11/17/09 - There Will Be Blood!

A water feature up on 5th Ave, apparently dyed red (or so one would hope).
*Coming actual camera

11/16/09 - 3rd Ave S

The wet ground and the variant light gave this walk to the train a decidedly warm feeling.

11/13/09 - Helpful Seattle Signs

Apparently on Yesler Way one must beware of people walking on ceilings with anti-gravity boots on......or something

11/8/09 - Snow by Day

On the way back we saw all the snow where we had run off the road the previous Friday. It looked winter-wonderland-esque so I guess it'll be an early or earlier ski season this winter perhaps.

11/7/09 - A river runs through it

Icicle Creek (I believe) runs through Leavenworth. An exquisite weekend in an awesome Bavarian town of Hats, Boots and Booze. Quite bantersome.

11/6/09 - Stevens Pass Shenanigans

After a low-impact life affirming skid off the road in the sudden snow over the pass en route to Leavenworth. (everyone and everything was fine!) I tried to take some pictures, but felt it was kind of a douchey thing to do while some mountain man was saving our asses and weekend so I tried to hide it.....led to poor, but somehow good picture. I like how the snowflakes turned out. Way to be, Tim! we owe ya one!

10/29/09 - Sounders v Houston

An epic night of playoff soccer, moving from our regular seats added novelty to the proceedings. I quite liked the amenities area and its views.
Since has been fail.

Running in the Rain

This morning (read afternoon) I awoke to a lethargic beginning (read middle) of the day. Watching the end of the unexpectedly sloppy and exciting Steelers-Vikings game brought an exciting beginning to the day. The two cheese bagels that followed were something of a downer (greasy stuff man!).

So to the shower! Almost convinced myself to forgo a run in favor of a nice warm shower and afternoon of relaxation. Mental toughness prevailed and I ran 3 miles, and was promptly rewarded with this trio of uplifting sings to charge my progress:

  1. The Who - Baba O'riley
  2. Flight of the Conchords - If that's what you're into
  3. Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
That was a most epic beginning to my run and a welcome substitute to attempting to run on the strength of singing in my head, and somewhat more sane feeling.

A weekend of victory, one of many lately......

10/24/09 - Beermat vs CD

Recovery day today, hence the homebody picture. But an enjoyable evening out at the Sounders regular season finale (not pictured). A 2-1 home win puts them in a good position in the playoff shake up and a continuation of winning ways gives hope.

10/23/09 - Showbox SoDo

A good night out, watched a friend of a friends band - the Invisible Giants. They were pretty good and the random and enjoyable night out before, during and after was a welcome exercise in excellence.

10/22/09 - Security?

Saw these two shifty looking high-vis vest wearers today on 3rd near the bus tunnel entrance.....needless to say they warped the world around them while I snapped a covert pic.

Muse of the Run: How awesome is it that someone figured out how to record sounds onto a cassette tape............yeah there's a simple explanation sure, but thinking about it in terms of your voice on a strip of material feeding through reels...brilliant!

10/18/09 - Haloween ON!

Sweet pumpkins carved by myself and Pete!!

10/09 - Hotel Seattle Library

You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave....

Thus ends my pretence of doing this daily. I'll still do it, but I feel less and less compelled to do it every day.

10/5/09 - Morning Commute

The ethereal beauty of the fall morning. The moon hasn't been chased from the scene and the sun is not quite en situe.....brilliant!

10/4/09 - Re-Flect-OR!

Hey, my faucet looked kinda shiny this evening. This keeps me ticking along nicely ;)

10/3/09 - Self Portrait

Is this arrogant or desperate*??? Who can say....I thought it looked funny enough.

*probably both

10/02/09 - Water Standpipe....

I thought these looked stylish, and there was an odd one out.

10/1/09 - The Courthouse (Now with vacant block adjacent!!)

One of the cooler looking buildings in downtown Seattle.....I kind of wish they'd do something with this empty lot.....but times are hard or something?

9/30/09 - Keyboard

Has unexpectedly become the linchpin of so many peoples lives.....

9/29/09 - Reflective Coffee Table

The title tells the story really...and its not the cleanest, but was making a neat effect.

9/28/09 - Time Passes On

And leaves behind those things that cannot last. They fall as the detritus of the universe. Into obscurity.

9/27/09 - Blue Sky...Reprise

Its becoming less and less common, but managed to grab a snap of blue sky!

9/26/09 - Pentax ME

Borrowing Kris' 35mm. Intending to play around with a diferent type of photography and perhaps get some practice in for a class I'm thinking of taking in Spring.

9/25/09 - Exquisite

Yeah, this was the commute home Friday....I'll probably never get tired of that!

9/24/09 - Tennis Courts

Went to pay pickleball this evening and for some reason these tennis courts just looked so pristine I had to get a shot of them.

9/23/09 - Oh My God! It's Full Of Stars!

Well not really.....its just the insisde of a pickle/whiffle ball people

9/22/09 - Columbian Oasis

Saw this nice looking mini-garden at the foot of the dark tower itself, 701 5th Avenue.

9/21/09 - Perspective

Sometimes it'll get ya!

9/20/09 - Of Course!

Everyone knows whose eyes these are....

9/19/09 - Sounders + Flags...

Good day at the Sounders, despite an aggravating tie. Flags (pictured) becoming a nuisance and bone of contention between normies and the supporters club. One issue making me lean towards changing my season ticket location. Looks cool in a picture though....

9/18/09 - I-CHI-RO!

Epic Mariner game, really stuck it to the Yankees, their loud-mouth fans and Pay-Roid (you heard me)

9/17/09 - Vitamin R

A beer on a Thursday evening.....aaaah!

9/16/09 - Money

Can be exchanged for goods and services.

9/15/09 - Seattle Muni Tower

Not an entirely intentional double day use of subject, but it looked so glisteny (sp) on this particular day

9/14/09 - The Cavern

For some reason, crossing Columbia at 5th on this day the Express Lane entrance looked decidedly cave-like and foreboding.....

9/13/09 - Chin Action....

These 'self-shots' are kind of lame....but this one was kinda by accident and is not too self-gratifying
