Pike Place By Ava Rose, Sam henry, & Patience O'NeAl
April 21st, our freshman Photo 1 class took an Adobe funded field trip to Seattle, to the well known Pike Place Market. Our class focused on shooting the culture, foods, crafts, etc. Our group took pictures of the architecture, tourist attractions, and the Seattle culture.
Down in Pike Place, we have found that there are dozens of buskers playing music for the people. We talked to several buskers that enjoyed entertaining people, and usually there was a crowd around them. These talented artists keep the Seattle culture alive.
What we also visited is a popular landmark which is called the Gum Wall. The Gum Wall started out of boredom, from the visitors waiting in line for the theater. The attendants tried scraping the wall, but soon gave up. Some of the gum on the wall is made into symbols like hearts or peace signs.
On the alley way to the theater, we found lots of interesting drawings, and graffiti that was written on a wall. It was very colorful and fun to see different people express themselves. Downstairs in Pike Place, there is tons of pretty lights down the halls that made each store have a personality. Such as a comic book store, magic shop, or a candy store.
