Photo of the Day – Contrasting Art

Today’s photo comes from a neat art installation from the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Rare is a bright, clear blue sky day in Seattle, Washington. When they do happen, however, they’re something to behold. I found this red toned art against the blue skies quite striking.

Photo of the Day – South Lake Union Boats and Planes

Another photo from my weekend trip to Seattle, Washington. South Lake Union and the steam paddle boat, the sail boats, the seaplanes and off in the distance, Bridges… There’s all manner of transportation around.

Photo of the Day – Blue Reeds

This photo, another from the Chihuly Garden & Glass gallery in Seattle, Washington is awesome. The staging of the old growth timber, foliage and the bright blue skies that surrounded it was incredible.

Photo of the Day – Confetti Glass

Another shot from the Chihuly Gardens in Seattle, Washington. This piece really was amazing, such color and intricacies. It really was breathtaking and moving. So many things to see…

Photo of the Day – Spiked Flower

Wow. Still breathless from the Chihuly Glass and Gardens gallery in Downtown Seattle. Over the next few days I will probably showcase quite a few of his great glass pieces. This one, with the scenery, made for a great photo.

Photo of the Day – Lake Washington

Photo of the Day – Dave Niehaus

If you’re a Mariners fan, then the name Dave Niehaus is super familiar to you. If you’re not an M’s fan, then here you go. Dave was THE VOICE of the Mariners. Whenever I could, I would listen to the Mariners games and his voice would be the one calling the shots. Alas, Dave left…

Photo of the Day – Safeco Field

I had the good fortune of attending a Seattle Mariners baseball game on July 3rd. The seats were fantastic. Right behind Ichiro Suzuki! Tried to get his autograph, he didn’t come close enough.
