An explosion of color and wonderful scents abound in Pike Place Market, Seattle’s original farmer’s market established in 1907. Deep green broccoli; bright orange and yellow tomatoes; yellow, red, and orange peppers; creamy white cauliflower; vegetables the names of which I didn’t even know; orange and white Dungeness crabs. A feast for the senses.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the “cooking” gene — I have the I-love-to-set-the-pretty-table gene (which makes sense, given my love of visual design) — so I was content to simply enjoy the photographic opportunities all these colors and textures presented! And in a nod to setting a pretty table, the fresh flowers at the Market were exquisite!
Update 13 June 2014:
Interested in seeing what post-processing can do for a photo?
Visit After-Before Friday Week 4 to see a video highlighting the steps in Lightroom that transformed the Dungeness crab photo from “yikes” to final image.

Hi, Victoria! It was my first time and I could have spent days and days there. Truly, the colors, the people, the sights, the smells — even including the fish 🙂 — were phenomenal. Someday, I’d definitely like to go back.
One of my favorite places to visit!
