From the train

I did a day trip up to Vancouver BC a few days ago and popped this off on the train up in the morning.



Tiny Cone


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.

Forest Path Shadows


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.


The Freeway


When I find someplace that I think is pretty, I’ll sit there and watch the world happen.


Old Train Bridge


While waiting for this time-lapse I kept myself busy under seemingly still skies. Watching it after the fact was mesmerizing┬áto see the turmoil that was actually happening above me. (Sorry about the big file, I didn’t have the heart to make it shorter)


Rolling Clouds


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.



The Lovely Things at the Zoo


Today I went to the zoo with my buddy. T’was a lovely time and we’ll being going again in a couple weeks! As has become the norm, this was shot on my phone. Phones are pretty crazy these days.


The Hike Down

Lake Serene 1

A couple of quick images from hiking last weekend with my roommate and his girlfriend. Lightly experimenting with putting alternate colors into images.

Lake Serene 2

The Edge of the World

It looks like it has meaning and quality till you look closer.


Babar’s Piano Recital


The crowd is cheering because Babar is the king, and he’d throw them in the stockades if they didn’t…
