TIAA #19: “People”

This is a tale about how TIA tripped into photographing people when the mission was to deliver cityscapes and urban landscapes exclusively.

Bans Off Our Bodies

View images from the Bans Off Our Bodies rally that was held in Seattle on May 14, 2022.

TIAA #6: “Get Here”

This is a tale about my worrisome penchant to worry about matters of which I have absolutely no control.

TIAA #5: “Acknowledge”

This is a tale about making a conscious effort to avoid stereotyping white people in the objective to eliminate systemic racism.

TIAA #2: “Wake Me Up”

This is a tale about the presentation of a dazzling image while being despondent and depressed in disguise.

Happy New Veer

2022 will be a year for TIA to change course, both personally and professionally.

A Pictorial Ode to those Glowing Sunset Embers of Late September

If you lived in Seattle on the evening of Friday, September 24, 2021, then you were probably a witness to one of the most mesmerizing sunsets we had this year. I wasn’t expecting it, so I was thoroughly caught off guard as I was cycling on Melbourne (that’s my bike’s name) north on Dexter Avenue…

Maritime Thoroughfare in the City

Please enjoy a very entertaining timelapse video of the Chittenden Locks (whose local moniker is the Ballard Locks), which is an essential part of the Lake Washington Ship Canal serving thousands of vessels throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. Constructed between 1911 and 1917, the Ballard Locks’ principal function enables access for boats and ships to…

Happy Mothers Day

TIA would like to extend fond wishes to all the mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, and sisters on this Mothers Day — today and always. To commemorate the occasion, please enjoy a few images of a real “mother goose” and her goslings at Lake Union Park in Seattle.

The Land in the Lullaby

Please enjoy a timelapse video that I executed on Sunday, April 25th, at the vantage located at 5th & Lynn Park in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. From this stellar viewpoint on a clear day, you can see five different neighborhoods of the city simultaneously — in addition to the colossal, jagged summits of…

Sunday Walks at Kerry Park

As my timelapse photography mission continues, this past weekend took me to the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, home of Kerry Park. If you are a resident of Seattle, Kerry Park truly needs no introduction. For previous visitors, chances are you have been to Kerry Park but did not know “Kerry” was the park’s name….

Summer in Springtime

Seattle has been experiencing some exceptional summertime weather even though we’re only a month into Spring. In my experience, Aprils in Seattle have often been rainy, wet, and relatively cold. Every few years, for a period of a few days, we find ourselves as the recipients of an anomaly in the “usual” weather patterns or…

Walk with Me under the Cherry Blossom Trees

Enjoy a compilation of landscape and timelapse photography featuring the enchanting cherry blossoms at the University of Washington in Seattle, a popular, annual attraction.

Caught in a Seattle Timelapse

In 2021, I have finally been able to engage with the objective I set for myself last year — developing and solidifying my skills in timelapse photography! As time-consuming as this engrossing venture is, timelapse photograpy is really a lot of fun. Similar to when I first delved into night photography over a decade ago,…

Sleepy Saturday Morning in Seattle

During the weekend of March 27th, I decided to revive my objectives for creating timelapse photography videos. It was a primary objective in 2020, but the pandemic struck the planet, and my objective was no longer a priority. A year later, I would like to resume my quest to add timelapse videos to my skillset…

A Newfound Zeal for the Seattle Great Wheel

The Seattle Great Wheel is the Ferris wheel at Pier 57 of Seattle’s waterfront. Constructed in 2012, the Great Wheel is one of the city’s youngest landmarks, but very recognizable alongside the growing number of skyscrapers that comprise Seattle’s downtown district. Although the Great Wheel, at 175 feet (53.3 m), is the tallest Ferris wheel…

“Snowmageddon Chronicles”: Part One

Contrary to popular preconceptions and misconceptions, snowfall is infrequent in Seattle, and blizzards are even rarer. That’s why the snowstorm Seattle received between February 12th and 13th is rather historic. The Emerald City was buried with nearly nine inches of snow, making February 13th the snowiest day in Seattle since January 1969. Since we typically…

TIA’s Adventures in “Photocycling” / Chapter Five (Blooper Wheel)

Even though I had promised to deliver this chapter before the conclusion of 2020, the holiday season turned out to be a lot busier than I had anticipated, in addition to the insanity of the national politics that continue to unravel each day ad infinitum. Alas, this fifth installment of “Adventures in Photocycling” features a…
