igers_seattle Hi everyone! @yomichaela here with today's #igers_seattle_tuesdaychallenge

Today’s Theme: #caughtgramming

One of my favorite things about the community is seeing how other people capture moments. It is really awesome to see people you’re shooting with or even just strangers walking down the street, stop, visualize and then capture an image. Today I would love to see your shots and stories of capturing others, or even yourself, during that moment!

I’ll start by sharing one of my own: This shot was taken during an overcast yet awesome day exploring the arboretum with a great group of people. We had so much fun walking the trails, hopping over tides that peaked the boardwalk and creating fun shots with each other along the way. I couldn’t help but snap this moment of @mrvalography and @bridgettesxo's son while they aligned their cameras together to capture images of the water in front of them.

CHALLENGE RULES

1. Photos must be posted AFTER this announcement and entered by 12:00PM [noon] PST tomorrow.

2. Top 4 pics will be posted here tomorrow after the challenge closes.

3. Pics must be taken in the Pacific Northwest.

4. Tag your photo(s) with #Igers_Seattle_Tuesdaychallenge & #Igers_Seattle.

5. Most of all, have fun! Michaela @yomichaela
