First time viewing this impressive collection, and I must say...

Seattle, home to Seattle's Best, Starbucks, and the Space Needle, has so much more to offer than meets one's eye. The skyline looks fascinating from a distance, especially from Puget Sound; the diverse neighborhoods provide variety and cultural harmony, especially those located on the hills (reminds me of San Francisco in many ways); and with a lot of open spaces, it seems to me that people head out there a lot, chit-chat and have coffee with their neighbors, and enjoy the rich, diverse scenery the city has to offer. Yes, I can see quite a bit of freeways, but the city in itself is lively... I truly have plans to visit it soon by car! And the University of Washington has a lot of wonderful structures too, in which I notice a rich diversity of architectural designs and motifs that reflect the school's character and charm.

Excellent showcases, my friend! I'll come back to your collection more often!

Most of the places in the pictures are located on Central Way, Kirkland Avenue and Lake Washington Blvd

As our suburban nodes go, Kirkland might be our nicest, though it's not terribly large. The location is idyllic.

I must say, Kirkland reminds me of a community that was planned to become a transit-oriented development (TOD), in which the mid-rise structures have a great mix of residential units on the upper floors and commercial shops and offices on the lower floors. I mean, observing those images, I can truly see how well-planned that community is, in which I can see myself walking around town more often in that environment (even biking) because the density found in that community makes me want to mingle more with my neighbors and make friends in the progress. Even though I don't see a bus stop, I suspect that there would be at least services from either King County Metro or Sound Transit that serves that neighborhood often because it seems to be a hip and vibrant community that deserves good transit service and connectivity.

Juanita Beach, on the other hand, looks pretty idyllic indeed, with a clean shoreline, lots of families hanging out, and a good mix of medium-density apartments and low-density residential homes. I could also see myself living in that community, given its distance to the beach, but I can truly see myself more living in Kirkland in this case.

Splendid snaps again, my friend!

This is the transit center in this area. I just didn't take photos of it. I can see on the map that the bus stops are mainly on 3rd St.
