The Northwest African American Museum is in the Central District of Seattle, in the old Colman school. The museum has a nice open layout….feels very spacious, but not in a sterile, uninviting way. There are permanent as well as temporary exhibits (photos of James Baldwin in Turkey when I visited), a gift shop, a library and geneaology research center…..as well as plenty of rooms/artist studio space for community events. If you have not made it out to NAAM, do it now! It’s an especially good rainy day activity – – I can vouch for that!

Dancing @ Dusk – Summers in Seattle

Posted in Dancing, Events, Photography, Seattle, Street Photography with tags , , , , on August 16, 2013 by jennytucker

Dancing @ Dusk is a really cool summer event hosted by Seattle Parks & Recreation – every Tuesday evening – dancing instruction by professional dancers, followed by open dance until the sun goes down. There were lots of smiles at this event, and it was good to see strangers interacting in such an intimate way with each other in downtown Seattle.

A few of my portrait shots of the Elliott/Denton family have been published in the Huffington Post. Although family portraits are not the majority of my photographic work, I so enjoy spending time with loving families…and always strive to make sure that love shows through in my photos.
