Ballard Locks in Seattle – Photo Wednesday

Last weekend, I joined a dozen Canadians who went to Seattle, to attend the Surface Design Association Symposium, “Surface Matters“. It was a wonderful weekend, very inspiring.

On Sunday, the Symposium planners held an exhibition and studio tour at the Ballard Works studios and area. It was a wonderful chance to explore the Ballard area on foot.

While wandering in the neighbourhood, I came to the Ballard Locks and Dam. Above, a sculpture located above the fish ladder (click here for the video of salmon swimming through) which is built in the dam. Below, a street shot of the nearby café, which serves many treats, including very decent fish and chips. I really like Seattle!
