Public Art Walk

Yesterday’s post was about the stylish people I ran into while wandering around Seattle. Today, I’ll let you know what I was up to when I wasn’t taking their pictures.

Mr. Jean of all Trades and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day. We parked at the edge of Belltown and explored the Olympic Sculpture Park—a wonderful public space with outdoor seating, paths and sculptures. It’s part of the Seattle Art Museum (SAM).

We walked down First Avenue, each with a camera, and took pictures of interesting signs, buildings and things. We continued past Pike Place Market, and ended up at the Seattle Art Museum. We didn’t go into the SAM this time, but we’re members so we’ll be back soon.

On our way back to the car, I found the stylish people I photographed for yesterday’s post. Then, my husband and I went to another Seattle neighborhood—Ballard—for an early dinner at India Bistro. I saw a lot of people in Ballard whose pictures I wanted to take, but I thought I shouldn’t jump up from dinner and run into the street with my camera.

I now know that the people passing through Buffalo Exchange are excellent street style candidates—and why not? It’s a great second-hand shop where stylish people in the know go to get great finds. More about them another time.
