Fremont Solstice

Sometimes, the city of Seattle makes me truly like her…

If I could only pick one nice thing to say about this city, it’s that the freedom of expression here is insurmountable… which is a good thing. Especially at a time when it seems like our country is going backwards in its views and actions… that we haven’t really evolved as much as we previously thought.

Granted, Seattle has its problems as do so many other cities in the United States. But, with so much hate that runs rampant throughout our great country, it’s refreshing to see Seattleites bare it all, so to speak, and join together in a celebration of not only the beginning of summer but of love, fun, and freedom… to be who we are and to be who we want to be.

Isn’t that what America should be all about?

All of these images are from the Fremont Solstice Cyclists ride this year before the beginning of the Fremont Solstice parade.

These aren’t the greatest of images, but I was a little off my game here. I was just enjoying seeing all the creativity from my cramped spot on the sidewalk and being a photographer noob… snapping at will without paying much attention to exposure and focus. Sometimes, it’s better to enjoy the moment than to focus so much effort into getting that perfect shot, ya know?

Good times, Seattle. ♥

My slightly conservative hubs ;) and I will paint up and join the ride next summer!
