Seen on 1st and Madisson in Seattle

MMMMMMMMM..... Fat and Juicy

I was strolling by a shop window on First when I saw this.  I would want one of those if I have to eat hospital food again.

Seattle Fisherman's Terminal

Rope and Chain

A rose on a granite wall in memory of a lost fisherman.

Tattered flags on a ship in port at the terminal.

He caught the big one.

When I was in the hospital I got addicted to the show Deadliest Catch on The Discovery Channel.   Their ships dock in Seattle on their off season.  I can't imagine freezing my fool ass off for 12 to 16 hours a day hauling in crab.  So many dangers to watch out for like falling overboard or get hit by by crab pots.  Click this to see the show .

Animals in North Seattle

Lucy on bus 358,

metal rabbits in a wooden hutch

And a salmon swimming up steam.

My theme of the day is animals in North Seattle.  My favorite sighting was the metal rabbits in a wooden hutch at Sky Nursery.  I thought it clever to put them together like a family.  If I had the money and a house, I'd buy them all for my back yard.

Seattle Buskers

Iron Man? or maybe Gold Man?

The Bronze Lady
I have no idea what would happen 
if you threw money in her vase.

2 Guitars and 2 Hula Hoops Man

People I saw in Seattle

Bob Marley

Chief Seattle and a Bum

These people I saw in an area near the Space Needle.  I love Belltown, there is so much to photograph.

Lake Forrest Park

Third Place Books food court

My new favorite book store, Third Place Books in Lake Forrest Park.  It has new and used books, and they will buy your books too.  I like the place because it has wide aisles comfortable seating and a large selection.

Pissing down rain, all day, every day, enough water to drive a person insane.  We had a 2 hour sun break yesterday before it started pissing down rain again.

Seattle Center

Turtles at the Science Center

In the Butterfly House

Reflection of the Needle on the EMP

I had a wonderful day at the Seattle Center with my close friend Donna. We spent hours in the Butterfly House.  Then we saw a movie called Tornado Alley.  I was not impressed, I've seen better documentaries on television.  We had lunch in the Center House.  The Center House is being gutted and updated so half the restaurants are closed.  We liked the Butterfly House so much we went in there twice.  Then we had a wild ride home on Metro's Access.

At the Skate Park

Seattle Centre Skate Park

Foot work

Its all about balance

Looks like one of those studies you do in art class
light and dark, lines, shading
This is my first try at desaturating
a heavily pixilated pictures

Fat Fish at Swanson's Nursery

Those kissable lips!
I pet the white fish on the head
and touched his cold wet lips
they were bonny and quite strong

Where is my fucking muffin?
These fat fish are not to be fed, but I snuck them a bit of muffin.
Then they stared at me until I dropped some more.

This fish had to weigh at least 4lbs and he wasn't the biggest fish in the pond.

I can't say a thing

If I say anything about this picture it will come off as being racist.  I think all illegal workers should be finger printed and DNA sampled into to a national data base so we know who is where.  I say bring back the chain gangs, if you are caught that is what you will be doing.  I got run over by an illegal high on cocaine who was also in possession of cocaine.  All he got was an easy 18 months and then deportation, big fucking deal!  I want some damn justice.  I'm not just picking on the Mexicans, I'm talking about all illegals.

Seattle's Spring is coming

I don't care what the weather man has said it won't snow here tomorrow!  I thought for sure I killed my pansies because the soil was frozen yesterday.

I love this shade of blue. I want to a a collection of abstract pansies, by just focusing on the parts of the flower.

The trees at Bitter Lake
I was tyring to give the illusion of a forrest
from a stand of 20 trees

Seattle: Needing to see a quack!

As I was leaving the hospital, a duck was trying to go in.  
Maybe the duck needed to see a Quack!

Here is her mate in the fountain

 She couldn't operate the handicap door!
Both ducks finally waddled off
to a large puddle in the shade.
