Seattle – March 2009

This is my last blog post for 2009. What a great year for travels. I’m finally getting to all my back logged photos from the trips I’ve been on this year. In March of 2009 I went to Seattle. These photos are mainly from the west side in Alki Beach. It’s amazing to shoot downtown Seattle from across the bay:
