seattle properties: Seattle Autumn Leaves - 11/01/11 08:27 AM
It was inevitable that I would find a way to get out and stroll among the vibrant colors of fall in Seattle with camera in hand before all of the trees were bare. The autumn leaves of red and gold have been calling me to join them, their haunting melody returning softly to remind me that time will not stand still to wait for me…
So here we are, enjoying a typical fall day in the Emerald City. Blustery, wet, with a hint of damp cedar clinging in the air. As one who truly loves this climate, the adventure was … (17 comments)

Come with us now, into the woods, and feel Mother Nature. Her shimmering droplets of rain on our faces. Leaves cascade down ever so gently as trees stand tall and proud, even as their very roots are exposed for all to see.
Come with us now, as we cross over into a special place, that belongs to anyone with the desire to be here. Feel the serenity, smell the forest thick in the air, and know we are one.

  Operating their cranes like a quarter dropping arcade addicts, these Puget Sound creosote cleanup committees have their work cut out for them.

The toxic wood preservative used on treated pilings, containing more than 300 chemicals, leaches contaminates into the sound and beaches for the duration of a treated logs life. And that can be a very long time!

Walk with me now, through the Garden of Remembrance. It isn't far, just off 2nd Avenue and University. It will be worth the walk to  Benaroya Hall, where the Seattle Symphony astounds us with timeless, captivating music.

The stone is smooth and cold under the canopy of trees that protect … (4 comments)

seattle properties: Bronze, Silver or Gold - 09/12/11 04:51 AM
Seattle's Pike Place Market, is always an adventure on the weekends. The hustle and bustle, with fish flying, ice frantically being shoveled, produce trucks delivering seasonal bounty, and floral arrangements being bundled together with artistic flair.
Today, I have noticed a trio of street performers not singing, playing instruments or even juggling. Rather, contributing to the carnival vibe of Pike Place Market by becoming  living art. Statue people, if you will, devoted to enhancing our overall experience with their very presence among us.
