I went up to Seattle to visit some friends, along with an overseas friend who happened to be in the Northwest visiting her sister. Since I’d only been up to Seattle for dragon boat races or various scheduled events, I had never taken the time to see the city. This time, however, I was taken everywhere in Seattle. With the aid of several friends (passing me off to one another) I did the full blown tourist tour of Seattle.
A bit of a geek alert: I used my “travel camera” for this trip. My Nikon D80, which I had brought all around Europe, hadn’t seen much use ever since my D700 took over. But, for the sake of “letting go” I opted to bring my prosumer camera instead of my professional camera. I wanted my trip to be more about visiting friends and seeing the city while taking “some” pics (aka a lot since my friends like taking pictures just as much as me) and having a LIGHT load. It was good, and I don’t regret bringing it instead of the D700.
