The thing I’ve noticed is that when I make photos in a place I only visit one time, I have a weird tendency to think that everything I saw/photographed is going to always look exactly the way it did when I saw it. (Yes, yes I do need to get over myself.)
When I was working on this post the other day, I thought it might be nice to include the name of the shipyard, so I headed over to Google maps. There wasn’t a sign or anything to indicate the name of the business, but I did notice that the street view image was made in October 2015, only three months after my visit. And there was an entirely different ship* there! Because of my weird tendency and my complete ignorance about how long these sorts of things take, I was really surprised when I realized what was going on.
It doesn’t take much, some days.

*Or is it a boat? I really don’t know…
You know how I like to say “look around back”?
And you know how most pictures of Pike Place Market look like this?
This is what happened when I followed my own advice.
Pike Place Market
I guess those excellent wooden doors weren’t staying shut, so the spool was put into service as a door stop; those Nebraskans are resourceful like that.
Yeah, so it happened again. I saw this image and a piece of a song floated through my mind.
