One Rainy Day in Seattle...
If you've ever visited our "Rain City" before, then I know you'll be
familiar with some of the photos I took.
If not, then I hope you'll enjoy the journey
through my post here today.
This is the famous Pikes Market Place.
Summer is the busy time here, but I love to visit this place even on a rainy, chilly day.
During one of my visits here, I ran into this man, and I was pleasantly surprised
to find him painting!
I'm not experienced with "street photography."
I'm always worried that I might get caught.
In fact, in this case, and to make a long story short, I DID get caught. Lol
Since I was already having lunch here, I brought him a sandwich and chatted with
him a bit, explaining my curiosity.
He was happy to show me some of his paintings which included one
of the ferry you see crossing here.
I remember thinking to myself...
How beautiful it is, that this man no matter his background, or abilities as an artist,
comes out here alone, inspired by the
beauty of Puget Sound and paints!
It was a beautiful memory of Seattle for me, and at the end of this day,
the sun came out. :-)
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, and remember…
spring is just around the corner!
Great photos though, and proof that it doesn't always rain. I'll bet that painter appreciated your kindness!
Have a fantastic week!
I am glad you "got caught," otherwise you would not have gotten to speak to him! :-)
Happy day to you!
I don't know. It was -50c here with the windchill this weekend and this morning we are getting a dump of snow. In like a lion out like a lamb? I am hoping so.
I'm seeping in the moist air of Seattle...it's been so long since I was there, but it still seems so familiar.
One of my favorite places in the world.
