Late Night Post Alley Inspection


Late Night Post Alley Inspection
Photo & Text Copyright 2009 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.
Late last Sunday night a couple of guys were carefully checking out the current state of the Market Theater Gum Wall in Post Alley. I had taken a couple of distance photos of them from the top of the alley, and then I slipped in a doorway and attempted to frame them looking across the alley through the arch. Then this other guy walked into the frame and made it all interesting. I got so excited I lost my steady. The other shots I got of just the two guys came out pretty sharply focused for a night time hand held shot, but I liked this one, warts and all. Other shots at More Seattle Stuff. Hope you are having a great Sunday!

Haven't seen your other shots, but this one is probably the most interesting. The 'casual passer-by' makes the photo.

Yes, this all comes together beautifully to elicit an emotional response from the viewer.

Interesting shot indeed - it has a gummed-up Edgar Allan Poe feel to it.

Wonderful picture and fascinating idea. Never heard of a gum wall. Sort of like a graffiti-allowed area but with saliva and Wrigley's. There's a nice night flavor to this. (Couldn't help myself.)

I was wondering if either you or Chuck were thinking of doing the Fremont statue of Lenin for red theme day on April 1 (why wasn't it May 1?). Probably gonna do a Commie thing myself.

Ahhh Kim, the decisive moment indeed. HCB is smiling down on you. Terrific shot.
