We usually avoid the crowd, but sometimes it’s fun to step to the side and observe.
Then there are some stunning vistas and monuments that have to be captured and recorded.

Make it Strong

Where did July go? Did I miss it? I had the opportunity to review my recent photos yesterday and found I only had a camera in my hands for three days of the 31 in July. Poor! Oh well, August promises to be quite…

Street Shooting

Saturday saw Liddy and I in the company of a bunch of Tacoma Photographic Society Photo Nuts. We all hopped on the Link Light Rail at Angle Lake Station and rode up to Westlake where we spent the morning on the street.†

Going Wild

Pike Place Public Market

Last week Liddy and I spent a few hours at Pike Place Public Market in Seattle. We like to take Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail from Angle Lake in Tuckwila up to Westlake Center. Then we walk down to the market on Pine Street.
I enjoy the opportunity to get out and observe the tourists. Liddy enjoys to opportunity to learn to stay close, and mind her manners in crowded places.
Here are the photos from the day.
