Underground Seattle a little Urban Exploration to start the day
Underground Seattle is totally worth the trip, with 33 blocks of underground tunnels, ghosts, stories, and the amazing history that is Seattle, and you have to do it. Ok, yeah so I paid tourist prices, but if you hang back you can get some amazing shots of what it must have been like way back in the day. Exploring your city is always an interesting thing to do, underground Seattle fits that bill nicely.
I went down with my low light lens, set it on aperture priority of 2.8, and let the camera do the rest of the heavy lifting for me. I also hung back to make sure I was the last person in the tour group so I could get pictures without anyone else in them. Sadly there were no ghosts, but some very good moody pieces that show off just how amazing urban exploration can be. Urban exploration is something that photographers should do because it is fun, ok maybe not all, some really only seem to do landscape or sunsets and sun rises. Others do only models, but it is also very good to stretch yourself out a bit and do something unexpected or unusual.
I tend to take better pictures when I stretch myself to see what I can get away with. Of course I held up the tour group, but sometimes that is ok, especially if you let the tour operator know that you are going to be slow because you really want to get some pictures. Well worth taking a gander at if you find yourself in Seattle with a couple of hours to burn, nothing pressing, and you have your camera gear with you.
