Welcome to attempts to capture the true essence of this mystical land through art, photos and the written word. It takes time to know this city. It's beauty will always be around us but there is something hidden. We just have to get up, leave our machines and start walking the parks, the neighborhoods, the public places rain or shine.

Seattle is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located in the state of Washington between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, about 96 miles (155 km) south of the Canada United States border in King County, of which it is the county seat. The Seattle area has been inhabited for at least 4,000 years, but European settlement began only in the mid-19th century. The first permanent white settlers, Arthur A. Denny and those subsequently known as the Denny party arrived November 13, 1851.
Early settlements in the area were called "New York-Alki" and "Duwamps". In 1853, Doc Maynard suggested that the main settlement be renamed "Seattle," an anglicized rendition of the name of Noah Sealth, the collective chief of the two indigenous tribes. As of 2006, the city had an estimated population of 582,174 and an estimated metropolitan area population of approximately 3.3 million.
