This lady was super cool about having her photo taken outside of Seattle Central College. She gave me her name and email on a piece of paper which I dropped someplace on my way back to the car. So not only am I the dummy who can’t hold a piece of paper, but I’m also a litterer. Ug… Nikon 800/Tamron 24-70. #nofilter #withmytamron #streetportrait #nikonnofilter #seattle #seattlecentralcollege #tamron #phlearn #wacom #capitolhill #capitolhillseattle #humansofseattle #blackandwhite #B&W #picoftheday #shotoftheday #photooftheday

After a few years of larger scale events in the city’s parks, Seattle is downsizing its Easter egg hunt efforts once again in 2018. Again there won’t be an egg hunt in Cal Anderson — and the Central District’s parks and community centers also won’t see the free egg hunts again this year.

The NW Museum of Legends and Lore will never completely leave Capitol Hill, it seems. Fresh off rejection by the City of Seattle for its permit for the annual Broadway Pride street festival, the museum’s directors are leading the charge targeting, of all things, the United Confederate Veterans Memorial in Capitol Hill’s Lake View Cemetery.

We found Ingrid while in the sun at Plymouth Pillars Park at the base of Capitol Hill. Ingrid, an apprentice at Damask Tattoo, decided to show Ink her back piece that she “gave free rein to the artist” to create. This isn’t Ingrid’s first work by Honest John at Slave to the Needle in Ballard. “HJ is one of my good friends and I look up to him a lot as a tattooer,” Ingrid said, “so I wanted to give him a big area as somebody that I trust. That in itself means a lot to me that he would take on that big of a project and it is my favorite tattoo because I actually planned it out. It’s nice to have something that’s so large and pieced together.”
