2017-10-29  ENTRY TO SOMETHING BIG

What is looking a bit plain form the distance, is the entry to an unforgettable experience. You will see one of the biggest halls in the world, a Boeing factory building. Taking photos inside is forbidden. I can tell you seeing one dozen of airplanes like Boeing 747 or Boeing 787 Dreamliner built in one hall shows you a new dimension of industrial work.  😎

2017-10-21  SEATTLE MUSEUM OF ROCK

I was very excited, entering the Museum of Rock. And it fulfilled my expectations. Colossal video walls with rock bands filmed playing live concerts. Exhibition rooms with rock memorabilia, unknown anecdotes, unseen photos and audio sketches, cool cool. 😎  This whole thing was sponsored by Paul Allen, one of the Microsoft founders, a good investment for the music fans of the world.

2017-10-17  SEATTLE, GARDEN OF GLASS INDOOR

This magnificent exhibition started indoor, with dark rooms and the illuminated plants, meadows, flowers, shrubs, all made of colored glass. I had only my iPhone with me, with just 20% battery power left. First I discovered all the rooms and the outdoor area to calculate how to proceed with taking the photos before my phone gives up. In the end, I got three dozens shot with all areas covered.  🙂

2017-07-09  DECISION FOR GARDEN OF GLASS

I had one half-day spare time in Seattle before my flight back to Europe. There were three exhibitions where I could enter, but time left only for one

  • Museum of Rock (I had visited it last year already)
  • Science Fiction Exhibition
  • Garden of Glass

Then the sculptures at the entrance of “Garden of Glass” impressed me and I entered. Fascinating, the gardens near the Space Needle were decorated and extended with glass plants, it was a mixture of real garden and glass.

Some plants reminded me of the planets in the television series “Star Trek”  🙂

2017-07-05  SEATTLE FROM THE DUCK BOAT

After entering the sea in the “Ride the Ducks” amphibious vehicle, you get a nice, different view of Seattle. I was lucky, sitting directly at the window to take shots without much hindering. It was a fun tour; the tour guide was singing and making jokes, we were getting around the city and water canals and having fun shooting photos.

2017-04-17  BRIDGE IN SEATTLE ON A RAINY DAY

With the tourist attraction “Ride the Ducks” you are in an amphibious vehicle which can drive on the streets and also can ride the water. It’s great fun, and during the sea tour, I could get this photo of a bridge in Seattle. The whole day was gloomy, but I like the combination of gray clouds with industrial bridges.

2017-03-21 YELLOW GLASS SCULPTURE IN SEATTLE

This sculpture reminds me of an alien in a science fiction movie. It looks like it was small in size and grew bigger and bigger until it became unstoppable  🙂  Clearly it was a piece of art made of glass and brought a fresh photo motive. This Garden of Glass was worth the visit, never seen anything like this before.

2017-02-24 INSIDE THE EXHIBITION GARDEN OF GLASS IN SEATTLE

It was about running the gauntlet with entering this exhibition. The camera in the hotel, iPhone with only 20% battery left, 4 hours before flight departure and the airline ticket on the iPhone in passbook. So I tried to reconcile all things starting with shooting the exhibition but save enough battery for my airline ticket.  🙂 then taking my luggage form the hotel, meeting my colleagues and taking Uber to the airport…

2017-02-20 BACKSTREETS OF SEATTLE

Sometimes I take photos of less attractive buildings, like here of the backstreets in Seattle. For me, industry buildings, loading docks, iron fire ladders and delivery vehicles have a unique flare. And for many workers, it’s daily routine to get there and start the day …

2016-12-20 ENTRY TO GARDEN OF GLASS

With only my IPhone and 20% battery left I entered this great exhibition where I immediately knew, that I had to try my best to cover those great exhibits with the (limited) equipment I had. Even in low light, the IPhone did a good job and I could go home with a bunch of great photos. 🙂 Then I was in a hurry, because 4 hours later was my flight from Seattle to London.
