Oh, my.....there goes my will-power again, or lack of. I like to go to El Diablo cafe on Queen Anne here in Seattle because they have good coffee and the atmosphere is conducive to writing, which I sometimes do there. I have also discovered they have luscious, good-old American-style cakes, like this devil's food one with coconut icing that I succumbed to.
I am fated to go "straight to El" for my sin, as you can see in the second photo. I can only hope that Satan has devil's food cake.....

How's this guy for a sweet Valentine? Judging by the heart on the window, I guess his name is Vincent. Not sure what he's wearing, but his surroundings definitely scream "Happy Valentine's Day".
I took the larger photo first, then noticed that he has a mini-me in the second photo.

The other day I posted a photo from a sushi bar, but had few commentors who shared my taste for that dish.
How about squid? These people were waiting for the sun to go down so the squid below the pier would be more amenable to their bait.

REVISION: Mathematically-challenged me now sees that there are indeed four fingers and a thumb....duh.
Bad enough to be dismembered hand, let alone be short a thumb along with a body. Seen on the floor of a closed business on Capitol Hill in Seattle.

In the back yard of my daughter's house stands the most beautiful magnolia tree, laden down with beautiful blossoms in the spring. I found this magnolia pod and liked the texture. I will crack it open to see the seeds, which are, I think, red. Should you have a pod and want to grow a magnolia tree, just google 'magnolia pod' and you'll see how.

NOTE: A big THANK YOU to blogger Alain, who informed me that this tree's name is named for the French botanist Pierre Magnol (June 8, 1638 – May 21, 1715) from Montpellier, France.

I had the privilege of selecting this month's theme, and I chose "What Would You Miss Most?" if you had to leave the city you usually post from.
I would definitely miss the Romi or Gypsy population here, for many reasons: their resourcefulness, their spontaneity, and their overall joie de vivre, despite many prejudices and hardships. I'm in Seattle now, and haven't seen a-one.
I've posted about them many times before, and you may remember this photo.
Today I'm posting several photos together, but hey, it's my meme and tomorrow is my birthday.
See other photos for this meme on City Daily Photo Theme Day.
NOTE: The other day I took one of those dumb quizzes everyone posts on Facebook. This one queried, "What were you in a former life?" Guess what I was: a gypsy!
This post is a double-header, since I am using this photo for SKYWATCH and for James' WEEKEND REFLECTIONS. Here we see the reflectio...
