View from the Pike Place Market

Yesterday, on a Chamber of Commerce weather day, we took our two grandkids to the Pike Place Market to have lunch and to check out the refurbed section of the Market. We traveled by bus from West Seattle; I have to insert that I think comparing NYC Subways and Seattle Metro buses is likely close to happening).

Highlights of the images ( which are all  shot on my iPhone, with the aid of a detachable lens  are: The Wheel, Mt. Rainier, Elliott Bay, Alki Point in West Seattle and the soon-to-become extinct Viaduct/SR99.

One of the highlights of the outing was viewing and contributing to the new Gum Wall!

Anyway, the foray into downtown Seattle for a few of hours was about all my broken down body could endure. The current Seattle agency in charge of tourism promotion of the city seemed to be doing a bang up job as the Market was jam packed, even for a Tuesday!

Car Deck

View of the car deck and deck hand on a Washington State Ferry. The sun was just rising at the time of this shooting. This particular run was fairly quiet with few vehicles.

On the Staten Island Side

Looking back at Brooklyn from the ferry docked on Staten Island. Also a ferry docked a couple of piers down from the main ferry dock.

From the Staten Island Ferry

Looking back at lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge from the Staten Island Ferry. There was quite a crowd of people  standing on the aft end of the ferry taking pictures. I thought I had a good spot to shoot from, but was soon overrun by camera-clutching tourists pushing me around as everyone jockeyed around for that ‘perfect spot’. A bit crazy, but riding the ferry is a good way to see lower Manhattan and the east channel, downtown Brooklyn, etc.

On the Staten Island Ferry looking back at Lower Manhattan. Just an amazing view. Thought I would dig into my NY images today.
