"Summer at Sam" is a project that started in1996 where it began by cleaning up 120,000 tons of contaminated soil of waterfront property, transforming it into a beautiful landscape with thousands of native plants and trees, along with 25 permanent sculptures.
This area is now known as the Olympic Sculpture Park. Through the years, hundreds of thousands of people have attended innovative free programs at the park, and this year I was able to attend one of the events. It's always a pleasure to see so many people gathering around to watch a dance event, as it's normally an expense most can't afford, or at a distance to far to travel. Dance should be accessible for everyone.
At this event I met a lovely lady named Priya, who has a passion for dance photography. On my last day I woke up extremely early after many late mornings, and we went down to take some photos on this beautiful beach location just as the sun came up.
