I’m departing from the topic of motorcycles once again to show the building stage of the Fred Hutchinson Communications Dept. newsroom in Seattle. The construction area has been loud all day. I’m happy it’s coming together. They say it might be ready Monday morning.

I’m using these pictures to test and learn a new camera. It’s a Canon 5D Mark III. I was born and raised on Nikon cameras. I still love the feel of a Nikon in my hands, but as Tom Petty says, “It’s time to move on, time to get going.”

It’s interesting how sometimes almost everything changes all at once.
