Pillow Fight

At the Pike Place Market today I stopped by a fresh fruit stand to get an apple and found out that a pillow fight was about to take place. This tidbit of info explained the overcrowded street.

But I wasn't quite sure when it was going to take place. I knew two things: I didn't want my family to get caught in the middle of it and I wanted to see how it would play out. After asking the person at the fruit stand for more info, I was told that there is someone that plans out random events like this.

As we were picking up our fish to leave, out from the crowd someone yelled, "pillowfight"! And the feathers flew. It caused quite a commotion.

I saw this a while back and just haven't gotten around to posting it... it is simply amazing.

The best part about this is that I remember this "Olan Mills" style of picture as an option for high school senior pictures. I opted for the outdoor stare into my future pose.

What is inspiring about these pictures?
• the clothing
• the pose
• the photography
• the emotion

I was ambitious this morning made pancakes for the kids. It was a relief that pancakes turned out great. I even made a couple Mickey Mouse pancakes.
