I-5 Ship Canal Bridge

Yesterday I took a photowalk with a Flickr photo group I belong to called Alives in the S U P E R U K N O W N (after the Soundgarden album). The group was created by Photo Coyote, an Italian photo enthusiast who is a huge fan of all things Seattle. He and his family spent some time here last year, and he recreated a walk he took at that time and sent the group the route. It led us through the Eastlake neighborhood, across the University Bridge, into the U-District, and west on 45th into Wallingford. With photos of landmarks in hand we explored to our hearts content. It was a perfect sunny day, and very pleasant company. I had fun meeting Flickr contacts in person, and thanks to Photo Coyote for putting it all together from his home in Italy. Having him present is the only thing that could have made the adventure better.

It sounds as if it was indeed a splendid walk.

Sounds like an enjoyable outing. It is interesting how different photographers at the same place can come away with different images. That happens to my wife and me all the time.

Fun! I'd like to do one sometime. This bridge looks like it's really leaping.

How fun! Son Jeff used to participate in monthly photoblogger get togethers when he blogged from Seattle. Alas, with parenthood and a move to the Bay Area, most of his blogging is in the past.

Superb photo and post! Like all the movement in the subjects and your angle on the bridge. Thanks for the info about your photowalk with that group. Thanks too, Kim for the heads up on not using the embedded setting for the comments column!

Beautiful shot - the weeping willows, the canoe - nice!

That sounds like so much fun! I really like this photo-- the line of grey bridge, the line of grey kayak, the line of grey sidewalk. But best of all, it's not on a grey day!
