Reflecting On Seattle
Reflecting On Seattle
By:, Categories: Words & Images, 1 comment



February was among the wettest on record with 6.11″ in Seattle. March did it one better and smashed the all time rain record with a whopping 9.44 inches. While April didn’t quite make those lofty heights (11th wettest on record), when combined with the soggy February and March, they make quite the rain trio.


It’s officially now the wettest February-to-April on record in Seattle. And with all that rain, what do you do? Well, for most photographers, you just hang around in coffee shops waiting for the sun to come back out, and then seek out all those wonderful big puddles for a cornucopia of reflection photos.


One person I know who will be in his element in all this rain is Scott Cahill Rude of Reflecting On Seattle at Pike Place Market. Amazingly armed with just a simple Olympus Cameida digital point-and-shoot camera that has to be almost 10 years old, he offers a uniquely creative perspective of the city through puddle, water, and light reflections.


And if it’s puddle reflection you are after in Seattle, then there’s always the omnipresent Space Needle to help you out.
