SEATTLE | Loitering and Spitting

I realize I don't go to Seattle nearly enough considering how close I live. Well, my wife and son had to fly out of town a couple weeks ago and I decided to take a trip north on I-5 to spend some quality time in the city. It was a Sunday and I had to be back in Portland for work Monday morning, but I rarely get time to drive anywhere on my own and/or spend the day taking photos, so the 6-hour round trip wasn't enough to deter me. I meant to stay until after sunset and take a few night shots before heading back home, but my camera battery died right around sunset and the backup I packed was a dud. Just as well, I guess, since it started raining almost immediately after I left.

Anyway, here's a Sunday's worth of photos. I tried not to duplicate too much of what I did in the other Seattle thread I posted back in 2009. If you're interested, here's a link to that one.

And here are links to my last few threads…

Stunning! All those shots are top tier. You are attracting me to Seattle and it's great to see it from your lens.

F*cking hell!
*hides head in shame at my thread from the same weekend*

It was totally gorgeous on that Sunday morning and the visibility was stellar. Got a bit cold around noon when the clouds moved in (I was on a boat) and then nice and sunny again in the afternoon (roaming Chinatown). Did you manage to get a shot of Rainier before it totally disappeared behind the clouds?

Great city. My wife is basically ready to ditch Santa Barbara and move up there. I tried to explain to her that it rains all the time but we lucked out with the weather.

Absolutely top tier..

As a resident, albeit a newer one, I'd say you've captured a lot of the lingering imagery floating around in my head that encompasses how I view this city. LOVE the shots from the north(U District and Walingford?) - as much as I love the iconic Beacon Hill view, you can't grasp the size of the city nearly as well as it is laid out from the north/northwest.

yeah, i'd say for an afternoon's effort, this is a hell of a seakkle set. love the shot of the ship through the alaskan viaduct and the graffiti wall panos.

no, I didn't even see it on the drive up there. It was sunny off and on, but whenever I was anywhere where I might have had a vantage point to the mountain, it was behind clouds.

Amazing...especially for one day. Seattle sure does have diverse weather for 24 hours.
