Seattle’s Museum of Flight

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve always been a fan of museums just as I have always studied flight in wonderment. Living so close to Boeing, I get my fair share of interesting aerial sightings. I did photograph the Blue Angels from Boeing field, where I acquired the worst sunburn of my adult life. But not until recently had I had the opportunity to attend  Boeing’s Museum of Flight.

I highly recommend this educational day trip adventure to anyone. The history is rich within those walls. The knowledgeable and personable docents were eager to strike up an informative conversation with patrons. The large main room windows allowed for light to pour through many different types of suspended aircraft. The outdoor portion was quite cold (being the middle of the winter, to be expected. lol) but worth being uncomfortable. This is where we were able to walk through some aircraft, including JFK’s airforce one. Cool stuff.

Overall, the entire visit was a whole lot of fun and very educational. The staff was great, too.

Recently, a new friend invited me to photograph an event; Her Big Day: A Cultural Wedding Affair. The showroom was full of brilliantly arranged and decorated booths featuring some of the finest wedding garments, floral arrangements, jewelry, and beauty specialists in the industry.

Designers’ featured their culturally diverse designs in a spectacular fashion show. The gorgeous models we just as diverse in all size, shape, attitude, and ethnicity.

Pike Place Market Photo Walk 2016

A recent project had me snapping some shots with a wide lens around Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. I arrived relatively early but the market was already bustling. Businesses were rushing to prepare for commerce. Bakers were baking. Produce stands were sampling their wares to passersby. Shoppers and tourists happily shuffled the halls of the indoor market in search of artisan products or other treasures that might be found within some hidden nook of the public market. The historic halls still have life to them yet!

Outside of the comfort and safety of the market, the air was incredibly heavy with humidity. The sky threatened rain. The brisk wind reminded pedestrians that autumn is around the corner.

If you happen to be in the area, I highly recommend visiting Pike Place. Visit if only to experience a little piece of Seattle history and culture. (Guided tours are available) Experience the produce and flower stands. Experience the fish markets. Experience the baked goods and artisan crafts. Experience Seattle.

Exploring Fremont

I’ve been trying to get out and explore a bit more. There is a lot to learn and appreciate about this area. I took an afternoon and walked about a bit of Fremont. In all honesty, I wish I had left earlier. the bus ride was a brutal hour and  half! (yuck) But the adventure was worth it.

While at the bus stop, I took a photo of the sky to show how exceptionally clear the day was… at least when I began my journey.

Sometimes, I feel like a creeper.

Fremont certainly has a style all its own.

The beautiful weather attracted all sorts to come outside and play. The water and trail were quite active. I even spotted some local wildlife.

Even though I know I haven’t even scratched the surface, Fremont has to be one of my favorite neighborhoods, I think.

Gas Works Park was fun, too. I made it in time to see the crowd gathering atop the hill to usher out a glorious day; the break from the Seattle winter gloom.

It was refreshing to be able to shake off the winter blues for a while and surround myself with so many others just enjoying the same in their own ways.
