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!

Rays of the Sun

About the only time we see the rays of the sun in the Pacific NW is as an architectual detail.

Late Summer

Tree lined streets in the Sabin area of NE Portland. Soon the leaves will be wind-blown about and perhaps raked into large piles for the street sweeper.

Seattle Sun

This was my second attempt at capturing the odd shade of sunlight that afternoon. I did use a Polarizing filter, but no post production work on color or saturation. The light just had this brownish tinge to it. Seemed odd to me at the time. I think this image is closer to what I actually saw. It was dusk about an hour later. DSC_0026a 

 

Friday Whimsy

In the Pacific Northwest we rely on artificial devices to remind us of what the sun may look like. This tree has such a lumpy trunk from pruning it looks like it has gone through a series of plastic surgeries.
