A visit to Pike Place Market

Yesterday we took an early ferry into Seattle and spent the day at the Pike Place Market walking, shopping, dining and also visiting the Seattle Art Museum or SAM. The weather was a continually changing mix of sun, clouds and fog which provided interesting conditions for taking photos. Today, and for several following days, I'll post some of those images from our visit.
Ah, shrooms! Sad to think of the delicate, nutty chanterelle coming to season's end here in the Pacific Northwest.

Great shot, Raf. Some of my favorite photos are from PPM. Looking forward to seeing the rest...

Yum - look at the variety of produce in that shot & variety of splendid color! Did you have them set that up for you like that? Wonderful photo. I've never tasted those mushrooms & will have to now.
I walked by SAM at night in August & was really impressed by the Workman sculpture casting a very tall shaddow on the dark museaum & saw the neon sparking, hanging cars from the windows.

Pike Place Market is always a fun place to visit--all day long. Did you happen to Chuck of Seattle Daily blog? He has a spot at the market. MB

The colours are wonderful! You'd never see anything other than the ubiquitous button mushroom on sale here.

Funny looking mushrooms. Whats next to them, they look like buckeyes, or what we used to call buckeyes.

Excellent shot! I love them too! They don't last long enough though.
