    Critique Welcomed The Space Needle in Winter

    The Winter of '20, I think. Maybe '21. Since I lived fairly nearby my daily exercise often included a walk through Seattle Center--where the Space Needle is--and I had plenty of opportunities to shoot pictures of it. Infrared with Sigma Quattro SD, Sigma 30/1.4 and Hoya R72 filter.

    Actually pigeons,...on the canopy that covers the Helix Pedestrian Bridge in Seattle. IR with Sigma Quattro SD, Sigma 30/1.4 and Hoya R72 filter.

    Critique Welcomed Googie Meets Gehry

    I've been working on refreshing my website over the past couple of days and one of my pages is called "Googie Meets Gehry." It's a series of pictures of the Seattle Space Needle and the Museum of Pop Culture, both of which are prominent structures in Seattle Center. "Googie" is a type of...

    Arbortecture III

    Time to get those trees trimmed I'd say. A home in Seattle. (Infrared with Sigma Quattro SD, Sigma 30/1.4 ART and Hoya R72 filter.)

    Critique Welcomed Arbortecture II

    The Winter's annual defoliation provides a gradual reveal: It's the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. (An infrared image taken with a Sigma Quattro SD, Sigma 30/1.4 ART lens and a Hoya R72 filter)

    Critique Welcomed Discovery Park

    Discovery Park in Seattle was once a military installation, Ft. Lawton, which I think was opened in 1900. The buildings there are all ex-military housing (officers' homes) or administration. The mountains on the horizon are the Olympics, so in this view you are seeing the Olympic Peninsula...

    Critique Welcomed Arbortecture (or maybe Archiflora?)

    A deciduous tree of some species against the backdrop of the Frank Gehry-designed Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. Digital infrared with Sigma Quattro SD (IR Cut filter removed), Sigma 30/1.4 ART lens, and Hoya R72 filter.

    Solar Boiler (or Bye Bye Birdie)

    This is one of three solar boilers at the Ivanpah Solar Generating System in the Mojave Desert of California. It's just over the state line from Nevada. Sadly the boilers are so hot that birds that fly too close get fried. (A nice feature of the newly-redesigned RPF is that naming a post...

    Critique Welcomed March of the Tulips

    They seem to me to have a martial bearing, at least to me. Hence the title. Tulips are a big thing in the Skagit Valley of Washington State (which is where I took this picture) and they're in full bloom this time of year. I used this one yesterday as my 59th weekly print for Ukraine. Sigma...

    Critique Welcomed Inflection Point

    The Rainier Square Tower in Seattle is quite an interesting building. It sits adjacent to the Rainier Tower, designed by Minoru Yamasaki (the architect who designed World Trade Center in New York) which is famous for its tapered pedestal. When I moved to Seattle in 2020 the first building that...

    Critique Welcomed The Curious Cow

    Tomorrow I will launch image number 18 of my weekly A Print for Ukraine project. (I guess it's been a while since I posted an image here on RPF because when I last did so I think it was print number 1 or 2 in the series. Anyway, 18 weeks have flown in.) Here is the one I'll be posting tomorrow...

    Critique Welcomed Josh Wilson Road

    I don't know who Josh Wilson is or was but this is a section of a road named after him. (Perhaps he is or was a local farmer, since roads round these parts are sometimes named for a person or family who live nearby.) This is in the Skagit Valley of Washington State, USA. As you can see in the...

    Critique Welcomed Smokestacks (not!)

    I suppose it may look as if that second funnel is emitting steam or gas or something, at least it does to me. But it's not. That's actually just a cloud above the funnel. These funnels are mere air vents at the north end of the underground portion of Highway 99 in Seattle. There is an identical...

    Critique Welcomed A Devotee of the Sea-Rock Cult

    West Beach, Oak Harbor, Washington. Infrared with Sigma Quattro Sd, Sigma 30/1.4 and Hoya R72 filter.

    Critique Welcomed The Ridge Trail

    Critique Welcomed Metropolis 2021

    When I first saw this image I immediately thought of Fritz Lang's sci-fi classic Metropolis. It's the Nexus building in Seattle. Infrared with Sigma Quattro Sd, Sigma 30/1.4 and Hoya R72 filter.

    Critique Welcomed The West Point Lighthouse

    This lighthouse is located in Discovery Park in Seattle. It has been in service since 1881 I believe, and is still a working lighthouse today. Infrared with Sigma Quattro Sd, Sigma 30/1.4 and Hoya R72 filter.
