I’ve updated the Music Bar, on the bottom right hand column, to include the full EP, Inburst, by our son ( aka: Missing Vwls). His music can be found and purchased on Bandcamp.com. Years ago he was in an instrumental band in Seattle, WA called, Autofirelife.
Check it out!
Shameless plug! :-).
I posted the original color image of this sunflower recently. Thought I would post this version today.
I added a music bar to the front page of the blog. The song that is currently available was written and played by our son, who lives in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to being a musician/composer, he is a dad, works for Simon and Schuster full time, writes music reviews online and is currently finishing a book that will be published by Harper, Collins in Jan, 2018. Busy guy!
West Seattle actually had a working flour mill, Stone Ground Mills. The mill produced Stone Buhr Flour, which we have used for years. The mill* is located at 26th and Yancy St., adjacent to what is now Nucor Steel. This area is technically known as Youngstown ( or North Delridge Area). The Steel mill was originally named Bethlehem Steel, one of the many owned by this large corporation years and years ago. Nucor Steel produces mostly rebar these days.
Here is a link to a thread which has additional photos of Stone Ground Mill. Stone Buhr Flour is still a viable product, I think. I haven’t been by the site since I took these photos, but according to the link above, it was there in 2010, which is about when I was tramping around the site (probably before the year on the watermark). The building was in bad shape 7 years ago, so I would suspect it is either gone now or …….?
*The mill is now located in Kent, Washington, approximately 10 miles south of Seattle.
Over the past 10 years I have been photographing two Seattle neighborhoods, South Park and Georgetown. Both neighborhoods have been going through a lot of changes, but more so in the case of Georgetown. This wall is now gone.
The above brick wall was part of the massive. brick structure of the old Seattle Brewery. Today, this wall is gone. At the time I shot these images the walls were propped up or stabilized, on the back side, with large, steel rods or beams ( it wouldn’t take much of an earthquake to being them down). Arched windows, signage and other brick details are really cool and add so much character. Details, that today, would never even be a consideration in constructing a building, brick or otherwise.
My next posting will be of another old structure, Seattle Flour Company in West Seattle.
