    Folklife/SeattleCenter/grandaughter

    I took my 9 yr. old grandaughter to the annual Folklife festival at Seattle Center.
    Fortunatly we left before a shooting occured...the first in the 27 years of the festival.

    1. Enjoying a quiet moment
    2. People enjoying the fountain
    3. Isabelle using her phone camera,(she did that a lot)

    4 What's she looking at?
    5 Maybe this...Puget Sound and Olympics from Needle observation deck


    We had a good day and she is a very well behaved and polite young lady.

    Shots look good Frog. I never get tired of our scenery here in Wa.! The company that did some of the retrofitting of the fountain is where my Dad worked:-)

    Thanks for looking and commenting Lori and Jimmy.
    The shots arent't that great but about the best I could do in that midday light.

    Frog - I enjoyed viewing your images. They're very well done......sharp with great color - and interesting. You did a beautiful job with the portrait of your grandaughter. There must be a spot on the wall for that one. She is a beautiful young girl.

    First off your granddaughter looks like a real corker. Bet she was a lot of fun to be with. And I second what Jimmy said about your scenery in Washington, fabulous. Nice job, glad you had a great day and had a budding photographer with you to enjoy it.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Thanks all. I was paying more attention to her than the photography but have no regrets.

    Re: Folklife/SeattleCenter/grandaughter

    Nice pics Frog. I agree you done the very best out of the harsh light

    Well looks like she's picked up the passion for photography from you, even if it's only a phone camera it doesn't matter, maybe something to encourage, you never know Frog she might develop to be a top photographer.

    Thanks for sharing these pics.

    Looks like a nice time, Frog. i like the shot of her shooting the fountain with her cell phone camera. The scale is interesting.

    Love your shots Frog! Like Jimmy, I never get tired of seeing our great state.

    I think it's so cute you do things like this with your Grand-daughter. Great memories.

    Great pics Sr. Frog. Your grandaughter is very photogenic, and the scenery in #5 is just stunning. Looks like it was a great day.
