Downtown Holiday Lights Street Walk

RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER.

Downtown Seattle is all decorated for the holidays and the streets are full of people.  This is a great time for street photography. We'll meet at 5:00 to walk the streets and get some great shots.  For those of you who can't make 5:00, we'll regroup again at the Westlake Center Starbucks at 6:00pm for a second go-around.  Bring your tripod for some fun night shots.  I'll also be helping you compose for composite images if you are interested.

    I hope no one minds that I post a couple of photos I got on Monday the 22nd. My leg was still much too painful and swollen to go on the 17th but the spirit was there.

    It didn't rain, yayy. I ran into Marnee so was able to have someone to walk around with, then joined Alan, Greg, and Lynn at the end at a bar so it all worked out well, in spite of traffic hassles (there was an accident on I5 at Union St exit which caused a big delay. I would have walked around a bit longer but had to get home. Definitely want to go back and take more night photos while it's pretty downtown

      Oh no! Heather will be there around 6:30. I think there will be a Flickr group around there at 6.

  • Heather D

    Since my tripod was stolen yesterday, I'm not going to be able to take good photos without it so I'll have to skip it unfortunately as I can't get a replacement soon :-(

    It's pouring rain here so if it doesn't stop, I'm going to have to pass. I'm still really tired from finals and all the end of quarter projects and I really don't want to get sick again. Hopefully we are rescheduling until next week.

    I have to bail also. My email has been down for several days, so I didn't get the reminders until just now, and won't have time to go get equipment and get there. Sadness...

    Free parking?

    December 4, 2013

    • Mari W.

      Depending on where you're coming from, I highly recommend taking transit instead of driving, it's cheaper, hassle-free, and you can park for free at a park & ride lot close to you and ride straight into downtown. A list of P&Rs can be found here, just look for one near you. http://www.wsdot.wa.g...­

      Then go to http://www.commtrans....­ and put in your preferred P&R and "westlake center" as your destination. It will tell you price and give you a detailed itinerary and map, and will also let you easily plan your reverse trip without reinputing everything.

      (PS, if a Sound Transit route is available at your P&R location, I recommend it! ST buses in particular are clean, cushy and warm. :)

    I was planning on doing this on this very same day anyway! Nice to have company! And I would love to learn how to do composites! :D
