We’re back in our home away from home (Taipei, Taiwan) after spending five weeks with family and friends in Seattle, Indianapolis and Palm Springs. It is always fun to get back home, start editing photos and seeing if any themes pop out. After quickly going through the haul of photos from this trip there was one theme that I’d like to share here, landscapes taken in and around Seattle. Of course I’m more than slightly biased in thinking that Seattle is a particularly photogenic city. I can’t help it, it will always be home.

If you’re looking for further details on the locations of any of these photos spots, don’t hesitate to ask. Happy shooting!

Taking a ferry always offers some unique views for the Puget Sound. If you look closely you can see this summer's Super Moon in the top left side of the frame. Mt. Rainier is still mostly snow-covered at this point in the summer.
