A friend of mine, Nona who I met at a photography workshop
with Tony Sweet last fall, headed out to visit Seattle last week.
We met up with another of Nona's friends and wandered over
to Discovery Park looking for some sunset photo opportunities
overlooking the Puget Sound.
Discovery Park is right smack dab in the middle of Magnolia, no
more than a ten-minute drive from where I live in Queen Anne.
Exotic it is not.
That does not mean that there are no photo opportunities there, of course;
you just have to learn to have new eyes.
