Watching reflections is always enjoyable. This held true on the fourth of July as well.
I spent the night watching for the flicker of a lighter, then get ready to start the long exposure.
The glowing orb is the moon. It’s been bright these past nights.
I have dozens of these, but I feel like the novelty of it wears off quick.
But I may as well include one more for good measure.
And to follow the tradition, I took some normal fireworks photos as well.
This looks small, but for scale reference, look at the house and the people in the lower left corner. It was definitely not small.
This looks like a palm tree, which means it’s about time for me to make like a tree and leaf!

As the Memorial Day fair was being set up in Portland.
This was an experiment with doing macro time-lapse. (The pinecone is about the size of your thumbnail) I thought it would be interesting to have shadows move over the pinecone, but it turned out it was much more interesting just having it in the sun and watching it open up some. I will definitely be playing with this more.
Pools of light are the most mobil pools around. Honestly I was taking a nap on the side of the trail over the 30 minutes or so this was cooking. The temperature was just too comfortable not to.
When I find someplace that I think is pretty, I’ll sit there and watch the world happen.
While waiting for this time-lapse I kept myself busy under seemingly still skies. Watching it after the fact was mesmerizing to see the turmoil that was actually happening above me. (Sorry about the big file, I didn’t have the heart to make it shorter)
Last week I took a much needed day off and time-lapsed a few clouds. I love watching time-lapse of clouds. It gives them life and movement that are almost impossible to grasp by just watching them in person. Soon as to changes the speed and context though, they give the sky a mood and a story.
These were in about a 4 mile area in the hills outside of Wenatchee.
The day was lovely enough, that even with four applications of sunblock, I managed to get sunburns.
For those of you who didn’t ride the bus across the city today, I time-lapsed it for you so you can feel like you did!
Alternatively, you can watch the clock on the bus and see how long I held as still as I could in the center back seat of the bus. I locked it down with my awkward.
