Seattle Part 1: Photo Highlights

Wow, this has definitely been a crazy year! I'm going to attempt to get back on track with the blog... Lots to post so we'll see if I can make it happen.

Anyway, here's a start. I recently attended the 2011 NAEA Convention in Seattle, WA. Here's a recap of pictures of some of the sights I took in around the convention and in the city! Next post, I'll try to recap some of the many highlights that stood out to me.

  1. Great pix! Brought back memories of NAEA Chicago a while ago...Didn't you just LOVE the stuff by Nick Cave? I was fortunate to see an exhibit of his locally a year ago - I had to put my hands in my pockets because the urge to touch EVERYTHING was so strong!!

  2. Nick Cave blew me away!! It was definitely stimulus overload at some points, especially with the video clips mixed in... so much attention to detail and so well crafted. Wild stuff!!

  3. Great blog, I happened to come across it while checking my blog updates. Thanks for the convention pictures too! I live in NY and just wasn't able to make the cross-country trip.
