Grafitti Sampling

From an outing a few weeks ago at the rail yard in South Seattle.

SODO

Link light rail train heading into the SODO station, in a northerly direction. SODO translates to South of the Dome, a domed stadium that was demo’d years  ago to make way for the stadium that is home to the Seahawks and Sounders. Maybe it’s time to rename this light industrial area south of downtown Seattle?

Seattle Rail Yard

Version 2From the Lucille St. bridge, looking NW. Some of rail lines leading into Seattle. Some of the spurs off of these main lines are not in use today as industries have relocated outside the city limits or just closed down.

Along the Tracks (con’t.) Stay Humble

 

Walking the RR Tracks

22-DSC_4564

Location: Rail road tracks that run parallel to Airport Way So. in Georgetown , Seattle. There’s a blast of steam in the middle of the image coming from a  small industrial building. Downtown Seattle in the distance.

More of the graffiti to follow in future posts.

F Train to Coney Island

Washington Cemetery can be seen from this elevated section of the F Train, as well as the yard where subway cars are parked and serviced. Coney Island is home to very large apartment complexes, something you don’t usually see in photos of the summer retreat.

Coney Island/Stillwell Ave. Station

This station is the end of the F and G lines. Subway trains pull inside the large covered area and then proceed to head out in the opposite direction. The station actually faces Surf Ave. but for whatever reason, it is named Stillwell Ave. Station. I think the station got a major facelift a few years ago. Stillwell Ave. may be the street on the left ( as you look at this image) of the Station. I have entered and exited from both sides and they both work just fine, however more shops can be seen if you enter via Surf Ave. You can imagine the throngs of people heading to the beach in the summer, cascading out of the two exits. In October it is deserted, aside from a few odd travelers such as myself :-).

Under the Rail Bridge

At this spot on the Yakima River there is a rail bridge over a small stream that feeds into the river. A fun spot to explore, but not when a train is passing through.

Both Directions

Rail lines run right down the Yakima River Canyon. While I was there I actually did see a freight train go by right after I took these shots. there were quite a few fly fisherman along the river this day. The ones who wade into the river use these tracks to get to their favorite spots as there is not much space to walk along the river itself in places.

PS: Just a quick note. I will be in NYC/Brooklyn visiting our son and family from the 21st to 30th. Will try to post during that time, but am not sure how strong their Wi-Fi signal is.

Amtrak: Seattle to Portland

Thought I would post a few images, today and tomorrow, from the train ride I took a few weeks ago.  I have travelled the route, between Seattle and Portland, probably 50-60 times in the past 5 years. Most of the year the weather isn’t very cooperative. This particular trip, an early morning, was beautiful so I did remember to grab my camera and shoot through the window from my seat. These three shots are from the Tacoma area. Farm land just outside of Tacoma and the other two images are from the waterfront area just past the Tacoma Amtrak station.

Top photo from the 34th St. station ( Manhattan) and the lower image from the 4th Ave. station in Brooklyn after exiting the F train. This day there was a maintenance person washing the floors with a solution that must have been 50% bleach. Very clean and very smelly.
