9:30 PM Weekend Night

This was the relatively deserted late evening scene in downtown Ballard where we were heading to see a film at the Majestic Bay Theater, a purposefully small venue completely rebuilt about ten years ago on the site of the old Bay Theater which operated from 1915 to the 1990s. It is a popular draw for the nearby coffee houses and restaurants, but even those open looked three quarters empty. Still some folks out on a mild night, but not in the numbers we have usually seen there on a weekend night. We thought there would be more folks in the theater, too. Maybe a sign of the economic pinch?

Who knows? there were not any important date on TV or something like that? Downtown Madrid is crowed every weekend... and sometimes it isn't great at all...
Any way, great night shot!
Love your style, have a nice wwek!

This is a fantastic photo. Nice job getting foreground and background in great focus. My wife's family was born and raised in Ballard, and we still have a home there - although we have not been there for over 4 years, so this was a wonderful capture of life in Ballard. Thank you.
