Our daughter’s birthday is June 3rd. Her middle name is Rose, as is her daughter’s middle name. Happy Birthday!

The Blue Moon

Went to the Blue Moon Tavern last Saturday night. Two local bands were having a record release party. Advertised as Seattle’s ” most infamous bar”. The list of literary figures that have spent time in the bar can be seen on this link. I like the one where Tom Robbins, the author, called Pablo Picasso from the bar and actually got through to him, but Mr. Picasso refused to accept the overseas phone charges. The murals in this post are on the west wall of the exterior of the bar and were taken with my iPhone.

HDRtist HDR - http://www.ohanaware.com/hdrtist/Taken a few years ago while I was visiting with my son and family. On the eve of the 10th anniversary of this photoblog I thought I would look back for a moment. This is a morning shot, with some fog in the background. The sidewalks were designed in another era, where there were fewer cars and more pedestrians.

Kitsch

I drive by this house from time to time to see the latest additions, It’s interesting that, as much stuff that is displayed, I’ve never seen any evidence of tampering or vandalism.

From my Neighborhood

One of the perks of living in the Arbor Heights area of West Seattle is the view of the Olympic Mountains.

Shy Hummingbird

I have a couple of hummingbird feeders just outside my backdoor. I can walk out and watch, without my camera, as the hummingbird partakes of the nectar I blend. If I bring my camera out and just wait, patiently, he/she will either not show up or hides on the backside of the feeder. You can just see his tail feathers in one of the images.

I’m determined to get a shot of this shy or perhaps, sly guy. He really does keep an eye on me while I’m watching him; he’ll stop drinking ( or whatever it is they do) and peek over at me. He’s really diligent about watching his surroundings.

 

How to Decorate your Electric Meter

Turning ‘found objects’ into questionable art via the light meter on our house. I have been working on this project for years, as you can tell by the care I took in placing the objects as well as the non-thematic nature of the piece.

Enjoy!

Touches of Art Deco

23-DSC_5365

Years ago, this was the Public Health Hospital on Beacon Hill, in Seattle. It has had many tenets since those days, when people without health insurance could go for medical care. For a few years it served as Amazon’s Headquarters. Now it is occupied by PacMed called Pacific Tower and is shared with Seattle Central Community College as a training facility.

If you look closely you can see touches of Art Deco in the building design. Considering what sort of design styles are used today. glass and steel monoliths, I find the look of this building amazing to view.

A Bit of Smokey, Seattle Haze

These were taken during one of the less-smokey days we had this summer. Still, the visibility is affected. The BC forest fires robbed us of many nice, summer days.
