There’s no denying that Seattle’s unwavering beauty and eccentric quirks create the perfect recipe for impressive Instagram photo opportunities. From famous landmarks, to mouthwatering restaurants, to awe-inspiring public art, Seattle is a photographer’s dream come true! Whether you’re visiting the Emerald City for the first time or you’re a born-and-raised local, we’ve got the list for ultimate IG inspiration as a 10-part blog series!
Perched on Queen Anne Hill sits one of Seattle’s greatest panoramic views of the city: Kerry Park. The land was given to the city in 1927 by Mr. & Mrs. Albert Sperry Kerry Sr.—“so that all who stop here may enjoy this view.” As seen on TV shows like Frasier and Grey’s Anatomy, you can catch all-encompassing views of downtown Seattle, Elliot Bay, West Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and the ever-impressive Mount Rainier.
Few spots can compete with Kerry Park’s incredible sweeping views. Each day, professional and amateur photographers line the metal rails and concrete benches awaiting sunrise, sunset and everything in between—in hopes of capturing the perfect Seattle snapshot. Can you blame them?!
Kerry Park features a steel art installation called “Changing Form,” which has been in place since 1986. When you look (or take photos) through the structure, the Seattle skyline is perfectly framed by the elegant curves of the art piece.
