on the waterfront


The light source was late evening low sunlight reflected off a skyscraper's windows. The quality of the light was a bigger draw than the subject matter, a group of kids skateboarding and shooting stills and videos of their acrobatics off the stonework in front of the New Federal Bulding on Second Ave in Seattle. I was shooting from across the street, under an entryway in the shadows. After about fifty exposures the kids discovered me so I move on down to Alaskan Way across the foot bridge to the Ferry Terminal.
