Things happening that are good for my ego ;)

Tomorrow (Tuesday, December 1, 2015) I will be featured in “Photography and the Art of Facilitation“. It’s a virtual, online event in which I get to talk about two of my favorite things – Agile and Photography – via one of my professional areas of expertise, facilitation.

On Sunday, December 6, 2015 I leave for Spant! in The Netherlands. On Tuesday, 12/8, I’ll be delivering a keynote at the Continuous Delivery Conference. My topic is “Continuous Delivery requires Continuous Communication“.

Coming up next year I’ll be at a number of conferences and conventions in both the Agile and Photography worlds. I’ll also be teaching more classes in Austin, including my well-received class on creating composites in Photoshop. Here’s a recent example.Amanda at the Prison

For those of my readers who are not uncomfortable with some nudity (“appropriate” nudity – no genitalia and no nipples showing on women), I’ve been busy this year with a passion project called the Austin Bodies Project. It’s primarily focused on celebrating fitness and the human body. It’s had an excellent response, including at the exhibit I had at the Gallery at the Ground Floor Theatre. If you are so inclined, can scroll back to August to see images of the exhibit.

In January, I’ll be volunteering at the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) annual convention called ImagingUSA in Atlanta. At the same time, I’ll get to learn from some top professionals, see the outstanding images that received merits* during this year (including mine), and hang out with some of my photographer friends.

In between all of this, I continue to work as an Agile Coach and Trainer, and as a photographer. I’ve got some weddings coming up, more work on the Austin Bodies Project, completing my application to be a PPA Certified Professional Photographer, and of course there are the holidays.

The Beauty of the Seattle Waterfront

While I don’t often post about my photography here, last week was noteworthy and deserving of a tiny bit of space here.

Seattle is renowned for being one of the grayest, drizzliest, dampest places in the country. And it’s probably deserved.

It’s also renowned for being one of the most beautiful, amazing places in the country.  Definitely deserved.

I spend some time along the Seattle Waterfront (Pier 70, Waterfront Seafood Grill, Olympic Sculpture Park) while having dinner and walking and talking with my friend Rebecca Parsons (CTO of ThoughtWorks). Having Rebecca as a friend is one of the best things that happened to me at ThoughtWorks.

The weather was perfect, as we strolled along the pathway along the waterfront. Temperature was in the low- to mid-seventies, the sky was beautiful, the sun was lowering, and the water was filled with sailboats. I’d argue that you don’t need to be an exceptional photographer to get great shots in a situation like that.

I put a number of pictures on Flickr from that place and time. I’m proud of them and wanted to share.

Here’s an example. Go to Flickr to see more.

Seattle Sunset (sigh)
