One of the things I miss most about Portland is the ease of the city. Of course there were times when traffic was not pleasurable but after experiencing Seattle traffic I may have to amend those thoughts! It was so easy to get to, park and enjoy Portland… not to mention a whole lot cheaper.
Seattle is a great town, don’t get me wrong but so difficult to actually take advantage of especially with a little one. We mostly reserve trips to the city for visitor outings. Here are some pictures from one of our most recent excursions. Finding it impossible to get a good shot of Ava I turned to photographing the city something I rarely do as people are more my thing. It was fun however to attempt creativity in a different genre. I must remember to experiment more often. Variety is good for the artistic sole! These were all taken near the famous Pike Place Market… and home of the very first Starbucks!
