A glimpse of Seattle

Today was my first full day in Seattle. I went to some conference sessions and spent a lot of my time preparing for a brief, preliminary job interview so I only snapped a few photos on my phone in between work stuff. Naturally for lunch, I head to Pike Place Market. I went to a chowder shop recommended by a friend and colleague and was not disappointed by my smoked salmon chowder. No pic of that; I was busy eating it al fresco in the 45º weather.

I wanted to just gawk and photograph the fruits and vegetables but restrained myself with one shot. I was handed slices of apple and pear to and from the chowder joint. If only my little hotel room had a kitchen.

This didn't photograph so well but I loved the procession of piggies on the roof of the market, decked out in pine garlands.
