I haven’t posted anything from Seattle for a while. This image brings to mind Seattle photographer John Cornicello who works near this location and regularly post pictures of the Fremont Bridge to his Facebook profile.

The December Desktop Wallpaper

The December desktop wallpaper is here!

This month’s desktop is of a large bridge in Newport, Oregon. They call it the Yaquina (ya-kwi-na) Bay Bridge, since it crosses Yaquina Bay. Also, don’t forget that my wall calendars for 2012 are now available also.

There are three versions available, including one for iPad (without the calendar). You can click on the photo below for the 1280×853 resolution version, or click on the links below for the resolution of your choice.

Under the Aurora Bridge

I have a guest post on the popular travel blog foXnoMad with 5 ways to take better sunset photos while traveling. There’s also a great review of my ebook Capturing the Journey over at Heather on Her Travels. There’s also another nice review at Twenty-something Travel.

Seattle’s Aurora Bridge on Highway 99 passes over the neighborhood of Fremont and the ship canal. Although it’s officially called the George Washington Memorial Bridge, no one ever refers to it by that name, and most locals probably don’t even know that’s its name. (I didn’t until I researched it for this blog post.) Dedicated in 1932, it’s been one of the most ‘popular’ jumping off points for those desiring to end it all until recently when suicide barriers were erected. Also among its storied history is an incident that occurred shortly after I moved to Seattle in the 90’s where a crazy person shot a bus driver as he was crossing the bridge causing the bus to careen through the guardrail and crash to the streets below, killing several passengers. Even so, it remains a photogenic structure.

The Pier at Bradley’s Head

My access to internet has been rather sporadic and undependable lately. I can’t say whether it will improve anytime soon or not. That’s one of the facts of life one faces when traveling. I usually strive to make a post here every other day, but there are times it just isn’t going to happen. Thanks for sticking around and checking back in.

As a follow-up to a recent post on light painting, here’s another image where I manually fired the flash to highlight specific areas of the composition.
