Yesterday, I spent the entire morning doing something that only I would do. Well, except for Google.
I video recorded the entirety of Downtown Seattle, including Pioneer Square, Belltown, Denny Triangle, Pike/Pine, First Hill, The Waterfront, and the International District.
I started on Alaskan Way and worked my way back and forth, up and down the avenues with my camera rolling. When I was done, I then slalomed the individual streets to capture every major intersection in Seattle’s core.

This morning, I made 1st Avenue and Pike Place:
