Saturday Snapshot: Puget Sound Sunset

Puget Sound Sunset by CRash

Taken yesterday, when the weather was sunny, clear, and gorgeous.  The weather today was pretty wonderful, too.  These are the days when I take my camera and head out for exploratory walkabouts.

Saturday Snapshot: Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Out of all of the dorms/apartments I’ve lived in, this one has the best view.  Here’s a zoomed-in shot of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, taken from my new balcony.

Friday Evening at Titlow Park

It was a gorgeous clear day, so I biked down to Titlow Park to watch the sun set over Puget Sound.  I also took my iPad along, and did a quick speedpaint of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge at sunset.  It took somewhere around 30-45 minutes, and was tricky since the light kept changing as the sun moved closer to the horizon.

Once again, the uphill bike ride home was killer.  The park is great incentive, though – near enough and pretty enough to make it worth the exercise on the return trip.  Might this become a self-imposed workout routine?  Only if there are more clear, sunny days like this one!

 

Saturday Snapshot: Heron

Here is the heron from my trip to Titlow Lagoon.  It was very people-shy, flying to a different part of the pond whenever a jogger or a bicyclist (like me) passed nearby on the trail.

Saturday Snapshot: November Sky

Photo of clouds taken on Black Friday, near sunset. It was windy, so they were moving all over the place.  I like the different layers of color.

Sunday Speedpaint: Titanic

On the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, I thought it would be fitting to do a speedpaint of the ship itself.  This took about a half hour to paint in Adobe Photoshop, referenced from this movie screenshot (I altered the coloring for my reference).

Here is a video of the painting process, sped up dramatically:
