Salmon Under Seattle's Aurora Bridge

Actually, make that a grey whale, a three-masted tall ship, and some salmon against the sun and sky beneath the Aurora Avenue (George Washington) Bridge in the Fremont district. I took this shot of a whimsical handcrafted fence at History House of Greater Seattle, whose motto is " giving every neighborhood a place to tell their story." You will find the unusual and unique on display, and all of it really interesting. For instance, you can learn about one of those 50's roadside attractions called Hat and Boots that has distinguished one south Seattle neighborhood, which, like Fremont, is also known for its artistic community.

Kim, you rock! Did you notice we take the same kinds of photos of the same kinds of things in this city? You have real talent. In fact, there only seems to be a couple differences between your blog and mine; One, your photos are are better, and two, your editorial is too.

Auckland has something like that on the side of some of the new parts of the freeway. But not here, sadly. It's very attractive!
