I have lived in Seattle for seven and a half years, and it feels like each summer season is better than the previous. It’s a city where it never gets too humid, there’s plenty of sunshine, and the grey skies that seem to threaten rain do not last very long. Spending time outside and enjoying the city where I live has made me feel grateful for what and who I have in my life. I’m not unhappy to see summer take its leave once again. Rather, I look forward to autumn and the new opportunities that may come with the new season.
The image above is TIA’s Photo of the Day for September 22nd from my personal photography venture, Project “2014 : 365”. It’s only when I capture images like these that I notice how extremely long my limbs are. Since I was a teenager, I could always touch my knees without bending.
This photo was captured in one of my favorite spots — Seahurst Park in Burien, south of Seattle. Very serene, secluded, and romantic. People in Seattle often don’t come here because it’s not within city limits. They are missing out on something incredibly special.
Wishing you all a wonderful Autumn or Spring depending on your location and hemisphere!
