I had a fun time yesterday taking a “summer holiday” trip in Seattle. It is possible to do that here, without even leaving the city. As the sun was going down, I stopped with a friend at Pono Ranch, yet another watering hole establishment that opened in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. The beer garden/restaurant is not quite like what one would find in Englischer Garten in Munich, Germany, but the owners have turned the industrial landscape into a fun place to enjoy a summer night and have fun connecting with friends.
I shot this picture with my Fujifilm X-Pro 1 camera, using a 24mm Leica Lens. A fairly diverse clientele seemed to favor this place. I liked the vibe, the metal fountains, and the metal scrap art. Apparently they serve organic fried chicken, if you’re into that kind of thing. Be prepared for a limited beer selection, though.
