The junction of Steep Street and Trenchard Street, Bristol, 1866. John Hill Morgan (b 1833), platinum print. This view was recorded five years before Steep Street, curving away to the left, was demolished and replaced by a realigned road, Colston Street. Steep Street existed in the medieval period when it was the main road from the centre of Bristol to Gloucester.
The more often we see the things around us, even the beautiful and wonderful things, the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds, even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. Never lose an opportunity of seeing something beautiful, for beauty is nature's handwriting. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams! Be Thankful. #BeBompu
A number of state-run commuter ferries traverse the Puget Sound, hopping between the main port of Seattle and those on the various islands (Bainbridge, San Juan, and Lummi among them). Regardless of which path you take, you’ll have a prime vantage point from which to enjoy the skyline (Space Needle included) and majestic Mt. Rainier. Once you get out on the water, the view is pure Pacific Northwest: lush greenery and, if you’re lucky, an orca or two.
