Cold Lamping

Seems like a good day for a general assortment of recent photos as we get back into the swing of things. Did I mention that it snowed here? When I was a kid it used to snow a lot, because the Northwest was in the middle of one of its periodical extended cold snaps. That one ended in 1982 or something. I wonder if we're headed into another one because it is cold balls out there right now. Very pretty, and I like the cold, so I don't care. Favorite weather: sunny and cold. But enough blather, on to the photos.

One of many cool old buildings in Anacortes. We just stopped through quickly on our way back from Whidbey Island, but I'm looking forward to spending more time there – it seems like there's a lot of interesting stuff going on, visually and musically.

For example:
Mount Eerie w/ Julie Doiron & Fred Squire
Lost Wisdom mp3
[you buy now]

And I found this several years ago, kind of fresh:
Anacortes High School Marching Band (1973) Corazon mp3

The Lusty Lady, a Seattle landmark. This was taken right after Election Day, but the Electoral College actually casts its votes today.

Speaking of which – I like this photo from November 5th, when Emily and I went to the Five Spot for a pancake lunch. Call me simple but it's still one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle or anywhere.

The Grey Art Gallery has an interesting show up right now – this piece is by Laura C. Wright.


A good paste-up under the viaduct downtown.

My friend Jason wanted me to take this picture, don't blame me.

I walk by that paste-up several times daily and I never tire of it.

Someone actually took the time to write "Spring Break" and draw a picture of

I'll show Josh and he'll totally laugh.
