When we vacationed on Orcas Island a few years ago, I posted almost these exact same pictures. Don't you just love that market place? So close to the water, so much to see and do, and the colors...so much it is almost overwhelming. In that last photo I recognize that booth, the one with the hanging fruit garlands. My daughter still has hers hanging in her kitchen. I think the peppers just dried up and look beautiful. They last for years. Kim...what program do you use to make the edges of the photos like that? They remind me of old polaroids.

I was downtown Seattle last wednesday - first time in months - walked through the market and marveled at the sights - your pics captured it perfectly!

It's been ages since I've been to the Seattle Public Market. These photos are amazing! Love how you chose to show this place in photo.

Awesome! Did you "posterize"?

Never been to Seattle but love your shots of the people in the Alley way. In fact, all your pics rock! Keep up the good shooting.

Oooooh your photos are bright and beautiful and a little bit grungy, I love them . How do you do that edge thing ? Is it a tricky thing to do in photo shop ? I especially love the people walking down the alley. Your photos really make me want to visit, love the chillies in the last one too . xx
