Local photographer Joseph “Joe” Tobiason recently completed a stunning and comprehensive time-lapse video of Seattle’s neighborhoods. Day turns to night and back to day over Queen Anne, Ballard, Phinney Ridge, Green Lake– all around the town. Benefiting from early morning hours, Mr. Tobiason was easily able to gain ideal positioning for shooting. “In spite of the cold and lack of sleep, it was awesome to see people taking stills have to jockey around me for position,” he joked.
Our own Kerry Park, here in Queen Anne, was a favorite place to shoot. “Many cities have a hill that looks over downtown, but so few really sit right on top of the landmark,” Mr. Tobiason observed. “It is nice because it’s a place that is really safe and that that I never have to worry about being hassled because there are so many others doing similar things.” Mr. Tobiason would be interested in hearing from our readers if they are aware of other locations around the town that offer clear landmark views.
The music was composed specially for the video by Andrew Knapp, a 2008 graduate of Whitworth University in Jazz performance.
