BLOCK BY BLOCK: Queen Anne Avenue, Upper Queen Anne

Block by Block is a photo essay series meant to capture moments and moods in Seattle one city block at a time. I choose blocks at random while I’ll walking my dog or on my way somewhere–I want to capture normal, everyday things I see around the city and not go out of my way for anything special or touristy.

Between McGraw St. and Crockett St.

I love the charm of Queen Anne Hill, known for postcard-worthy skyline views and picturesque tree-lined streets with extravagant mansions. (I saw 7 BMWs and 2 Porsches in the 30 minutes I was up here poking around.)

While luxury cars may be commonplace, the neighborhood has a strong community atmosphere and plenty of locally-owned shops and restaurants. It’s warm and friendly–definitely not uptight. I don’t get up to Queen Anne as much as I used to when I lived and worked closer, and I miss wandering around.

I’m glad I had a moment to capture a little taste of late summer on this street. The weather is already cooling down here in Seattle and I can’t wait for fall!
