Downtown Mini Photo Safari (Part III)

A couple months have passed since the last Downtown Mini Photo Safari. I've cleaned out the camera before the long Labor Day weekend. Here goes . . .

Spotted on the bus yesterday . . .



Some of the loot recovered at the Spanish Steps during a recent neighborhood clean-up with Safe Streets and some Winthrop residents . . .



No comment needed . . .



There is a new (to me at least) barber shop at the Courtyard By Marriott downtown . . .



The only non-Tacoma photo in the mix. I actually shot this in Portland in July. It never fails to make me laugh . . .



Two outtakes from the two-part feature on Pacific Plaza . . .





Two signs of the times . . .

Actually I DO have to comment on the creepy fire-extinguisher-mounted-MJ head.
Wanna hear something spooky?
I walk by that weird empty window most days on the way to work. On the VERY DAY he died, hours before the news had anything about it, it was knocked over.
Whatt'd I tell ya? Spooooooky.

I love the Pegasus sign. If I remember correctly, they were one of the dives (has DeRosa reviewed that place yet for the Volcano?) that fought the smoking ban and had a "smoke in"

I vote for the Morning Bartender Wanted sign.

And you know what's great about the Pegasus? Bus stop right in front. I can catch the #11 in the Stadium District and when it gets to 10th & Commerce it turns to the #41 which will drop me off right at Bloody Mary Central. Good Times.
