America - Seattle, Rochester and New York Snapshots

I wrestled with this for a while.

Now that I'm home, do I go right back to the beginning of my America trip and start writing about LA? Or seeing as I've done snapshots of all the other cities, should I continue to do the same for Seattle, Rochester and New York?

It may sound a bit silly, but I felt like I didn't want to neglect the last three cities, because they were all wonderful places to visit as well, but just had the unfortunate timing of being visited when I was most busy! 

So before I turn back the clock and get back to LA, to retelling my adventures in a little more detail, I thought I would just share a couple of pictures from the last couple of cities on our trip, so you have a taste of what's coming...!

Seattle. A little rough around the edges, but still full of charm. I love your market and that you gave Brad one of the best latte's he had in America (definitely not at Starbucks).

Rochester is a quiet little spot, but was the perfect place to recharge a little bit while Brad attended his conference. The home of the man who created Kodak is really a sight to behold.

Oh and we had some serious ribs.

What can one say about New York? She's a sprawling metropolis, filled with buzz, excitement, things to do, lots of blocks to walk. I found it interesting that I really didn't get to hit up as many eating spots as I wanted to, because our itinerary revolved mostly around fitting in all the typical touristy things.

But I'm really not complaining. I love you.

  1. Love the snapshots, definitely looking forward to more detail ... it all looks very intriguing.

  2. Agreed with Keiren....always love your photographic story.

  3. Nice shots, it paints a picture of the fun you've had! And I am most intrigued by that creamy green thing in the little square glass...
