Saturday evening, I hooked up with Maya of Maya Photography and she showed me all around Seattle's downtown area. I have no clue where we were exactly at all times, but she was a great tour guide.
A tripod would have been useful for these, but I still like them : Pike Place Market : Seattle, WA
Of course, a tripod would have been helpful that night and I had it with me, but left it in the trunk of the car. I've found that it works best there. (That's also where I store my umbrella on rainy days as it's less likely to get wet that way.) The result of being tripod-less were these two happy mistakes at Pike Place.
After we saw Pike Place Market, we walked around the plaza near Macy's and then walked through Capitol Hill. What struck me most, for some odd reason, was all of the neon. We don't have a lot of neon in downtown D.C., but Seattle seems to have a ton of it. Most of my pictures from that night feature lots of neon.
If these five pictures aren't enough neon for you, come back tomorrow when I'll be featuring a few more examples of lighted wonder as part of the weekly Two Things Challenge!
We also walked past the city's bus tunnel, which looked really cool in the night light, so I snapped a picture. Not your typical, iconic Seattle sight (those will show up here on Monday), but quite beautiful nonetheless.
Tomorrow: Two Things Challenge and more neon.
