You Spin Me Round Like a Record…

…Right round like a record, baby
Right round round round…
― vocalist Pete Burns of the 80s British band Dead or Alive

The picture is of the Seattle Great Wheel upon Pier 57 waterfront. I shoot while waiting in the wind on a bench for some minutes to mean something. I go for a 15-second shutter speed, low ISO setting exposure. I like the result.

Picture of Today 12/6/15, Spinning Blue

Just a long exposure shot of the Great Seattle Wheel by the waterfront, in the rain.

it was a pretty awesome blue color, which looked somehow bluer in the rain I think. I think it was also blue (with some green) because of the Seahawks football game today. I say it’s their game not because I happen to live in Seattle, but for them beating the Vikings 38-7 and advancing as a “wild card” for the upcoming playoffs. Go Hawks!

Anyway, rain is coming down pretty hard. Gotta go home, and rest for the busy work week. I leave with the a bonus still shot of that ferris wheel at full stop…

Ferris Wheelin on the Seattle Waterfront..

2015-05-09 16.32.15

From the weekend before, as the big thrill of that moment should have been documented much sooner..

The view here, on the first rotation part my 20-30 minute ride on the Seattle Great Wheel. Shot taken from my cellphone. Below are more low-res shots, where I share the heightened sense of moving on a giant crazy contraption.. I had a friend with me, who kind of freaked out in the beginning. I however, love scary heights and felt an excitement rush. Also, I enjoyed these new views of my familiar surroundings. This was also my first time ever on a large Ferris wheel, of many I will do again in my future. Hooray, for new simple joys in life.
