Sweet 16 in Seattle

Sweet 16 in Seattle

Forever a free spirit, my parents asked me what I wanted to do for my 16th birthday and my response was to go to Seattle instead of having a party. With a little bit of convincing, I even got them to take me all the way to Aberdeen, Washington, the hometown of Kurt Cobain, singer of 90’s grunge band, Nirvana.

A woman never reveals her age, and although I usually think that’s bogus, you can use your imagination this time to figure out the year this photograph was taken, and with what camera, although it is indeed a digital photograph.

With the stunning North-West clouds being accented by the sunset on that February evening, I captured the skyline (cityscape? I don’t actually know the difference) with the infamous protruding Space Needle being the prominent point of interest. I believe we were stuck in traffic (typical of Seattle) on the highway and I took this through the window of my parent’s car.

Hermosa Beach, California

Hermosa Beach, California

This photograph was taken while I was on tour with Warped Tour in 2010. I stopped in California for a few shows in late August and while in the area, I stayed with a relative who lives just a few blocks from the gorgeous sandy beaches of southern California.

Hermosa Beach is a tight-knit beach community in Torrance, California which is a suburb of Los Angeles. My favourite spot was the long boardwalk by the sea where I could whip out my roller skates and glide along the ocean. As much culture as Venice Beach may have, the quiet serenity of Hermosa in the early hours of the morning made me glad to be outside of one of the world’s largest cities, while being mere minutes from the opportunities in the city.

 

Although, I probably should have stopped roller skating to take this picture. My balance and poise kept me (and my camera) vertical, though!

Fountains of Bellagio – Las Vegas

Fountains of Bellagio - Las Vegas

This shot of the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas was taken in May of 2012. Even though summer had yet to begin, the heat of the dessert was something I had never experienced before. I found a spot in the shade around the walkway that surrounds the fountain and within a few minutes, the fountains begun their show.

This shot is from the Bellagio side of the man-made lake in front of the casino resort, so what you see in the image is a view of the Las Vegas Strip beyond the water. The fish-eye lens on my camera lets you see the entirety of the massive fountains, but I chose a picture without the monstrous heights that the water climbs to because I felt the water shooting out to where I was standing added a bit more depth to the composition.

Anyways, hope you enjoy it!
