Seattle Trip

Here are some pictures from out trip to Seattle and Port Townsend. These photos were taken by Chad and myself with the Toy Camera App on our iPhones. These first ones are day one of our trip, taking the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. It was wonderfully moody and misty. Being in Bainbridge Island in October was like being in the most nostalgic memory of Halloween you have. Fall leaves were bursting with color, pumpkins at every stoop, and kiddos playing in the leaves. Wetness and the rustle of leaves filled the day.

The next day we headed to Port Townsend where JournalFest was held. Another picturesque seaside town will all my favorite things, good seafood, shops, and an old downtown very much like the one I always dream of living in.

After JournalFest we spent a few days in Seattle. We enjoyed the typical things like salmon and clam chowder at the market, ferry boats, just walking around town. My favorite though was Gasworks Park. How did i not know this existed? The imagination runs wild in a place like this! Here you see me with my Diana mini. I am testing her out. She is great to travel with because she is so small and versatile, but we'll see how she compares to my trusty Diana+ once the pictures come back. More on a project involving my Diana and diana jr. coming soon. Stay tuned!


  1. Hi Jessie :-) Thank you for stopping by my Journalfest post on my blog! Loved the photos from Pt. Townsend and Seattle with the Diana mini. I had never heard of Lomography before the Fest, but now I'm quite curious about it - I look forward to seeing more of your works. I've put your blog on my listing of "Journal Festies Blogs" so I can keep up with your doings. Happy Journaling!

  2. I love your photos and the ethereal/vintage tone that they exude. Glad you enjoyed Seattle. You should come visit during the Fremont Solstice Parade (it ends right at Gasworks Park).
