After the Space Needle, Pike Place Market is probably the next most popular tourist spot in Seattle. I love to visit the market. I t’s so full of life, so much to see. When we visited to get shots of the market and the gum wall I went around trying to find an abstract view. I thought of Rachel the Pig’s feet or her foot prints, a close up of some fish or produce, and so on. As we left I snapped this shot on the corner and when the negatives came out it caught my eye. I liked all the textures and shadows and ended up doing a pretty dark exposure.
Well I hope you enjoyed my Seattle Calendar. I thoroughly enjoyed taking the photos and making it. I went with the FedEx Design & Print Center to print it because they were the only online service I could find that would let me use square photos. All the others wanted to crop them to 4×6. And FedEx had a nice classic black layout without any cutesy graphics.
Here they are all together like you might see on the back of a calendar.
