Every once in a while you capture a moment that’s just too good to be true. While you’re shooting it, you’re both (a) really excited, and (b) feelin’ kinda corny, because the photos look almost posed. That’s how I felt when I stumbled upon these shots today.
By lucky chance, I was able to get tickets for Yo-Yo Ma’s performance with the Seattle Symphony this weekend. (Thanks Seema for the eagle eye!) I’ve seen Yo-Yo Ma once before – as a part of his Silk Road Ensemble. And while it was great, I left really wanting to see him playing classical music (and solo-ing!). I’m so excited! ** If you’re a huge (dork) West Wing Fan, like me, you might have gotten the Donna reference in the blog title. 🙂
After seeing my friends Monica & Brian with their Lensbaby, I decided I wanted to play too. The Lensbaby is this “glass-free” lens – it’s literally a spring with an aperture hole that you bend the to focus its “sweet spot” where you want. The rest of the photo has a gradually increasing blur. Here’s a photo I took with my Lensbaby while on the ferry to Bainbridge.
