The thing that stood out the most for me about signs (as you may be aware, one of my favorite photo subjects) in Seattle was all the neon. So many neon signs, you guys! I couldn’t believe it; I was in geeky neon sign heaven.
This (non neon) restroom sign. Because how often do you see them with men holding the babies?
This place! Hotel Hotel, in Fremont, kindly comped one private room for me and I am so thankful that I reached out to them! Look for my review of this great hostel at the end of the week!
And then we have the many neon signs within Pike Place Market (which, did you know, is not just one strip of shops or even just one building, but a whole district, as well as a nonprofit organization?)
The pink elephant car wash! I initially saw this one from the bus and craned my head around in awe, unable to get a good shot through the other riders and dirty windows and gray day.

And the last Seattle sign I captured, at SeaTac Airport just before my flight back to NY:
