If you could hop on a plane and travel anywhere in the world right this minute, where would you go?
I’ve only been to Seattle twice but the first time felt like I was returning home. Ever since then I have felt like I left a piece of myself behind. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend a trip there. It’s so hard to describe the vibe of the Pacific Northwest. I haven’t experienced a place like this anywhere else.
Some top spots to check out:
Things I love about this city:
- Foodie heaven
- Coffee galore
- Music to soothe the soul
- Water, mountain, city life
Basically I need to move here ASAP.
My sister took this picture (thanks) of me on our trip to the Pacific Northwest. I loved every minute of my time in Seattle and the surrounding areas. I always feel like I’m returning home when I visit there. My heart will always belong along the Pacific.
What was your last major purchase?
For nearly a decade I have been taking photographs. It calms me, centers me, and allows me to express myself. Photography is one of my loves.
Three years ago I purchased my first DSLR and haven’t looked back. Usually major purchases involve a mix of buyer’s guilt and indecision for me, but not this time. It was my Christmas present to myself.
This shot is one of my firsts taken in my hometown. I love the simplicity of black and white photos, the whole story of the photo is hidden with the details just beneath the surface. I try to have my camera with me at all times, not knowing when inspiration will hit.
This is a later shot in Seattle that was taken while I was on vacation. It is one of my favorite photos I have ever taken. All of Washington was amazing and perfect to photograph. The Pacific Northwest is my dream destination.
My weakness in photography is portraits. I am never happy with what I manage to capture. Plus, I guess I am not a people person which would be helpful when trying to photograph others.
What hobby of yours keeps you sane?
One of my favorite cities in the U.S. that I really miss. Can’t wait to return to the Pacific Northwest next month.
