Seattle Public Market

July 31, 2008

The Public Market district was unknown to me until I saw the Meg Ryan Tom Hanks movie about 10 years ago. The sign, which even locals call iconic captured my imagination. Once on the scene, the smells, restaurants, and street singing swung me into a happy mood. This is a fun place.

Las Vegas Bellagio Fountains

July 15, 2008

My favorite time to see the fountains is evening because the lights make the already scenic water jets look even more impressive. On this visit the sun was just setting so the water lights were not a factor. What drew me most to the scene were the throngs of people lined up around the lake to see the show. The sun was gleaming off the Paris hotel across the street. It was a beautiful display of water and music. The crowd loved it. Once the show was over though, everyone moved on right away. Instead my wife and I stayed for a while and enjoyed the view. I’ll be visiting this one again. One change I may still make to the image below is cropping a small part of the bottom a bit. Please tell me your thoughts on this one.

Florence Oregon Bridge

July 14, 2008

The coast of Oregon consistently has some of the most beautiful bridges. Each one a little different but all in a similar style. It didn’t take much digging to find out many were designed by a man named Conde B. McCullough in the early 1930’s. This bridge in Florence is a good example of the ones I enjoyed seeing.
