Seattle in the early...

Experience Seattle in the early part of the year during the cooler side of extended weather unpredictability. I call this the Winter/Wring/Sprinter season. Two steps forward, one step back... Never know what you're going to get. These are up to spring 2009. Thanks to Sekkle for telling me how to do the borders.





































---------!!!WRING/SPRINTER!!!---------









































---------!!!*SPRING*!!!---------



























Finally, we start shedding layers.






And we dare to sit on the ground again.


But sometimes you've already been on the ground.


Sure can't wait for spring!

what's the neighbourhood in the foreground? it looks really old/dense/built up considering its distance from the dt core.

Yes, this is one of the old streetcar neighborhoods. Breaks my heart what the oil/auto folks did to us. Just imagine what could have been. :'(

That is the bridge that goes from next to the headquarters of Amazon.com on Beacon Hill to the International district and little Saigon on First Hill.

These definitely introduce a perspective of Seattle I haven't seen. I'm really wanting to go there for my birthday this year.

More and more I find myself considering going there for a little trip this summer. Seattle is so enticing and so are these photos!
