Sunny Afternoon in Columbia City

An Anchor porter at Lottie's Lounge.

Love the old license plate holders.

Ten years ago I hitched to work every day. I paid cash.

Smoked tukeys.

Gather has a beautiful neon art installation of found letters from signs. It's shocking how many brands you can recognize just from the font and color. Like the "a" from Radio Shack.

The "x" isn't really an "x." It's that Cingular character thing.

This target will one day grace the roof of artist Jeremy Bert's Boulevard Park home. If you don't see it at Gather, you should be able to see it from a nighttime flight in or out of SeaTac.

(I just now realized that I've admired Jeremy's work at McLeod Residence before.)

Then a trip to the last Columbia City Farmer's Market of the season.

This is what I bought.

I doubt there will be a day this nice again for the rest of the year.

What a bad attitude! :)

Have you seen "Helvetica", about the font? It's entertaining. You can get it on DVD.

I have seen it. It's available as a stream on Netflix.

D'oh! I was stuck at work, and then Baby Classes™ all day... so I missed the sun! Fingers crossed that the clouds part a bit for this afternoon.
