10 Photos to Inspire you to Travel to Seattle

Introducing 5 Photos Friday!

First off, welcome to my first 5 Photos Friday post! I’m excited to introduce this new series, because I like the idea of inspiring people to travel through photography, and I have plenty of inspiring photos from my travels. It’s a way for me to collect a few nice photos and share them under one travel relevant topic, via a short and sweet blog post. You can look forward to it every Friday! At least that’s the plan!

Starting off with 10 photos

To kick off 5 Photos Friday, I’m already going to break my rule by posting 10 photos. It’s about inspiring you to travel to Seattle, and since I live here, I have A LOT of photos and I had to share more than 5. I even turned to my Facebook Page for some help narrowing them down from 12. Granted I asked for help a bit too late and while taking the few votes into consideration, I have ultimately decided on the 10 to show here. I appreciate those votes that I did receive, but I can’t base my decision off of just a few… this is serious stuff, ya know! ;)

10 photos to inspire you to travel to Seattle

I’ve been all over the world, but Seattle is the place I’ve chosen to make my home. There are many reasons for this, but one big reason is that it is beautiful here! Seattle is so close to the mountains and the ocean, and there are so many outdoor activities to do here. The city itself is also one of the prettiest modern cities I have ever seen.

I have come to know many great spots for photography and I have captured many beautiful moments. Here are just a few of those, gathered here to inspire you to travel to Seattle! Don’t be surprised if I have to post another set of Seattle photos in an upcoming 5 Photos Friday.

This one is my secret. I like to call it Tiny Beach. Besides, I don’t know the actual name of this place.

  • Sandrine - Your picture of the train in Seattle is just amazing, I love it ! The others are good too, but I find this one very personnal.ReplyCancel

    • traciehowe - Oh thank you, Sandrine! The monorail is such an icon of Seattle and I wanted to capture it in a different way than what I had seen before. I actually have another one that features the monorail and the EMP without the Space Needle that I like more, but most people would enjoy this one with the Space Needle. ;) I appreciate your comment!ReplyCancel
