The Evergreen State
Of course my start with Washington is at Seattle to eat food.
the drive from oregon to washington was an extremely long drive… i drove on highway 97 through yakima and snowqualmie and let me tell u about yakima.
i kind of felt like i was in danger in yakima but only because i got a sense that there was a high drug usage in the city….. BUT i could be wrong but i could also be right… but it was also like 6pm and the sun was in my eye and i got honked at for being a slow driver in the sun.
in any case we’ll move into seattle.
the morning after arriving at 10pm, i went to the wandering goose and had a chicken and biscuit sandwich with a beets smoothie. it was really good
and then it was going to seattle public market aka Pikes Place Market.
its actually cooler than i expected it to be even though it was heavily tourist based.
every space in pikes place seemed to have its own characteristics
i swear to god this was the most novelty thing ever but it was the most coolest thing ever rofl
beechers is cool
le panier is cool
and then we have this fucking thing.
like wtf is a pingpong table doing in the middle of the pier.
that bucket u see underneath the table also has pingpong balls but it has a ton of trash also.
i have no idea man.
cool seattle landscape~
and then the next day
went to the commons and had lunch and the most delicious combination of coffee and cinnamon rolls
omg look at that deliciousness..
^ tahts sam
and then we went to snowqualmie. and this waterfall is fkin cool compared to fkin multnomah and that god damn tarp
holy balls man im mad about that.
people were looking at me weird while i was setting up my 4×5 and they thought i was a weird photographer using some hipster ass camera wtf…
and some of the piping they use to transport water up to snowqualmie falls
and then it was onto rattlesnake lake.
ok let me explain this photo right here.
Lets just talk about how perfect the weather is for a moment. it was FIGURATIVELY raining torrental showers right before but while i was parking, there seemed to be no rain happening!
and suddenly mother nature or god or jesus or budda or whoever just decided to open up the skies to let the sun through omg
the water was crystal clear, shining turquoise, and the fog decided to roll through the trees. this was the decisive moment. THIS WAS IT THIS IS THE ONE.
naturally, i took the photo and moved on with my life.
what the clouds looked like with fog(or steam) flying through
and then it was time 4 dinner. suddenly oysters!
the place was called the walrus and the carpenter and it was amazingly delicious but not satisfying enough. i ate with @estherkiu again because sam didnt like oysters and after this we went to thai tom because we werent full and then we went to molly moon’s cuz i wanted ice cream.
and this was the 2nd ice cream place i went to.
i didnt really think mollymoons was that good but then again i was so extremely stuffed so maybe it was not the best time to gauge but molly moon was OK at best.
but i did taste strawberry balsamic. and it was extremely creamy… maybe because its molly MOOn’s (the puns~)
also i did notice the dintaifung next to mollymoons and now i have even more reason to go back to seattle and that mollymoons………………………
and then it was to the skillet with @codyhanson_
chicken & waffleezzezeezee yammmz
victrola coffee labs
cool coffee place
coolest workspace evrerrrrrrrrr
its THESE lightbulbs that are ultra cool.
and then it was the end of capitol hill and also the end of fun.
BECAUSE ITS TIME TO GO TOWARDS DESTINY
its time to fkin search for bridges.
#thatNWlog. look it up on instagram.
AND HERE WE GO
the vision taker
THROUGH THE GLASS OF THE 4X5

THIS MOTHERFKIN COUPLE
OK TEAM LETS TALK ABOUT THIS FKIN COUPLE IN THE ABOVE PICTURE
so this is a “public place” and there are going to be people walking and doing stuff on the bridge
ok i get that.
im waiting for people to clear and i have my camera set up and im talking with @connorsurdi about how great this place is and what my photo is going to look like…
and then theres this couple thats next to us eating food. they can obviously hear me because theyre only like 10ft away from us eating their lunch.
the bridge clears up and im getting my film out to shoot and ready to click the button BUT THEN
THIS COUPLE DECIDES TO SAY LUNCH IS OVER, TIMES UP. LETS DO THIS
and they decide to go out onto the bridge after hearing that i only need like 1 minute to shoot and then the bridge is free.
holy goddamn dude like y u haf2 do dis 2 me.
they literally sit on the bridge FIRST ON THE RIGHT SIDE making out, cuddling, taking pictures, goofing off, AND THEN THE HAVE THE NERVE TO DO THE SAME EXACT SHIT ON THE OTHER FUCKING SIDE
like y0 br0, just fucking confess ur love to this qurl and propose because it seems like ur going to put a ring on it.
damn dude.. i was mad because honestly, this couple was sitting on the bridge for almost an hour.
30 mins on 1 side, 30 mins on the other.
and they left their trash from their lunchwhatever.
i hope they read this post and send me some hate mail because i will gladly take ur hatemail.
