Point of View

Yesterday Himself and I went into Seattle to meet a friend who was here attending a conference.  We first went to lunch at Palomino, which I found to be delicious.

Our friend, John, wanted to go to Seattle Center.  We wandered around but didn’t go into any of the attractions.  I found this view of the Space Needle I’d not noticed before.  I did a quick sketch to finish later.  It’s the Needle, of course, as seen between 2 of the 5 Sonic Boom Sculptures.  They are by Dan Corson.  Each emits a difference harmonic tone triggered when someone stands near.  We played with them for a few minutes.

It’s in #5 traveling sketchbook from @alivelypen , Andre Behrens, who is a member and admin for Urban Sketchers Boston.

Late in the afternoon we took the monorail and then the light rail back to the International District.  John likes Asian groceries so we took him to Uwajimaya.  As we were leaving to look for a place to eat, I ran into April as she and a visiting friend came in.  I asked for advice on where to each and she enthusiastically recommended Dough Zone.  It was good.
