Week 7 | 52 Rolls in 52 Weeks

Pioneer Square, Seattle

Hey, you've been asking for color.

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted, but it's not because I haven't been making photographs. The local photography store was out of the developer I use to process black and white film and two weeks of back-to-back travel kept me out of the labs and away from my scanner.

I love walking. I try to schedule enough time between meetings and work so that I have time to walk from one place to the next. When I do this, I notice things (like the smell of newly blossoming flowers, the sound of the wind rustling the litter on the ground, and the smells of somebody cooking) that I wouldn't if I were whizzing by them in a car or bus. I spend much of my time in and around Pioneer Square where I'm always captivated by the street art. Early Saturday morning a few weeks ago, I set out to photograph some of my personal favorites.

Equipment Used:

  • Camera: Mamiya AFD II
  • Lens: Mamiya AF 90mm f/2.8
  • Film: Kodak Ektar 100


It seems like people either love or hate this mural. I'm one of those who loves it. I pass by this every time I head to or from the light rail.

For some reason, this mural reminds me of walking around the streets of Dallas and San Antonio. Shout out to my friends back in TX. I miss you.

This is one of my favorites in Pioneer Square. It kind of reminds me of the "diversity shot" every organization has in their collateral, but the expressions in this work create something more real.
