Made a trip up to Seattle recently to shoot the usual cityscapes at night. It's been about 6 years since I've been up here, having come with my first DSLR, a Nikon D80, 6 years ago.
First stop was sunset at Kerry Park. What a change from 6 years ago. There were maybe a handful of people here the first time I visited. On this evening, I was lucky to even find a place to park, and even luckier that someone walked away from the solid wall of people at the railing overlooking this view.
After the sunset ended my family and I left to find dinner. We returned after dark to find the park still crowded, but with the same amazing views I remember.
A parting panorama and then off to see the other views. Ones I didn't know about 6 years ago.
Here is the now infamous 12th street bridge scene. The bridge itself was crowded with several photographers - of course. I made my way up and down the bridge to shoot the familiar scene I've been admiring in pictures for the last few years. One the way back to the car, I spied a fenced off grassy area that looked promising. Turns out it was an off-leash dog park that while technically closed, afforded the nice view seen here through some convenient holes in the fence, no doubt cut by some photographer years ago.
We visited a few other spots, but I have yet to process those images. Overall a short but productive photo trip up to Seattle.
