The One Place blog series is a collection of art that highlights a certain part of this planet we all call home. Whether it’s a city, state, country or maybe entire content, the objective is to showcase the place through images and art. So, even if you can’t ever travel there, at least you can enjoy the scenery as depicted by artists and photographers who have. This place:
Seattle is located in the upper Northwest corner of the US in the state of Washington. Not only is it home to Imagekind (boo yah!), it is also the birthplace of such notable companies as Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks, REI, and Nordstrom. Originally named after the Native American chief of the local Duwamish and Suquamish tribes, chief Sealth, Seattle is also known as the Evergreen State and Rain City for it’s over abundance of rain that produces the beautiful greenery and forests within the city and surrounding areas. Situated between two mountain ranges (Cascades to the East and Olympics to the West) it often feels as though we are a hidden (maybe forgotten!) city surrounded by trees and mountains. Regardless, the scenery alone provides for some fantastic artwork.
