My friend Jaki Portolese organized a photo walk this past weekend in Discovery Park. Seattle is unique in the sense that while it's a big, high-rise building filled city, it still possesses various nature-esque elements. And for someone who wants their cake and still eat it, the Emerald City allows once to be a city folk, and a classic Northwest outdoorsman all at once. Hiking, camping, fishing, surfing and snowboarding are anywhere from 45 minutes to three hours away.
Fortunate to have so many photographer friends so close to me.
