Seattle has been a bit of a fixture for me over the last couple of months. Following Amerivespa in July I visited the Flying Heritage Collection earlier in August. Last weekend I was back in town for a short weekend break. The focal point of the trip was another visit to MoPop (formerly EMP) as there was a gallery of Mick Rock's early Bowie photographs. This was Bowie on the verge of superstardom. Whilst on the subject of musical legends, the Jimi Hendrix exhibit is always worth browsing, tracing his life abroad from 19966 to his untimely death in 1970. If you've ambitions to play like Hendrix (set those standards high), a great place to start your education is at Beginner Guitar HQ, check out the basics and up your game.
I didn't give myself a photography brief for the visit so the shots below are really a few tourist captures with a sprinkling of 'street' thrown in. Space Needle was looking particularly impressive with the sun peeking behind the saucer before 10am. It was also fun watching adults and kids play at the International Fountain. Water, enthralling young and old. The street shots near the Gum Wall were of people heading away from the area and I tried to capture those simply going about their day rather than visit the gum. Back in MoPop I went for a couple of Sci-Fi images that reflect humans as emotionless machines. Chilling yet captivating.
