My World - Tacoma

This is my first time to participate in the 'My World' Tuesday. Since I gave up the world of blogging as I knew it, and am now only focused on photography (a HUGE part of my life), by giving up the chatty blog it has allowed me to actually go out and have FUN with the camera.

This particular photo was taken from downtown Tacoma a few days ago. While Tacoma isn't a tourist destination like Seattle, I feel it has some very worthy qualities that get overlooked. My hope is to share some of the quirks and beauty of Tacoma with you over the weeks/months ahead.

What appealed to me was the view of our majestic MT Rainier and the bridge off to the left, all this from a downtown location. .

  4. Welcome to MY World. That mountain has no bad angles. It's always beautiful whatever angle it's snapped from.
