Sonic Blooms

These 'flowers' bloom all year 'round at Seattle Center and they're called Sonic Blooms.

You approach them and they hum in various tones. I had the impression of walking through a garden of Buddhist temples....

And they remind me in a way of melodic Tryffids....

Yankee in Belgrade Meets Susie of Arabia

I took the ferry from Seattle to Bremerton to meet Susie of Arabia, who was spending the holidays at her brother's in Gig Harbor.
We got along great and I'm sorry we couldn't spend more time together.
If you're wondering about the animals, we had lunch at a diner called Noah's Ark....
The four of us intrigued the little girl peering through the door.
Check out one of Susie's blogs, Jeddah Daily Photo, that you'll find on the sidebar on the right.

Took the ferry to Bremerton last week to meet up with another yet-unknown to me tomorrow.

This young man was seated inside across the deck from me, and his reflective shadow caught my eye, along with the light's reflections on the window.

See other reflections on WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.

Blending in

 Quite an impressive array of windows on these Seattle buildings.  They seem to merge into one...

Tiny, but only in size

This Chihuahua may be tiny, but he has no trouble keeping up with a walk around Green Lake here in Seattle.
