Taking portraits can often be a simple joy.
I made a deal with a friend and former grad school classmate to do a photo shoot as a gift, and we finally connected. We had fun. Taking portraits is a really wonderful way to spend quality time with people. You share stories. You connect in meaningful ways. You laugh. You joke. Sometimes you talk about the not-so-happy things too. This was one of the first pictures I snapped, and I loved the result. (Click on the photo to see a larger picture on a separate picture page.)
In a hidden corner of Discovery, you’ll find the Guardian of the Spirit statue and meeting place, by the Daybreak Start Native Cultural Center.
There are stairs all over the park that are hidden, seldom used, and relics from the time it was a major military base in Seattle.
I frequently go for walks in Seattle’s Discovery Park, one of the country’s best metropolitan parks. It is a true gem. Even knowing every corner of this place, I still discover new ways to see what is very familiar, and also beautiful.
