Seattle Pillow Fight at Pike Place Market

The Seattle Pillow Fight club organized a flash mob pillow fight today at Pike Place Market.  I’ve always wanted to watch one of these in person, and I finally got my chance!

At 3:15pm today, the whistle blew, the crowd pulled out their pillows and for 3 minutes everyone had a giant pillow fight right in front of the world famous Pike Place Market.  While the instructions on the Seattle Pillow Fight website said “no feathers”, it seems that way too many people didn’t get the memo and brought feather stuffed pillows anyways.  I’m glad though, because it made for far better pictures 🙂

I started off with my 70-200, but quickly realized that it was way too long for how close I was to the crowd.  I quickly changed to my 10-22 wide-angle and fired off a ton of shots.  I have them up on Flickr but here is a preview:
