Pionees Square Station in downtown Seattle serves light rail trains and buses for the people to commute. The architectural design made it look futuristic -- reminds me of transportation station for interplanetary travel of spaceships or subspace device for teleportation of people through wormholes. Definitely a cool place.

Smith Tower bokeh. I was hoping to do this on a nicer day, but it's been kind of gray every time I am out there. Still, I thought the lighting here is pretty cool. HBW everyone, again...... :-p

I've always been fond of old fire escapes and spotted this beauty last Friday behind a Seattle carpark.

"Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness,

Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;

Conspiring with him how to load and bless

With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;

To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,

And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells

With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,

And still more, later flowers for the bees,

Until they think warm days will never cease,

For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells."

- John Keats, To Autumn

  

Who are these coming to the sacrifice?

To what green altar, O mysterious priest,

Lead'st thou that heifer lowing at the skies,

And all her silken flanks with garlands dressed?

What little town by river or sea shore,

Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel,

Is emptied of this folk, this pious morn?

And, little town, thy streets for evermore

Will silent be; and not a soul to tell

Why thou art desolate, can e'er return.

 

John Keats

Finally, a short break from the long weekend of rain..

"On such a day each road is planned

To lead to some enchanted land;

Each turning meets expectancy.

The signs I read on every hand.

I know by autumn's wizardry

On such a day the world can be

Only a great glad dream for me--

Only a great glad dream for me!"

- Eleanor Myers Jewett, An Autumn Day

Anyone know what species of tree this is?

THERE’S a certain slant of light,

On winter afternoons,

That oppresses, like the weight

Of cathedral tunes.

 

Heavenly hurt it gives us;

We can find no scar,

But internal difference

Where the meanings are.

 

None may teach it anything,

’T is the seal, despair,—

An imperial affliction

Sent us of the air.

 

When it comes, the landscape listens,

Shadows hold their breath;

When it goes, ’t is like the distance

On the look of death.

 

by Emily Dickinson

Underground Seattle - Seattle, Washington

Pioneer Square Station for the Light rail and bus service.

Another angle on Seattle's South Portal.

There were a number of ways to crop this to draw more attention to the mirrors but I just decided it should remain uncut. Definitely best viewed this way:'mirrors, bartops and tic tac toe' On Black
