A Market Visit

It was one of those beautiful spring mornings in Seattle when glimpses of the sun start breaking through the low cloud cover.  The vendors were still setting up along the corridors of Pike Place Market. I walked up the hill to 1st Ave and Pine St. to shoot this view across Elliott Bay with the market sign in the foreground. And right on cue, a steady flow of busy people started stepping into the frame just to do their part for the composition. Thank you, Seattleites!

I love when that happens. Just last week i was doing some street photography and just as I was taking a shot of a busy intersection, voila, a cyclist entered the scene. Fabulous!

I love it, Raf, when people step upon my stage. They simply 'make' a composition. And these two are in such wonderful synch ...

That's SO classic Seattle, Raf! Sorry I been so quiet these last couple weeks, I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough even though I was immunized) and have had another very rough week. Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot!

Was there just this last January taking lots of photos as I came over from my daughter's house in Kirkland. Loved visiting your city and walking the streets. Thanks for bring up such a great memory.
