My Seattle Walk About

And testing out my mobile connectivity ...

It was a foggy cold and grey day marked by a lack of color in the air

... but this girl let me snap her picture on the corner of 1st and Pike.

I got some Chia seeds from an apothecary shop in the underground.

I managed to snap a photo of some UFOs converging on Harbor Island

It looks like a supporting structure for a bridge or something.
It's a sculpture.   It sits on the end of a cool-de-sac overlooking a cliff on the bottom of which is the tourist area where they built the Ferris wheel.
Yep, that was my first inclination but I went for functionality.  It may be more interesting from another viewpoint in color, but I was hard for me to believe someone paid to have it there as a sculpture.


Well next time i go by there, i'll snap a picture of the dedication plaque and post it here.  I love it.  Witness how it strokes against the sky.
My first impression was that it was a bad attempt to sculpture something that looks like lightning .

← i wouldn’t rely on that sign

but maybe this from the web thecancan.com

Every Friday and Saturday night when the clock strikes twelve, it is time to gather beneath the sidewalks of normalcy and enter the dark, glittering underbelly of the Market. It’s time to peek under the infamous petticoats at Can Can and get a taste of Seattle’s hottest burlesque stars at The Midnight Show.
