I have always loved walking through markets. Whether it has been in our world famous Pikes Place Market, the wet markets of the Philippines, or the street vendors in New York, NY. Markets come alive in their own ways, they at times overwhelm your senses, you can wander through the same place for years and still find something new each time you come for a visit.
Street performers are another reason I love markets because no matter where you are in the world, if there is a crowd then you can likely find someone being creative close by. The personality that you see in every street performer is fantastically unique. Each artist is amazing and the passion that they have is undeniable; I admire their effort, heart, and spirit so much.
Yesterday, while out at Pikes Place Market, my wife and I had the privilege to enjoy some of our cities talented creatives, and I hope you enjoy some shots I took while we were roaming around.
