|08:50 pm - Walkabout|
One thing WITL (now abandoned, like so many other projects) reminded me is how much I like walkabouts. Just taking the camera and my thoughts out for a walk.
Yesterday, I noticed a building on the other side of the bridge that's likely where my aunt worked for about 30 years or so. So, today I decided to walk over there and take it's picture. And whatever else I saw along the way that amused me.
No particular story here. And there's a picture of roadkill at the end.
US Plywood Corp
"Pattern" intrigues me. I'm glad to see these sort of photo-outings on display. I do far fewer of them nowadays with the combination of SLR and bicycle than with pocket camera and walking.
What made that scrape? It has such an art deco railroad engine feel to it.
I like this set. It fits together well.

The difference between these scenes and tourist brochure photos is more than striking. But Seattle looks like that, yep. The only thing that strikes me as weird is that bright sky.
In "Lonely" I had to tone it down quite a bit!
I like "Sidewalk Geometry" the best, but I also like the font (if that's the right word) of the US Plywood Corp sign. Was that a deco building?
It must have been. I like the font as well. I kind of wish I'd gone around to the back, or walked around a little bit more, but I was pushing it already as far as pretending not to realize I'd wandered onto private property.
Were you whistling innocently?
Yes. "While Strolling in the Park One Day", which is the ISO standard for innocent whistling. If you're a post-modern ironic hipster, you can whistle the finger-poppin' lounge Bobby Darinesque version.
I, however, can't.
