Whenever we travel we like to design up a TEXTURES series post – they’re just quick snapshots of the color, texture and grit that make places unique and special. They’ve been a ton of fun because it’s easy to grab a few photos with a smart phone and it makes us think a bit differently about our surroundings. We haven’t done one on Seattle yet and we’re opening up the ‘Urban TEXTURES Seattle’ to BUILDblog fans. So here’s the deal:

1. Submit (2) photos that you think work well together and speak to the texture of Seattle.
2. The photos can be hot off the shelf or from that trip you took to Seattle 5 years ago.
3. Use an SLR, a smart phone, hell a pinhole box camera if you like.
4. The shots can be black & white or color but need to be at least 500 pixels wide and in .jpeg format (no larger than 1MB please).

Email both photos to info@buildllc.com by Monday August 2nd (5pm PST) and throw a word or two in the comments box to help us keep track of things. We’ll showcase the entries in an upcoming BUILDblog TEXTURES post with proper photo credits and shout-outs to your websites/blogs.
Team BUILD will pick a favorite and award the winner two club seats for the Seattle Sounders Futball Club vs. the Houston Dynamo on August 8th at Qwest field in Seattle (a $100 value).

So get those cameras out and cheers from team BUILD
