Challenge #416-This Is The Place
I have a few places in the city that I know I can go to on any given day and produce some decent images. At the top of this list would be Pike Place Market but I also have Fisherman's Terminal or The Locks to fall back on if I need a maritime subject. Show me what your local "go to" spot can produce.

Results

Thank you all for giving me so many shots to choose from this week. So many great locations to work from. I know we all can find dynamic images anywhere in our daily lives but oh what fun it is to go someplace chock full of opportunities.


Car, I just wonder if I was quick or slow to notice the traffic cone…took me about 20 secs on the ipad

Steelydan, that thing just screams “scorpion” to me, very cool

Teekay, BC just pick any spot and there’ll be beauty to shoot

Raven, Langley Marina, nice choice. I’ve spent many a day and night on East Point just off of center frame

Marie, looks like they are going to lead you to the place

CMOats, a backyard like that would certainly do it.

Kevan, looks like the kind of place you can wander for hours with a camera

Sikaranista, throw that cat out in the snow and get some action shots!

Rich Road, botanical gardens, yes that has to come with a guarantee of photo opps.

Jt354, these spots don’t work so well for my photo outings as I have to put down the fly rod to shoot.

Katygirl, The Mall, I can only imagine all the opps, someday I’d sure like to visit there

Mrshobden, wetlands and boats all day any day for sure.

Maureen Souza, all your great photos and nothing on the wall?

First: Katygirl
Second:Jt354
Third: Linda

Have fun
Paul
