Skagit Valley Tulip Festival

This was my third visit to the Tulip Festival. I almost didn't make it this year. Luckily because the tulips bloomed later than usual, they extended the festival out another weekend. Unfortunately Saturday wasn't the greatest of weather. It was rainy and muddy, but managed to get some good shots anyway. I'm still amazed at how much my photography has improved over the last year. My shots from last year don't compare to those taken this year. I even took some film shots too but have to wait a little longer before I can post any of those.

I spent most of today in Seattle. Met up with a few people for brunch at Cyclopse in Belltown then met up with a few people and checked out the Ballard Market. I finished off my first roll of Black & White film. I haven't yet figured out what I'm going to do about developing. I don't know of any places on the east side that will develop it. I'm not sure how soon I'll have a dark room set up and I'm not sure when I'd be able to get to Seattle to drop off the film. Seems like most of the places in Seattle have normal business hours and aren't open on weekends which makes it a little difficult for me to get there.

After shooting the Ballard Market for a while, grabbed a Frap at Starbucks and relaxed in the sunshine for a couple hours while waiting for Iron Man to start. I've heard nothing but great things about the movie so I finally saw it and have to agree, it was a great movie and I'm glad I got to see it in a theater. Don't forget to stay till the end of the credits if you haven't seen it yet.
