Rozella Building in White Center

Business was buzzing at Platinum Cuts and Cafe Rozella on a bright autumn afternoon in the historic Delridge Triangle area in the White Center neighborhood of West Seattle. White Center's population is working class and culturally diverse, a place where immigrants from many regions of the globe have come for jobs in agriculture, shipping, and aerospace and put down roots. You can read a bit of the neighborhood's history here, including how it got it's name from a coin toss between Mr. Green and Mr. White.

The few scattered leaves on the street makes it look like brick. Nice photo of the buildings topped with the fall colors. The place looks spruced up and owned by some with pride.

You have a way of making the most common of scenes look so inviting.

Talented is what you are!

Folksy photo with crisp colors; can almost feel the autumn air. The car's parked really close to the building; unusual for the US, I think. I enjoyed reading about the coin toss, and that Mr. Green didn't let his loss get him down, since he became the first president of the White Center Improvement Club.
