I have been wanting to do an urban photo series for quite some time -- Here is the first installation.
I have lived in the Seattle area for almost two years and have lived in Seattle Seattle for almost a year now. The scope of this series is to capture to emotions I feel when I'm walking or driving around the city I now call home.
Pioneer Square is a historic neighborhood in Seattle with stately Renaissance Revival architecture. Artsy and old. Bricks and lights. There's a plethora of wedding venues, night clubs, and homeless people alike.
Growing up on 5 acres in California and then living in North Dakota, Seattle is the first real city I've lived in. There's so many people, but in a way it's more lonely. Everything is just busy and much more fast paced. The city is so beautiful, but I am convinced some people that live in Seattle are too busy to notice.
That's what I want to try to catch. The streets and places walked by every day. The textures and buildings and everyday places. This isn't a studio. This is just the alley in Pioneer Square.
