Just the Right Angle

Squaring the Circle, 4 of 4, per flickr's squared circle and squareFormat groups.

 

I am the division between Old Ballard shops and the Ballard Sunday Farmers' Market, a reincarnation of the open market, old as humanity. The Ballard neighborhood of Seattle has been struggling with growth, density, tradition, etc., all the angst of better urbanity.

 

My Carl Zeiss lens anchors what could be called a circumspection; I wanted my fourth squaring of the circle to be Just the Right Angle.

 

The staked, glass globe, meant for a garden, is the division between lush, summer leaves OOF behind it and the world in front of it, recast sharply in its red.

 

My wife, Mango Power Girl and I have been big supporters of eating local foods and farmers' markets. In 2007, we ate a 100 Mile Diet for one month, and as you can see and read on her food blog we have enjoyed local foods only more since then. In 2008, we joined a broad coalition of environmental, family focused, and other citizen organizations to lobby the Washington State Legislature in favor of Farm to School laws -- and we won!

 

Our Eat Local Now! Dinner was April 29th, 2008, as @ www.eatlocalnow.org.
