On the surface of it, taking pictures is all about finding a way to show other people how you see the world. Often times, I just want the picture to reflect what I really saw – the framing, the light, whatever.
Other times, seeing a scene through a new light reflects something new. These Through the Viewfinder pictures were all about a new way of seeing. I like any sort of new framing device.
As it so happens there are a bunch of those big metal telescopes (kinda like this one) across the street from my work, overlooking Elliott Bay. I was kinda curious if I could shoot through them. Turns out I can.

That’s Smith Tower, poking out over downtown. Want to see a few more? Hit the jump.
