Experience Music Project, Seattle Layover

For the first time in my life, I made a mistake in my travel plans. I thought I had picked a flight which would get me home at 6:30PM, however, I picked one getting me home at 6:30AM the next day. Yup, a RED-EYE!  You can imagine my dismay! All was not lost though. Ed, a new friend I met on the last Cuba tour, lives on the outskirts of Seattle. I remembered his invite should I ever be in the area and made a call. He and his lovely wife Kathey were kind enough to take me in for the afternoon. I asked Ed if he might take me to the EMP building that I so enjoy photographing,he obliged. Thank you Ed!



This image is from my favorite side of the building and a new and different composition from the images I posted last year at this time.  Below is me totally oblivious and having a blast shooting the Fuji X-T1. An image Ed made and sent along.

    Uh…JB, where is your tripod. You are not setting a good example for others. You are a
    disappointment. 🙂

    That’s what I call making lemonade out of lemons. Nice job!

    Hi John! On the way home from the Palouse, I was stuck overnight in Denver due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Got to tell you – the Quality Inn in Aurora, CO was not nearly as photogenic as the EMP!

      Sorry you had trouble getting home. Good to see you again

    Similarity of motion, flow and patterns… What an awesome end to your trip… From the perfectly plowed patterns, colors and details within the rolling hills of the Palouse to Gehry’s architectural magical visions, design and rolling flow within the EMP building … the similarities are there. Great vision and capture JB! All the best!
