On a Sunday, Street in Seattle

Georgetown Vanished

Over the past 10 years I have been photographing two Seattle neighborhoods, South Park and Georgetown. Both neighborhoods have been going through a lot of changes, but more so in the case of Georgetown. This wall is now gone.

The above brick wall was part of the massive. brick structure of the old Seattle Brewery. Today, this wall is gone. At the time I shot these images the walls were propped up or stabilized, on the back side, with large, steel rods or beams ( it wouldn’t take much of an earthquake to being them down). Arched windows, signage and other brick details are really cool and add so much character. Details, that today, would never even be a consideration in constructing a building, brick or otherwise.

My next posting will be of another old structure, Seattle Flour Company in West Seattle.

Vespa Redux

I’ve taken photos of this former Vespa Club of Seattle building before. Now, there is a new mural on part of the wall so I thought it was worth another look.

Oh Snap!

Some old fashioned advertising in Georgetown, Seattle.

I’m not sure what this was meant to be-Merman or Mermaid or? Some kind of sea creature?

Mystery is part of the fun and charm :-).

I dug around in my lens collection last week and found a 50mm 1.8 Nikon lens I hadn’t used in years, if ever. I was watching a video lesson online about street photography and the photographer was using a 50mm lens, which is something I haven’t thought to do when I do street shooting. The lens forces you to get a little closer to your subject, but the results seem pretty cool. So…. this was my first foray into playing around with an old lens. I was pretty happy with the results. Since it is a prime lens and not a zoom, you do all of your focusing with your feet as opposed to the lens. That was one or the points I remember from a photography class I took with The Mountaineers nearly ten years ago; one of the guest lecturers pushed the point the ‘focussing with your feet’ is the best approach in some situations.

Sage advice. If anyone in Seattle is ever interested in a one week photo workshop I highly recommend the one The Mountaineers put on. Very reasonable price-wise and just really interesting classes as well as a field trip every Saturday or Sunday. I’ll never forget my experience. I was, at that time, about the only person in the 100 group that shot in film! I was using my Minolta X700 and everyone else had digital cameras. But, that was okay. I needed more film time and the info transfers pretty good to the digital format.
