One of Seattle’s most famous icons, Pike Place Market is a photographer’s paradise. Neon lights, charismatic people, beautiful views of Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier…you name it, The Market has it. I like to arrive especially early in the morning, preferable after a rainy night. The wet, slick brick road leading into the market will give off beautiful reflections of the colorful neon signs, and hopefully there won’t be many parked cars to spoil your foreground. The traffic this Sunday morning was especially light. I was able to set up my tripod in the middle of the road and snap a few shots. I suggest you stroll up and down the market and surrounding neighborhoods. Take your time, walk slowly and look for interesting compositions. After you’ve finished shooting, stop by a local cafe or restaurant and grab a little breakfast. There are also beautiful flower arrangements throughout the market. Why not buy some for your home? This morning, I ate at Lowell’s restaurant while enjoying views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
