Two Foss pilot ships wait for a container ship to enter Elliott Bay as the sun sets above the Olympic mountains.

Sunset and Twilight on the Waterfront

Living so close to the waterfront allows me to run down when the weather is great and see what I can capture. The Bell Harbor International Conference Center has a great upper deck with amazing views of Elliott Bay. Then its a short walk to Pier 62/63 for a great night view of the city and […] Read more…

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

We woke up to a sunny Seattle Saturday and were like, “What can we do in the sun?” We have been wanting to check out the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. We headed out and watched the clouds roll in as we headed down to Tacoma. Oh well, at least it wasn’t raining. The zoo […] Read more…

Farm and Mountains

On the way back home from the Skagit Eagle Festival I spotted this scene and had to shoot it. The red barn and green field was a nice contrast with the low clouds and icy snowy mountains that looked almost black and white. Photo and story by Bobby Arispe. Read more…

Skagit River Bald Eagles

We took a day trip north to the Skagit River area in the Northern Cascades. It was the time of the year when Bald Eagles come down from Alaska. The local community of Concrete hosts the Eagle Festival and the US Fish and Wildlife Department sets up viewing stations along the river. It was very chilly and there was […] Read more…

Gemenid Meteor Shower

Our friends Andy and Christina invited us out for a little meteor shower gazing. We drove out to Snoqualmie Point Park to get out of the lights of the city. We saw lots of meteors that night and it was so cold. I was shooting with a 24mm lens at f/4 and 30 sec. Lots […] Read more…

What’s in my bag…

I had missed the Rally America event in Oregon so I was excited to learn that the Red Bull Global Rally Cross series was coming to Snoqualmie at the DirtFish Rally School. I headed out for the final day […] Read more…

Fleet Week 2014

As a part of SeaFair here in Seattle, we had an US Navy ship parade on the Seattle Waterfront. This was a photo opportunity I didn’t want to miss, so I cut out of work early and hustled down to the waterfront to see these procession. The next day we got to tour the USS […] Read more…

Photos with Louie

Photographer buddy, Louie Preciado was back in Seattle, so of course we had to meet up for some fish and chips to talk cameras and go shoot pics. Louie was shooting his new tool, a vintage Hasselblad. There was something amazing about the sound of that shutter. We needed a new shot of Seattle, so […] Read more…
