How I Photographed The Music Museum

Today’s post by Mark Toal

LX100 EMP Seattle In previous posts, Ive written about the importance of why you should always need to carry a camera with you to the point where I think we don’t ever have to use the phrase again. So now that you do carry a camera with you everywhere, what the heck do you shoot with it?

On the morning that I made this photograph I was on a business trip and staying at a hotel in Seattle. I woke up early and just felt like staying in my room drinking coffee until my 10 AM appointment. Instead I decided to walk to the nearest Starbucks at the Seattle Center where the Space Needle and EMP Music Museum are located.

Since it’s small and lightweight, I grabbed my Panasonic Lumix LX100 camera. The EMP Museum was designed by Frank Gehry and is amazing architecture.

Millions of photos have been made of the building so it’s difficult to get something original. I walked two blocks for coffee and took a photo that I love.
