Leaving First Hill

Crossing over the freeway on Yesler, turning attention from the noise of traffic below to the serene view out to Alki and beyond. Seattlites continue to wait to emerge from the black and white of these cold gray days into the color and warmth of spring. We seem to be teased every other day or so :-). Hope this is a great Friday and beginning of a good weekend for you. We are happy to be starting spring break tomorrow.

That arch is the perfect platform for the verticals. B&W the absolute right choice. An entirely perfectly pitched photograph.

Beautiful, Kim! And I'm always a softie for black and white... Have a gorgeous weekend, everyone.

This photo certainly captures the cold feeling in these parts lately! I'm looking forward to my road trip to the South and beyond (and warmth) with D.C. Confidential. We will be visiting Virginia in Birmingham too! I'm so excited as I've never been to the East or the South.

Superb composition, enhanced by the bw. Believe it or not, it's finally much warmer today, but they say rain and cooler tomorrow, darn.
