A few years ago the Pike Place Market celebrated its 100th anniversary. One of the more interesting events surrounding this occasion was called Pigs on Parade. Various sculpted pigs were given out to various artists to decorate/paint as they wished. The Pigs would then be placed at various locations in downtown Seattle. I went around one day and photographed as many as I could find in the time frame I had given myself. So, over the next couple of weeks I will be posting those photos. The Golden pig, in this post, was stationed on top of a building in the Market itself.
Alameda St., in NE Portland, is a pretty posh neighborhood. I guess posh does not exclude being a bit different? The entrance door reminds me of a checker board. I am not sure why someone would place a life-size replica of a jockey on their property.
Piglet on a roof on Alameda St., Portland, Oregon. I’m not sure what, if any, is the significance of a cement piglet on one’s roof, but there you have it.
