MSE: Holiday Lights Westlake Center

Hello Hello,

Break out your tripods and shutter release cables and let's do some night photography!

In a growing traditional, let's meetup and capture the spirit of the holidays, Seattle Style. Check out images from the 2012 event here: Westlake 2012

We will meet at Westlake Park, on the corner of 4th and Pine, in front of the fountain where the carousel resides. (Look for the tripods)

We will shoot for probably an hour or so (it gets chilly, fast that time of year).

    A little damp, but nothing out of the ordinary. My first time with Seattle Flickrites, and I enjoyed the company. Unfortunately, I ended up leaving earlier than expected due to a long day and starting to be in pain.

    Where did everybody go? I walked around the corner to shoot the model trains, and when I got back, nobody was around. Oh well, I will catch the post click drinks some other time.

    Stuck in traffic. Probably 20min late. Are u gonna regroup later somewhere?

    December 12, 2013

    • Kate

      Hey Day, sorry about traffic. Right now there aren't plans for a "happy hour" kinda thing. But if you can make it. It's really pretty.

      December 12, 2013

    • Day K.

      I left my house at 4:30pm and still didn't make it in time...

    Damn!!! I got an email from another photo group this afternoon postponing their walk tonight due to rain, and thought it was this one!!! What a bummer, I was all prepped too...

      I thought you were early for a second, but I had the times wrong.

      December 12, 2013

  • Tracie

    Uh oh! Somebody told me this started at 6:30... I guess I will be late, especially with this traffic I'm seeing.

    But the wet streets has placed some great specular high on the street

    December 12, 2013

  • Lynn D.

    I have decided not to brave the rain.

    December 12, 2013

  • Greg S.

    Sorry,

    I am a real estate agent, I have a home that is supposed to close this evening but I am having difficulties that I have to take care of.

    December 12, 2013

  • Day K.

    It's pouring where I am at the moment. How about downtown?

    December 12, 2013

  • Adrian N

    Got a nasty cold. Have to cancel. :(

    December 12, 2013

    • Kate

    I'll be in the neighborhood for another activity, depending on time, I may stop by.

    Kate, I'm recovering from back surgery, and have a cane and so forth for now. Is there any parking near to Westlake Park? I don't want to be hobbling all over Seattle, and I don't really get over there that often.

    • Brian X.

      Going out in the rain can be a bit of trouble as you have to juggle an umbrella, or put rain protection on the camera, etc., but before you write off the evening if it is raining, let me tell you that wet pavement reflects lights and colors 100x better than dry pavement... ;) Also, the rain keeps the crowds away so you have better shots.

      December 9, 2013

    • Gary C.

      Brian, I'm also recuperating from surgery, and I'm kind of worried about being wet and cold, as well as slippery, etc. Plus, I plan on bringing two cameras as well as my tripod, and probably a couple of flashes, too.

    Wear your Mittens, Kittens! :)

      Ok Kate. As long as you treat us to pie

      December 9, 2013

  • Al G.

    This is going to be a crowded one, Seattle Photography Club is starting @ 5 :)

    December 5, 2013

    • Kate

      yep, just saw that.

  • Gary C.

    I would like to attend, but because this is on a Thursday, and I live in Kitsap County, getting there means taking off early from work and catching the ferry over. Still, depending on the circumstances, I've wanted to meet up with some other Seattle based Flickr users, and this seems like a good opportunity to do that.

    November 30, 2013

    • Kate

      hi Gary, hope you can make it! Look forward to meeting you. :)

      December 3, 2013

  • Eric R.

    I'm going to bring an IceLight to test out.

      I so *didn't* need to see one of those in real life action! But I am sure I will be strong and not pick one up the next morning. Yes, that's the plan :-P

    I might be bringing some friends with me, I'd have to ask them.

    November 24, 2013

    Looking forward to it. Maybe bring the Instax.
