Pike place public market on a sunny summer day

12 x 18 ink 12:20 pm
Enjoyed the large summer crowd of tourist and locals.  They were pouring into the historic market saved by local architect Victor Steinbrueck.   The market was slated for demolition and he had the vision to preserve the lively core of the city.

Mcmenamin's Bar and Pub

Mcmenamin's Bar & Pub in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA

As we crack the front door, the smell of ketchup and hops rule the air.  We enter into an eclectic bar with light fixtures from every period and an industrial character that keeps your eyes moving in every direction.  This would probably be an interior designer’s nightmare, but it’s like entering into a hoarder’s heaven.  We sit down and enjoy salty goodness of tator tots and a cold pint of the slightly sweet ruby red beer.  The couples behind us are indulging in conversation and the men at the bar sit staring into the rows of attractive liquor.  The symbol of the old Rainier brewery and the sign “This is OUR home” remind me of why I love Seattle.  There is nothing like a cold brew on a rainy day. 12/27/11

Bauhaus Coffee House

Bauhaus Coffee House in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.

Sitting here drinking my coffee with my beautiful wife, I watch the sunlight hit the books on the wall.  The wonderfully brewed coffee steams through the haze of the sun.  I contemplate borrowing one of the books on the wall, but they seem trapped unlike a library book that is free to roam.  There are excellent people here.  A gentleman sits reading a large book, larger than I've ever read.  It's probably a Tolstoy book.  He looks like he's been through a lot, like a fisherman on a large Alaskan troller.  He's been wind tossed with 30 foot waves battering his beard.  It's all but white now.  A tall girl chats with her Asian boyfriend and then gets up to go to the restroom.  As she passes I notice that she's a skinny man.  A lady sneaks in to catch a breath from the cold that has arrived in Seattle.  She seems to have slept on the street all day and needs to thaw her bones from the cold like the chicken you pull out from the freezer before dinner.  She is immediately noticed and is kicked out for not buying a coffee.  Another walks in, dressed like James Dean and sits down waiting for something.  He pulls out his Iphone like a comb.  He waits alone with no coffee.  12/26/11
