Hawkitecture with the Sony a6000–Seattle Skies Are Lit With Blue & Green

f/4.5 @ 70 mm, 1/20, ISO 3200, No Flash

Make no mistake, the 12th man’s presence can be felt anywhere in Seattle right now

Seattle is lit with blue and green colors everywhere this week in what is being referred to as “Hawkitecture” as it prepares for its second straight Super Bowl. Even if you aren’t a Seahawks fan, I thought some of you would appreciate this different view of Seattle that I captured while reviewing the Sony a6000.

Entering the land of the 12th Man

All of the shots featured are unedited a6000 shots that were taken using this tripod setup except where the captures mention “handheld”. In the case of the handheld shots the tripod was still used, but against my chest instead of on a fixed surface (as described in the article).

My apologies to the Patriots fans and Seahawks haters out there who are rooting against my home team. Despite your disdain for my team, hopefully you can appreciate the photos and the enthusiasm of the “12th Man” coming together to support their team.

I'm rooting for the Seahawks! I'm a die hard (louder than the Seahawks fans) Chiefs fan, but I like Seattle. Great pics, I'd love to visit Seattle some day!
