see the Capitol Records Christmas tree in the background.

Seattle Night and Day

N8 | Night shot from a Seattle Ferry.

N8 | Same shot in the morning

I unintentionally shot this night and day comparison with the N8. You can see some camera shake if you look at the Space Needle.

Seattle has Chocolate Bacon Martinis

Chocolate Bacon Martini
N8 | Delish!

After an hour's bus ride from Bellevue to downtown Seattle, I walked around for half a mile trying to find the Capitol Club while dragging along my big heavy backpack. I looked in and found the place empty. I walked upstairs and found the bar. The place had a Mediterranean vibe and their menu reflected it with lamb on the menu. But I wasn't there for lamb, I was there for the club's specialty: the chocolate bacon martini.

The CBM took a few minutes to prepare. The chocolate was smooth while the bacon vodka bites back sharp. You can't really taste the bacon without the bacon salt that adorns the rim. The happy hour price was only $9 for something that I would have gladly have paid $20 for.

If you ever visit Seattle, put this on your to do list.

Seattle light comparison

I sat at a park just north of Pike Place Market. It was interesting to see spikes at the top of the two totem poles there to ward off birds.

N97 | Gloomy light conditions because the sun wasn't out. The brown building in the center caught my eye, I like its design.

N97 | The sun was out when I shot this. Much better and I caught a seagull in mid flight.

I watched the clouds in wonder. There were low dark grey clouds headed north while high above were white clouds heading south.

N8 | I love this low light shot of a fountain at a mall in Huntington Beach.

Los Feliz 3

N8 | I saw The Social Network here. Nice theater, but small. Sit up front because lights in the back are distracting.

Walking around the Sepulveda Dam

I spent last Thursday at the Sepulveda Wildlife Reserve here in Van Nuys. The sunny afternoon light provided for some great shots with the N8.
