This kind of garb is not too common in Seattle. As far as dress is concerned, this is a fairly conservative place.
For a photographer like me, I prefer an every-day-is-a-party approach. If someone is dressed stylishly I’ll be there to capture the moment.
People who dress to kill almost never mind having their picture taken. The only caveat to asking is that you’ll get a posed shot.
Real street photography is spontaneous. The guy in the overcoat had no idea that I took his picture.
I prefer the later.by
