more seattle pics

shot some Seattle skyline pics earlier this week -- they precipitated a call from the owners of three prominent seattle skyscrapers asking me to come over again and shoot some pics specifically for their properties. The price was right so I jumped on it -- as a bonus, they let me shoot the sunset from 55 stories above street level.

    That first photo is so cool it almost doesn't even look real. Seattle has a very nice skyline.

    How do I know it is just not the person behind the lens? Cut Butner some slack. He's obviously not in your league.

    I think Butner photoshopped the clouds and the buildings in there. That picture was taken just outside of Mandan, North Dakota.
  • 20,000 likes on Facebook. A local news station put that first pic on their Facebook page. Congrats.

    yeah, and the NBC affiliate in Seattle has plans to use another one of them sometime today.

    it's pretty interesting to be on this end of it -- when 20,000 people like your photo in less than 18 hours, it's not just friends and family. It's been shared about 5,000 times and even that tiny bit of notoriety brings all sorts of things out of the woodwork -- so far I've had 3 requests for people who want to tag along next time I go on a rooftop, 2 people wanting to work for me promoting my photos, and a couple of people crediting me with similar photos that I didn't take (including one that was taken from a chopper and shows the building I was standing on).

    That is so cool.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    These are cool Scott. Can I come up on the roof with you too? I want to bring someone with me, don't worry though there wont be as many of us coming down the stairs.
