Wide-Eyed at Seattle’s Pike Place Market


On my photography outings, I’ve never used a variable wide angle as my only lens. The holiday season was a good excuse to visit Pike Place Market yesterday, which my wife and I would’ve done last week if it weren’t for the freezing temperatures. The closed-in, tight spaces of the market are ideal for wide-angle shots. The summer bounty of produce and flowers were long gone (as was the summer crush of tourists), but there were plenty of interesting subjects.
