University Ave

Evening shoppers wait for traffic crossing University Ave. Many a student in many an era has walked through this scene. The U District was looking a little deserted this Thanksgiving weekend, but University of Washington students will be back in force Monday for the start of their last two weeks of classes and finals before the winter break. That route 30 Metro bus is taking riders south along the avenue which is decked with festive stars.

My sister is one of those students that stroll up and down The Ave. I went to SU, so I had Broadway. I love that bookstore in your shot!

Boy, did I spend a lot of time strolling the 'ave' when I was a teen-ager. MB

wow, the exposure here is stunning. You have the details in the darker areas without blowing out the sign or store fronts. Great job on this!

I thought traffic seemed a bit lighter than normal in other parts of town as well on Friday. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving :)

I like the name of that bookstore in the foreground. How cute! (Bookstores always catch my eye...)

I forgot to say that it also appears that the bus says "Seattle!" with an exclamation point. It makes me smile.
