Keystone Korner, in San Francisco, was a jazz and blues club in the late 60’s till1983. It apparently moved to Baltimore in the 80’s, which seems weird. I was only 18 at the time this photo was taken so would not have been allowed in to listen. There is some disinformation online that the club didn’t open till 1972. I didn’t time travel to the future 2 years when I took this photo, so I’m convinced it opened in the 60’s. On the bill when I took this photo ( on a very cheap camera and scanned in to an iMac) is Boz Scaggs and Benny Cecil and the Snakes (couldn’t find anything online about Benny on multiple search engines).
Looking southward along SR99 along the waterfront in Seattle. The Wheel, a few piers and CenturyLink Field in the background. Just behind CenturyLink Field is Mt. Rainier.
There was some sort of a commercial film shoot going on in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Quite an entourage of catering and equipment trucks. The Audi was parked on the set, but I have no idea how it may fit in with the shoot. I guess it was more interesting to look at than the hordes of people on the set milling about, seemingly doing nothing other than talking and eating.
Located on Alberta St., NE Portland. I have walked by this shop numerous times in the past 7 years and always just look in from the sidewalk. This day there was an employee working at the very back of the shop who saw me and waved me in. He was insistent, so I relented and went inside. He was working by himself as the owner was in Texas picking up another car to work on for a customer. He told me all about the shop and how he ended up working there three years ago. The shop does not advertise at all yet it gets business from all over the world. People ship their vehicles to the shop in crates, etc. The work they do is just amazing. The green Mercedes was my favorite this day. If you look behind the Mercedes you can see ( barely) a toddler in a stroller. That is our grandson, Adam, who is 2 1/2 yo. He was very patient with me as I conversed with the employee. The blue VW Bug is actually a light table of sorts that was made using a VW Bug that was sliced in half. Pretty amazing!! Most of the cars they work on seem to be older vehicles that need restoration and lots of TLC. The blue hot rod was under a ‘blanket’ that was removed just so I could take a few photos.
