For more information, here’s the show flyer. See you on the 15th!
Update: If you go, you’ll find five of my prints on the second floor, above the reception desk (on the left side of the site photo below). One more print is on the first floor in the lobby; turn right at reception.
I’m honored and pleased that two of my panoramic photographs have been selected for the City Panorama 2016 public arts program. One of the images is a panorama of a sunset that includes The Needles and Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon; and the other is of Dusty Lake in eastern Washington state.
City Panorama is an annual project that displays inspirational panoramic format art on Metro bus shelters throughout Seattle and King County. The art will appear on 8-foot-wide wood panels, and may be displayed for up to ten years. The process of printing, mounting, and siting all of the selected works takes several months.
I shot the Dusty Lake photo from a high point on a ridge above the lake. Dusty Lake sits in a depression gouged out by Ice Age floods, about 200 feet below the top of the ridge. To get a sense of the field of view for this image, the lake is over half a mile long, and the far end of the ridge in the distance on the right is about a mile and a half away.
Both of my images are multiple-frame panoramas photographed in camera raw format, then merged and processed in Adobe Lightroom, with some additional edits in Adobe Photoshop as needed.
Thank you to Photographic Center Northwest, King County Metro, and Youth in Focus as well as the panel of jurors from those organizations who selected the images. Thanks also to 4Culture who fund the program through a grant.

Update: Haystack Rock panorama installed
I received word that the Haystack Rock sunset panorama was installed at Stop #9560, a northbound bus stop at Eastlake Avenue East and Harvard Avenue East in Seattle. You can see the work installed on site in the photos below, as well as a map of the location.
Here‘s a map of the location, it’s under the Interstate 5 bridge:
The artists have no input as to where the photographs are installed, so I was pleased that Metro installed my work at a bus stop that I actually used back in high school to get home.
I’m still waiting to find out where Metro installs the Dusty Lake photo. Installation of the long list of City Panorama works may take until late spring 2017.
Event: November 13, 2015 in Seattle
I’m showing a set of photographs from my from my series about Il Palio di Siena, including two large images I haven’t printed before. Il Palio is the centuries-old traditional horse race held twice each summer in Siena, Italy. Attending Il Palio was fascinating to me not because of horse racing specifically, but because of the colorful cultural and historical traditions that drive it.
I ate a lot of gelato while attending Il Palio, so I am grateful to Nutty Squirrel Gelato for hosting my Italian photographs in an appropriate venue. In addition to the delicious treats available at Nutty Squirrel, there will be Art Walk-only art discounts and affordable gifts. I will also have additional prints and images that are not already on the walls. Hope to see you there!
If you can’t make it to the event, the photographs are on display throughout November 2015. You can also visit my Palio di Siena project website to see an extended photo essay and video of the works that I continue to create from this ongoing project.
Also, by a complete coincidence, SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) is screening a documentary about Il Palio on November 14, 2015, the day after this event, as part of their Cinema Italian Style series. I haven’t seen it, but the trailer looks promising. For more information and a preview, see: Palio
