The Seattle downtown area before the full sunrise., around 6:30 pm. This view came from Pier 66, where I was also taking shots of the Harvest Moon (see the previous post).

I loved every second of this moment.

Do Androids Dream of Living Computers?

img_7794

I’m much excited for the new Blade Runner 2049 movie coming out soon, but also a bit worried it may not live up to the grandeur of the original, a cinematography and storytelling work of art.

With that in mind, I attended the “Do Androids Dream of Living Computers?” event at the awesome Living Computers: Museum + Labs in the SoDo area of Seattle, last weekend. the event was an homage to the classic 1984 Blade Runner classic movie with its influence on tech, AI, and cyberpunk culture. With that were live performances, Voight-Kampff tests, cosplay, origami foldings, cosplay, AI developments examples, and much more. I had a good time and took a few pics…

 

Also, big thanks to the Living Computers: Museum + Labs for putting this on. The entire place is super great, with many preserved computer machines and new innovations on display. Much of which I plan to focus on with another write-up someday with another visit to the awesome museum. Visit www.livingcomputers.org for more information.

Today was nice, especially the evening.

I took the above picture on a spur of the moment while working out some plans and enjoying the continuous breath of fresh air. Location is Myrtle Edwards Park, with West Seattle in the distance.

Picture of Today 9/21/2017, Goodbye Summer

Today is the last day of Summer 2017 for the Northern Hemisphere. I hope you took some great looks at the grown green, especially if you’re in the Pacific Northwest, for it’s all coming down soon. Along with it, the warm weather and brighter days.

Yet, I think there will be as much to appreciate in the coming Fall. Wait and see…

Late Night Fuzzyness

A personal favorite shot above, showing my mood hours later after first arriving in San Diego two weeks ago.

The location, the end branch of the long Municipal Pier in Ocean Beach. It's a lovely place, no matter the picture. Just enjoy it, in any mood.

More shots to come, later and clearer.

The Spring Behind Us…

Photo Jun 09, 6 19 27 PM

I barely noticed the Spring has left.

I think for much of the season, at least for much of the Pacific Northwest, has left brought us cold and rainy weather, full of gloom with lessened sunshine. Such was especially towards the end.

Yet. there were moments. Many of which I either slept through or worked tirelessly on by. Such were the simple walks, enjoying the moments that can not be specialized through any specialized event or happening.

Here are pics of the recent days, of which took place in between the errands and mundane activities of errand-doing and sky-gazing….

My hangout these days in Freeway Park, by the convenience of my work walking commute. It’s my place to read comic books and respond to texts.

A Day of Scattered Blossoms.

Photo Apr 08, 7 24 05 AM

The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.

Pictures taken at Freeway Park, behind the Convention Center in Downtown Seattle. The scattered blossoms were from the previous days of heavy wind and rainfall.
