The Olympic Sculpture Park: now even less exciting

By Sparky | May 28, 2007

This morning brought Brien and myself to the B&O for a nice Monday breakfast, and then the worlds quickest Costco experience (it failed to occur to either of us that they might be closed for Memorial Day) prior to heading home.

Later in the afternoon Rob and I went to the new Olympic Sculpture Park on the Seattle waterfront today to take photos of the sculptures. Unfortunately the park was not nearly as cool as we had hoped, but we did manage to find a few cool shots. The park itself is a nice adaptation of its prior incarnation of Myrtle Edwards park, but after the Seattle Art Museum hyped it up so much it was a but disappointing. None of the sculptures really jumped out at me and the collection was rather sparse.

The above shot was my favorite and was taken with a Lensbaby 3G. I waited around for quite a while waiting for nobody to be in the shot (execpt the people at the ‘point’ which I like) and eventually realized that it simple was not going to happen. Luckily I was able to lock it in with my tripod and take 4 photos to use as static background plates to mask out all the $%@# people.

I’m really going to be sad to see the Memorial Day weekend go. I’ve had fun relaxing and taking photos over the last couple of days and I feel much better for it. Now with my batteries recharged tackling work in the next few weeks should be much easier.
