Making pictures with an old lens, The rise of Amazon.com

Amazon.com building

Camera: Fujifilm X-Pro1, Lens: Fujinon Aspherical 18mm, ISO: 1000, Shutter speed: 1/125th of a second, Aperture: 7.1, White balance: cloudy

This is another in a series of many new Amazon.com buildings that have sprung up in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. The area has taken on an urban campus feel some people like and others hate. I drift back and forth between these two camps. It’s nice to see my neighborhood doing well economically, but the tearing down of old buildings and replacing them with gleaming glass, metal and tile sheathed buildings is causing a sort of economic filtering that’s pushing out old businesses and long time residents. It makes me wonder if Seattle’s development is eroding the quirkiness we all use to find so charming.
