Mr. Punch. Seattle, WA, 2011

If you had the chance to stop by the Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, chances are you passed by this gentle soul.

"20,000 people have already walked by and into that party... You're one of only seven, to stop and simply say 'hello'. You're also the only one to offer to shake my hand. Thank you." - Mr. Punch 

His statement, really dug a hole in my heart, and made me think about how the acknowledgement by others can affect us. Often times, people are jaded to the power of a handshake, and how it can truly change a person's day. 

My good friend and recently published PDN photographer Jacob B Murphy, also encountered a situation where he made a positive impact. Check out his blog post here.

Columbia City Farmer's Market 

I spent yesterday following my friend through the Columbia City Farmer's Market.

Francis David is a full time night shift RN at a local hospital and a talented food blogger. In his spare time you'll find him browsing cookbooks at the bookstore, shopping for produce, cheese, and seafood at the Pike Place Market, visiting boutique butchers while picking out choice local meats, and of course cooking, eating, and trying out new restaurants. 

Having some culinary skill, it was a great to have a small peek at a food enthusiasts approach on acquiring the ideal cuisine.
