Belltown, Seattle, WA
When I first started this project, I knew I would want to revisit some of my favorites scenes I shot digitally. Last week, I went back to Belltown, Seattle where I made a picture of the railroad tracks just south of Bell Street on Western Ave. The thing that drew me to it the first time (about six months ago) was the contrast between the human-made structures on one side of the “tracks” juxtapose the trees on the other. Not only was it interesting for composition, but I feel it is a reflection of much of society. This time I made one exposure facing north and one exposure facing south. I actually caught the train coming towards me while I was facing south (the bright light in the center of the frame). Hey, anything to get the shot, right?
