So this is Seattle.

Dampness and sun in alternate moments, green woodlands fading into Autumn – the season of decay and change.

Take Gasworks Park, for example. A finger of green pointing across a lake at the high-rise city. But this is no ordinary green.

Instead of plants it is studded with plant: industrial decay become art, as the old gasworks slowly succumbs to time.

    I hope you’re getting some respite from the rain. When I was there last week it was very wet and windy … well, sorta like home, I guess.

    Make sure you have a couple in the Elysium – 13th and Pike.

    Went there with you_know_who when she was covering something or other out there.

    Wow! Thank you! It is amazing what a snap taken on a murky day on a 1.3 Olympus Camedia (our first digital camera) can do! We did not get to go up the mountain like you two did – I love the photos of Mary and the birds! 😉
