I grew up in the plains of North Cenral Montana and recently went back for a family reunion. My goal was to try to photograph that immense sky that I took for granted as a kid. Wouldn't you know it, it rained almost the whole time, but I was able to get a few shots on the first day before the clouds got too thick.
There are a couple of unique parks around that don't quite fit under the other categories so I'm grouping these together under Unique Parks. They include the Railroad Museum at Snoqualmie, Gasworks Park, and Golden Gardens Park in Seattle.
The Pacific Northwest has some beautiful options for rural settings. Ruran settings include lots of greenery, rustic fences, maybe an old barn or suspension bridge.
In a surburban setting, architectural elements play a big part. Repetition, sculpture, bricks are all a part of the suburbs, along with the occasional oasis of nature. Bellevue downtown park and college campuses are great places for suburban settings.
In Urban, big city life is portrayed. Streets, maybe a little grunge, definitely lots of textures. Downtown Seattle around the market or around the Seattle Center, and downtown Bellevue are great places for an urban setting.
