I have really fallen in love with the great northwest region. I had never been there until 2 years ago, and now it calls out to me. I find myself thinking about all the different ways to photograph it and the beauty that it offers to everyone, however many people walk right by and never see the beauty it displays. The beauty comes from both nature and those that choose to embrace it with kindness and sharing passion for displaying this beauty. Many things go without being replaced often in this region. These flaws add character and somehow the citizens understand that this adds to the experience for the viewer. I live in a city where things are rebuilt as soon as they show the slightest sign of age or wear. I hate that, but it’s part of the city I live in, I have come to understand this is just how it will be. Seattle was kind to me when we visited, only raining in the late evening on 2 of the 5 days we visited. Otherwise it was just cool in the morning and perfect the rest of the day. As a photographer it was almost too easy, but as a visitor of this great city it was perfect. While photographing these panoramas, I wound up meeting a few people from other countries. I met an Italian man visiting from Venice, and another man from Sweden. His tripod was not working too well and I offered some assistance, unfortunately his camera mount wouldn’t fit my tripod. Then as we were leaving a couple from Stuttgart Germany approached and we spoke about there visit for a few minutes. I love travel photography, I meet some amazing people and we usually share a beautiful scene while the sun sets or rises, no matter what language you speak, everyone sees the same vision but captures it differently.
