Last week we, THE FAMILY, visited one of the largest car collections in the North West (located just right next to the Tacoma Dome), LeMay’s America’s Car Museum. Its huge territory is covered by the cars one may have never seen in his or her life. When we got our admission tickets, the lady said: Have fun in our four-story building! Here I am thinking we will walk around for maybe an hour maximum only because I took camera with me :). But we ended up spending there four full hours walking around and exploring the most exquisite automobiles from the beginning of the 20th century until now. I think the oldest car was from 1903 and it was gorgeous motorized carriage; the newest was this sleek mind-blowing body of 2011.
I loved spending time around art that I will never be part of making, but I am adoring the people who started the car industry. Yes, I think technology and art really go hand in hand together, and I wouldn’t be who I am to day, the artist, the photographer if it wasn’t for my love for technology and art. So I chose to be a photographer and graphic designer – these two is the perfect combination of art and technology, which I am passionate about.
During our walk around the museum I took A LOT of photos and I could’ve taken more. I didn’t photographed every car although all of them were beautiful things. These are just highlights for you to enjoy and make you want to go there and take a look at them yourself! 🙂
Because of some event taking place that weekend, some cars from the top floor were moved outside:
This is the first time I ordered the 11×14 Folio box from Finao. I am impressed to say the least. The box is sturdy and very high quality for keeping the gorgeous photos my client ordered. There are few options for the cover, but I went with the simplest one and the classy one. The folio box is a beautiful keepsake. The mats aren’t included and when you buy them separately from Folio box there is a minimum of 25. The ones I ordered are white with 7×10 cut out to fit the photos.
I know there are cheaper versions than the Finao/Seldex Folio box, but I think this one is the best in both quality and look. So I decided to present my art work in the best possible way. Take a look:
About three weeks ago, this beautiful lady came into my in-home studio. Meet Olga. She is a wife and a mother to a cutest little man. Little over a year ago they’ve immigrated from Kazakhstan, where they were highly persecuted by Muslim nationalists for their religious and moral views. Since that time, they’ve adapted to their new home, America, found new friends and church. There is no better place than the place where you feel safe and welcomed, where you’re not judged for your views and where you have freedom to express yourself as you wish.
I loved photographing Olga simply because she is crazy gorgeous. Great hair & make-up and friendly atmosphere is all you need to feel beautiful. For me, good lighting is essential, so my clients will fall in love with the results.(more…)
We are enjoying the sunshine in Greater Seattle! Do you? 🙂 As a family, we love to explore new places and walk trails. This one, actually, isn’t new place to us, but we still love it just because it’s not far away from where we live. We just wanted to open the “trail walk” season at Meadowdale Park, Edmonds. Our oldest kids couldn’t come with us, but the three of us (Paul, Sam and I) had fun!
The weather!!! It’s beautiful: warm enough not to wear the annoying jackets! and cool enough to walk (read exercise.) The trail path lays in between thick and breathtaking woods. Since I took the camera with me, the walk took us longer.. but we weren’t in a hurry. We were enjoying the walk and talked all the way down to the Puget sound.
I took so many photos, but as always sharing only the best ones:
Couple of weeks ago I showed Tatiana’s summer senior session. This one we created January 2013, so it’s pretty new even though I am posting it kind of late. I edited them long time ago, but haven’t had a chance to post it (at least it wasn’t that late as the summer one 🙂 )
Those of you from Seattle, probably remember how foggy this winter was. I don’t remember having so much fog any of the previous years. There wasn’t much snow (maybe couple of days), but FOG fell on hour Seattle’s land almost every day for a month or more! That was Fairytaleish… We chose to go somewhere (in the middle of nowhere) in Arlington to find some snow since it melted at our place the day before. We found it and more! The road which we took kept changing from snow, to fog, to clear sky and sun… Don’t tell me you don’t see the mystery in this! I could not believe it myself, but it is true. Here are some of the photos I took of gorgeous Tatiana. Enjoy!
