Today would have been an otherwise regular day, if it weren’t for the little discoveries I find.
This mural, is the other side of a building I often pass on Broadway street in Capitol Hill (17th and John). I cut through Cal Anderson Park to the back of the building, and I notice this lengthy work of art along the back. There is posted credits to Baso Fibonacci, Zach Rockstad, and Japhy White.
Here is a shot further on. The back residential street is very narrow, with cars back to back along the way. Shots from afar were not good, and filled with much cars. But I like this angle, though it only captures a small part. The first shot above is the best I could do. I like it.
Tis cool to know what kind of sights are around the corner to my otherwise familiar paths. Perhaps, I’ll come back when there are no cars and try for a wider shot of the long art.
Much later and further away to the Downtown Seattle area, I cut through the Post Alley underpass at Pike Place Market for another errand. And here, the wall art (which I post up occasionally) is ever changing with something new and thought provoking..
Yesterday, I posted a small portion of some amazing wall art one could see in the Post Alley opening (located under the side of Seattle’s famous Pike Market).
Now, I share a bit more. What is now seen is only what’s here for now and certain to change over time. No two visits over an extended time period are the same. I will look forward to every revisit.
But for now, explore with your eyes..
In Seattle, below the Pike Market, in Post Alley, near the Gum Wall.
The little wads are gum, previously chewed from the passing peoples. You should see the other side behind me. Both walls together is an imagery overload. I think one wall will do for now..
Under the great Pike Market of Seattle, inner Post Alley…
You may notice ever-changing art; boggling and fantastic, ugly and beautiful.
Behind and further down, there is an entire wall of chewed bubblegum built over the past decades (pics for another day on that). Tourists tend to focus their attention towards the gum, while I feel this is more deserving of such appreciation.
