Week 31 | January 11 – 17, 2020

Woke up thinking I took no shots this week. Checked the camera and remembered the snow. That’s what cameras and pictures can do; help unleash those memories. That mine were only a few days old and lost tells me…what?

Delayed starts to school earlier in the week. Wednesday was cancelled all together.

Not many shots to pick from this week. Cold pushes me inside.

Week 30 | January 4 – 10, 2020

Winter is here. Dark days with rain. Wind comes off Puget Sound and everything is colder than the temperature gauge. Next week forecast is snow. At least snow can be photographed.

Conspiring with the weather, the legal workload has been high and will probably grow higher in the next couple of months. I can’t and won’t complain. It’s good, challenging work.

Digging through my meager batch of snaps, I’ve selected a few. All JPEGs, of course. Classic Chrome. But posting them only out of obligation. I doubt any make a “best of” list.

Here you go:

Green Lake | JPEG Presets | Fuji x100f

Minimal Lightroom edits. Maybe I crop a bit or slightly adjust the exposure. I have no idea what are sliders or brushes. Clarity is what I get if I ponder for awhile. RAW is sushi.

A short trip to the old aqua park at Green Lake. Missed the Led Zeppelin concert by a half century. But got some nice captures using my new presets.

Shots are JPEG (Pro Neg High) (Monochrome-R) with some in camera adjustments. A bit of cropping.

Enough with the technical jargon, here they are:

Week 23 | November 16 – 22, 2019

Work is busy. But I spend two mornings a week shooting. A Sunday trip (there and back) over the mountains yielded several great captures.

I’ve reprogrammed the JPEG settings on my x 100f. I’m enjoying the changes. Less Classic Chrome more Pro Neg High.

Winter is on the doorstep. Soon snow will fall on the mountain passes. Rain and wind will drive us inside (too much).

Here’s some shots from the past week:

Week 17 | October 5 to 11, 2019

A bitter cold front moved through early in the week; almost like we were going to skip fall.

The Magnolia Library photo is one of a series I took after discovering the excellent architecture library at Society of Architecture Historians.

Fremont is a common and often photographed area for me. As e with Green Lake.
