Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Black & White (Post Alley)

iPhone Monday 12-15-14

While the tourist attraction part of this stretch of Post Alley makes me squirm (chewing gum stuck to the walls) I can’t seem to stop looking for new photo opportunities each time I visit Seattle’s Pike Place Market.  Last Friday I was drawn to  the bright winter light and how each group of people spent so much time staring at old pieces of gum…

    1. Next time, Nancy! I’ll have another photo from this area at the end of the month when Meg’s Take 12 Project goes up at Move the Chair. She invited 12 photographers to each take 12 photos on 12/12 and the group exhibit will be posted on her blog 12/28. I’ll be sure to let everyone know when it’s ready. 🙂

  2. I recognized this photo right away, because I was in Seattle twice in November. Visited the “Gum Wall” in Post Alley both times. It looks better in black and white as you’ve shown it. 🙂


  3. what a great click. have heard much about this place, and am here frequently enough but have never found Post Alley. where is it in relation to the market? would love to see this one day, as gross as it is 🙂


    1. Post Alley runs diagonally through the area, Kris and this section is on the south side below market level. There is a flight of stairs close to the bronze pig, Rachel that will take you down to the ghost tour meeting place and gum wall.
