Vacation is over, back to work.
I'm back home from a week in Seattle. It was my first visit to that town, and it was an overall pleasant experience. My wife has a business trip, and my daughter and I tagged along. Of course, I brought my camera.
A few impressions of Seattle:
1. Not as crime-ridden and overrun with homeless drug users as the media makes it out to be. I saw a few makeshift tents and the drug users were there, but mostly concentrated in a few spots. Overall, the streets were clean and safe with a strong police presence. Panhandlers weren't any worse than most American cities. In terms of homelessness, Seattle didn't compare to what I saw in California last year.
2. People were generally friendly. Maybe that was because everyone was high - everywhere you go smells like skunk-weed.
3. Everything is expensive.
4. Seattle is an international city. I heard so many different languages.
5. Great food.
6. Great art, and we only scratched the surface.
7. It's a photographer's paradise. I had so much to shoot, and so little time to do it. I could have stayed another week.
Gotta go now, check back on my Facebook for more images over the next week.
