Hi, Frank-

Attached is a photo I  took in La Conner, Washington last year. I thought you might find it usable for your blog. I apologize for the tilt. I have subscribed to your blog for a year and really enjoy your work.

Best regards,
Fred King

Thanks Fred! Don’t apologize for the tilt! Without it, how would it go down the hatch?

Fred says: Currently 58 years old. I’m a grandfather. I have a chronic illness that has not allowed me to work the past few years. Lots of meds, no cure. Love photography as a hobby and love to write, as therapy of sorts. The blogs I subscribe to and run across are truly inspiring. There is just so much imagery being captured and shared around the world. Visual imagery as well as that evoked in writing. I’m humbled to play a small part in this community.

Seattle Public Market Sunflowers & Column – Pike Place Market History

© Frank H. Jump

Pike Place Market is a public market overlooking the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, United States. The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continually operated public farmers’ markets in the United States. It is a place of business for many small farmers, craftspeople and merchants. Named after the central street, Pike Place runs northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street, and remains one of Seattle’s most popular tourist destinations.

The Market is built on the edge of a steep hill, and consists of several lower levels located below the main level. Each features a variety of unique shops. Antique dealers, comic book sellers, small family-owned restaurants, while the area contains one of the few remaining head shops left in Seattle. The upper street level contains fishmongers, fresh produce stands and craft stalls operating in the covered arcades. Local farmers and craftspeople sell year-round in the arcades from tables they rent from the Market on a daily basis, in accordance with the Market’s mission and founding goal: allowing consumers to “Meet the Producer.”

Pike Place Market is home to nearly 500 low income residents who live in 8 different buildings throughout the Market. The Market is run by the quasi-government Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority (PDA). The Pike Place Market sees 10 million visitors annually. – Wikipedia

There are several layers on this wall of what I call pentimentos (see Fading Ad Vocabulary). On the right, perhaps I see a saxophone or brass instrument. On the lower left, perhaps I see the word GAS. I can’t make out the manufacturer of the “builder of hats.” Any clues? What do you see?
