Christopher - Class of 2018! Part 1: MoPOP Seattle

February 21, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I. had. so. much. fun!!  with Christopher :)  And Alyssa, and Joy, and Sasha, and Zoe.  So much fun it will take 2 blog posts :)  Click here for Part 2.  I love texture in photos.  And "light is everything" (so true) - so light reflecting off the smooth brass of Christopher's collection of music-makers, along with dull gleams off the weathered studded metal background, and rough cement & low ethereal clouds & Christopher's hair and this was a fun start for me!

One-of-a-kind. You don't BUY these shoes, you DESIGN these shoes, yo. 

Christopher has been to MoPOP before, and since Alyssa and I are not... the best with maps... we made him our tour guide :)  We stopped every time I saw something crazy fun for photos ;) Here are a few:

Our Photography Assistant on this day was Alyssa!!  Alyssa is a friend, babysitter, former co-Sunday-School-teacher, and photography-model from my church, Pine Lake Covenant Church!  So it turns out that the three of us toured MoPOP during a celebration of 50 years of Star Trek :)

And we were there at the verrrry end of the day, nearly had the place to ourselves.  So when we saw the opportunity, we went for it.  

#BEAMMEUP Scotty :)

Okay, maybe Christopher hadn't been surprised, I think he was expecting a video game - so there was a lot of boom-blast-shoot-'em-up for a minute and then silence.... and my favorite Christopher quote of the day,

"Well... that happened."

 

Moving on!

Near Data's-Head-in-the-Floor, there was this red orange light that I actually really love, and thus some of my favorite shots of Christopher :)
