Colorful history flashes out into the gathering dusk of the Pioneer Square neighborhood of downtown Seattle. State Hotel, the sign is all that is left of this relic from skid road in Pioneer Square; which was in its prime the core business district of Seattle in the late 1800s and early 1900s. These days Pioneer Square is experiencing a bit of a revival, but there is still a substantial homeless contingent which frequents the doorways, alleyways, parks and rescue missions in the district. I love Pioneer Square. I love the history, the beautiful brick buildings and roman arched windows and tree lined streets. Pioneer Square is one of my three favorite places in Seattle to photograph, the others are Fishermens’ Terminal in Ballard and Pike Place Market up in Belltown. Do you have ‘go to’ places that never cease to bring you enjoyment and opportunities for dramatic photos?
