The Discovery Park Lighthouse

I finally was able to get a photo of the Discovery Park lighthouse in Seattle, Washington.  The lighthouse has been under renovation the past couple of the tarps and scaffolding were removed recently, and this is what I captured.  I had the added benefit of showing up at low tide, so getting reflections in the tide pools was wonderful!  Make sure you click on the photo for a larger image.

Cadillacs all in a row...

I took this wide angle shot at the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington.  The following is from the Museum Website:

Harold and Nancy LeMay amassed the largest privately owned collection of automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, other vehicles and related memorabilia in the world.

At its peak, the LeMay Collection numbered in excess of 3,000 vehicles and thousands of artifacts and was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest privately owned collection in the world; impressive if accomplished by a King, but jaw dropping, awesome when accomplished by a local businessman from Tacoma, Washington.

In 1998, Harold and Nancy LeMay formed the 501c3 charitable organization, The Harold E. LeMay Museum, and committed themselves to donating the vast LeMay Collection to the Museum for the benefit of the public. The LeMay Museum was chartered to secure, preserve and interpret the valuable LeMay Collection, along with additional vehicles and artifacts that it may acquire, in order to explore the broad themes of American mobility and lifestyle in an instructive and entertaining manner.

The magnitude of the LeMay Collection, and its power to relate the story of the American experience with the automobile, demands a new paradigm in transportation museums.  The museum will be an inviting place, eliciting memories and stories from those who visit. It will provide a venue to explore history, design, technology and restoration. In short, the museum will create “America's Auto Experience” and become a world-class tourist destination in its own right.

The Paddock at Emerald Downs

A paddock is an enclosure in which horses scheduled to compete in a contest are saddled prior to racing.  This is an HDR photo of the paddock at the Emerald Downs race track in Auburn, Washington.  I just love all the lines and texture that the HDR technique brought out in the capture.  Make sure you click on the image for a larger view.

Orting Barn and House

I captured these shots last weekend while looking for old barns in the small town of Orting, Washington. I found it interesting that the old house, which was on the same property as the barn, had peeling paint, but also a new satellite dish on the side of the house :) I'm not sure if the barn will be around much longer!

Enjoy the views...and be sure to click on the photos for a larger image!

Haystack Rock and the Needles

Located near Cannon Beach on the North coast of Oregon, Haystack Rock is a unique monolith that attracts wildlife and tourists alike. Towering 235 feet over the beach, the Rock is home to nesting seabirds in the summer and marine invertebrates all year long.  It is one of the largest "sea stacks" on America's Pacific coast, and is the third largest monolith in the world. The smaller sea stacks next to it are called the "needles".

I'm using a new technique to produce some of my black and whites...hope you like it!

Northwest Railway Museum - Retired!

This old passenger car is located at the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, Washington. 

The Northwest Railway Museum Collection contains representative examples of Northwest railway history including steam and diesel locomotives, freight cars, passenger cars, maintenance of way equipment (used to maintain the right of way), a five mile segment of historic railroad, a nineteenth century train station and thousands of publications. All of these "artifacts" offer some insight into the significance railroads played in the development of the Northwest.
