On the Streets: Morning in the Market
I was up early this morning and headed for Pike Place Market. It was really cold out. Before you say that we don’t know cold in Seattle, I’ll mention that I spent 20 years off and on in DC and a couple of years in NYC. It was cold here in Seattle this morning. (I’ve written previously that it’s a different sort of cold, one that I hope to get used to.)
I had my sights on Lowell’s for breakfast. The menu looked good, and it sounded like they have a good view over Elliott Bay. They do. It costs a lot more than I’d like to spend on a meal, but my stomach was set on a smoked salmon scramble. It was delicious. Too expensive for a return trip anytime soon, but delicious. Hash Brown Discipline update – I ate most of the hash browns, but I did manage to leave some on the plate. It wasn’t easy; they were exactly the way I like hash browns.
I took some photos. Technical(ish) Notes: I was in a black and white mood, and while I like high contrast, these are higher contrast than I normally shoot or process. I used the Acros R film simulation for most of the black and whites. I think most of the color photos were shot with the Velvia simulation. From there it’s a mix of JPEGs and processed RAW images. Minimal processing – minor movements of some of the basic sliders and changes from Linear to Medium or Strong contrast.
