On a recent trip through the Pacific North West of the United States I found I was starting to be dragged down by the dreary of grey, rainy sping days. What better excuse to indulge in one of my favorite passions?
These images were taken one day at a music and food event where people came out to celebrate in colours -even if the weather was not.
