Spring light over Seattle and the Salish Sea

    An interesting series, Henry – I can understand your beautiful light, and the city looks varied and well worth visiting. My uncle used to live in Seattle and he was one of the organisers of the 1962 World’s Fair. He passed away this february, almost 90 years old. I used to be at him to write a book about his life – but unfortunately he never did. Life is short and we try to make the most of it.

      Hi, Ann-Christine. Have you visited Seattle previously? What was the name of your uncle who helped organize the 1962 World’s Fair in Seattle? I agree with what you said about how our lives are “short”, which is why I’m looking forward to traveling in the near future and visiting Seattle again. Thank you for your kind comment and for dropping by.

      I have never been to the US and will never go. My uncle’s name was Kurt Johnsson. Say hello Seattle from me!

    thanks for the fond memory of our visits to Seattle Henry. On our last visit the Chihuly exhibit was in town and it was fabulous. I love the way the mountain peeks through in your Centennial Park image – it’s one of my favorite thing about the city (in addition to the wonderful restaurants of course!)

      Hi, Tina. With the proximity of water, trees, and mountains, the light is especially important, even under overcast greys 😎 It’s definitely a similarity with where I am in Vancouver. As you’ve correctly observed, Mount Rainier (Tahoma) is never far away with its snow-capped presence in views throughout the city. But it’s also a reminder that the mountain is host to a *dormant* volcano 😳 I can’t wait to return to Seattle in the near future. Thanks for your comment and for dropping by!
