Week 22, Renaissance Faire

I’ve never been to a Renaissance Faire before, and there was one within an hour’s drive of my house, so I thought it would be a good chance for some fun, some people watching, seeing some interesting costumes, and all over a three-day weekend (USA holiday, Memorial Day). I brought two cameras, a Canon FTb…

Week 10-13 I think…..? Various things!

Week 21: Yesler Terrace on a K1000

On Saturday a friend and I checked out Yesler Terrace, a low income housing complex in Seattle.   Most of the residents have been kicked out for a big new redevelopment of several blocks into new high/low income housing that hasn’t been started yet. Former Washington state governor Gary Locke spent some years growing up in…
