Pike Place Market

When travelling to new cities apart from looking for skylines and architecture to photograph, markets can also be a great source of photography. Especially close ups of the traditional displays of fresh fruits and veg. Pike Place Market is a little different. I first saw the bright neon signs on my walk from the train station to my accommodation, noting that I had to come back at sunset with my tripod. Being on the waterfront in the heart of the city centre overlooking Elliott Bay it is very crowded. Thinking about coming back at dawn there would still be cars or vans parked in front of the sign unless I was very lucky. This photograph was taken about half an hour after the sun had set.
