One of the highlights of our trip was spending three & a half days in the beautiful city of Seattle. I've grown up watching movies & television that give you glimpses of the Seattle skyline, but to truly experience the beauty of the colors, landscapes, & feelings you must explore this lovely city for yourself.
To finally arrive at Pike Place market, this familiar scene that has been captured by tourists and films for years, is surreal. The sights, the smells, the sounds, the people: overwhelming & wonderful all at once.
We spent the first day in Seattle galavanting around the city with Will Foster & the lovely Gena joined us in the afternoon. Our first stop was fish & chips for lunch on the waterfront. (But I had a hamburger because I am not a seafood fan.) And then we immersed ourselves in the Seattle sights.
We discovered Post Alley & added our DNA in the form of Big Red cinnamon gum to the famous gum wall. This is probably the most germ infested place on Earth.
We stumbled upon this magnificent parking garage & had a miniature photoshoot. Five photographers = hundreds of photos. All day... everyday.
We stopped at Caffe D'Arte for some mocha & then trekked a couple miles to see the Space Needle. (Rachel, Abby, Monika, & I went to the top of the Space Needle before the trip was over as our last hurrah.)
The result: my absolute favorite photo from the whole trip & probably the funniest photo I've ever been in.
