Over one week, members of the Seattle community shared more than 500 photos on Instagram with the hashtag #SeattleWaterCity.
The Seattle Times asked readers to share their favorite rain and water photos in conjunction with the recent Pacific Northwest Magazine essay "We are water: In it, on it, around it all the time, it shapes us."
In this post, we share a handful of our favorite submissions. A big thanks to local photography communities #igers_seattle and #wearejuxt for participating and spreading the word. For more images, search #SeattleWaterCity on Instagram.
