Photography to me is a chance to focus on the beauty all around me. So often we find ourselves hustling through the day, trying to take care of everything on our to-do list that we forget to take a moment to be mindful of all that is wonderful around us.
Last weekend, at the end of a thoroughly crazy week, I met up with two fellow photographers and we drove over to Seattle to some of the better known Seattle photo spots. It was a great way to connect with each other, learn from each other and in the process take some fabulous pictures of Seattle.
Yes, I have seen many much better photographers take photos in these spots, but there is something special about having your own pictures. Plus, there are plenty of pictures to compare to and again, learn about what their approach to the picture was.
Here are some of the pictures I took. I am pretty happy with them, but would love to go again to learn more and to explore a few of the lesser known spots in our beautiful city.
