Colorful Streetscape in U District


I came across this scene in the U District. The warm afternoon summer sun invited me to photograph this wall. Seattle has a very lively visual arts scene (click here for more info), from the sublime to the funky. There is a lot of expensive public art as well as "found art" like this to be seen in every neighborhood. I hope to feature all the flavors of it here in the months to come. Many neighborhoods feature Art Walks. Also, I invite you to check out the links to the right for Seattle artists Roger Feldman, Dale Chihuly, the Contemporary Art Quilt Association, and the Seattle Art Museum.

Re. Gov's Mansion: When you upload pics or edit, on the bottom of the screen, click on "Post and Comment Option" You can then post date. I do this, click draft and then wait for the correct date to post the photos. Last night I was having problems with the "door" (404 error) and posted Thur in error. Have to fix both of these. Clear?

It would be a high crime, not just a misdemeanour, to park in front of this superb wall! Excellent post!

Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments. I'm glad the colors were a bright spot for you.
Kate, thanks very much for the tip. I'm going to try it.
Edwin, I knew I was going to regret not buying a bit more flash memory. RAW takes up so much more memory than JPEG--but I'm going to try it this weekend. After seeing what you've been accomplishing, I've just gotta do it.
