Santa Through the Nordstrom Window

Photo & Text Copyright 2006 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved including reproduction or republishing.

From the sidewalk outside Nordstrom one can view visitors through the window having their photos taken with Santa. Some Seattle families, like these beautiful children, wait in line for a long while each year for the chance to tell St. Nick their Christmas wishes.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Lenin

Photo & Text Copyright 2006 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved.

This controversial sculpture in the heart of the Fremont district is lighted every year during the holiday season. Here I show the star-topped head and back. An historically bloody figure encased in lights that form a Christmas tree with a star on top--certainly gives one pause to wonder. . .

Running through the fountain.

Long reaching shadow.

You may remember this. . .dog walkers from the shelter.

Probably my best. You may remember this one, too: Fluid Motion.

And here is Not So Fluid Motion. I wonder what the apprentice standing by was thinking?

What We Saw in the Window

Pete the Brittany took a great interest in this toddler's play with the kittens (available for adoption) in this store window. Pete stood on his hind legs with his front paws on the window ledge.

More Argonaut II, Seattle

Here's how she looks in the water. What a beaut!

This description lifted from The MERmade Mechcanic Quarterly: "Dave Walker currently owns the well-appointed Argonaut II, built in 1922 of cedar, teak, and fir. This beauty exhibits the luxury and grace of a bygone era, replete with fireplace and c. 1930s pump organ. A corporate yacht of her day as the Grete M, she went on to work for the Powell River Timber Company before becoming a deacon�s mission boat, hospital, and lifeline for Canada's upcoast communities as the Thomas Crosby IV, until sold into private ownership in the 1970s as the Argonaut II."

Morning Canal Traffic

Above them the I-5 traffic is racing, and on the canal the traffic is heavy this morning, too. Rowing is a major interest and sport here in Seattle. There are several private rowing clubs, public lessons and crew teams through the Y and other organizations, and schools such as the University of Washington and Seattle Pacific University have accomplished instructors and rowing teams. These two women can be pleased with their strength and fitness.
