I had a tripod. And a night where I felt like staying in. So naturally I amused myself by taking lots of photos of the various traffic patterns on the street below my hotel room. That’s a normal thing to do, right?
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 was in Seattle last month for the American Planning Association’s national conference, which is pretty much as exciting as it sounds.
On a urban-planning themed city tour, I got to see the Gas Works Park, which is on the location of a former (pay close attention here, because it starts to get complicated) gas works. It’s been a park since the mid-1970s, and is sort of famous for having kept part of the gas works structures in place.
Which I suppose means that the cyclops was somehow part of gas production.
