Explore 9th & 9th with Me (Photo Tour)
Are there parts of SLC you haven't seen before? I have to admit, there's a lot I haven't seen.
Recently, I put 3 of my favorite things together:
1. My camera
3. Seeing new things.
It's so awesome when that happens! My camera helps me spot overlooked treasures. Going for a walk and I'll admit, being alone, helps my sanity. Seeing new things feeds my adventurous soul.
I love how things look through a camera lens. It's a completely different vantage point. I used to tag along with my husband when he would travel to NYC for work. And while he spent the day in the office, I wandered. My camera and I covered some serious territory. NYC is my FAVORITE! But I'm not heading that direction any time soon, so I decided it's time for me to wander SLC instead. I'm making it my new favorite. There is a lot going on in good 'ol SLC and I haven't been paying much attention to it. It's time for me to get caught up in my own community. I'm taking you with me!
I'm starting a new segment here on PRIME. I can't wait! It's a photo tour series. I am going to take you on a walk around the various blocks of SLC and its surrounding communities. Maybe you're like me and you don't get out much and would appreciate a little education, or maybe you do get out but it's usually to the soccer field or to your child's school, or the mailbox. (Or... maybe you're Joe-get-out-and-see-everything and if that's the case, let me know where my soul should wander next. :)
Alright. My first stop was 9th and 9th. That is 9th South and 9th East. When I first pulled up, I stopped at a red light and the car/thing in front of me (that looked more like half a golf cart) had been dressed as a giant stuffed dog. It had floppy ears and everything. It motored around the street with passengers who seemed to have no care in the world. I knew when I saw that, I was going to enjoy this little jaunt. My camera and I had a good time checking out some new scenery.

What is there to do at 9th and 9th?
EAT! STROLL! SHOP!
It's got hip shops, restaurants, art and a funky feel to it. Craving Thai and Gelato? Want to do Pilates? Why not head there and try something new. I loved the vibe and the unique elements that separated this street from others. It reminded me of a mini Greenwich Village. My love tank was full thanks to an afternoon of new sights.
