Purple haze


Seattle is a city filled with rich visual cues. Look down most downtown streets and you can catch glimpses of water at the very end. The distant horizon is painted with snow-covered peaks, often shrouded in clouds.

Closer in, the streets themselves offer up an ongoing collage of activity and color. People walk and ride everywhere in this city. They like to be entertained as they do.

I didn't have much free time to explore when I was there last week, but I was able to snap off some quick images here and there. As always, looking at them makes me think about what I was thinking when I took the shot. I wonder how I could improve the results next time out.

As I ponder the meaning of photographic life, I'll let you guess what this one might be.

Your turn: It's been a while since I did the first-three-words thing. What are the first three words that pop into your head as you see this?
