    Pike Place Market must be a wonder! I’ve heard of it, but never really thought about what it contains. I think it would put our farmers’ markets to shame, although I suspect ours are less expensive!

      The Pike Place Market is truly one of Seattle’s treasures, for locals and tourists alike. Worthy of being on your bucket list!

    It’s funny, I was looking for a row of oranges from the market in these great orangey photos!! loved the one of the fish guy showing the crab to the little boy! Lots of orange there and of course, the flower shots are gorgeous!! Have you ever read the children’s book, Hailstones and Halibut bones??

      I’ll have to look for the book in the library now that you’ve mentioned it! Wish I would have photographed an ornage traffiic cone — lots of construction this summer in Seattle. That would have been a summery orange.

    Yes, the orange traffic cones…seems they are everywhere, these days!! I hope you can find the book. I think you’ll like it!

  5. […] As I walked around Seattle, I paid special attention to the colors of summer — reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, and purples.  With this post, I’ll take you around the color wheel […]
