Downtown Mini Photo Safari

I went out this afternoon to shoot some photographs for a story I'm working on. A good day to do it because it was sunny and cool, and I needed a little fresh air and a brisk walk. My goal of shooting photographs for one article quickly turned into a mini 'photo safari' of various observations along the way. I thought I would post some of those photos to the TDI blog.

I was disappointed to see Art Concepts on Broadway has closed its doors . . .


I haven't been north of City Hall for awhile, so I was pleasantly surprised by the BLID improvements near St. Helens and Market. This will probably turn into a smokers' lounge for City Hall staffers, but it looks nice . . .

This platform offers a cool view of City Hall, the Winthrop, and the top of Russell headquarters . . .

This made me chuckle . . .


No comment needed . . .

An Index newspaper box near 11th and Pacific . . .


I have always liked this view of the city . . .

On a similar note, make sure you read Morgan's article on downtown Tacoma's alleys.

Love these type of meandering photo blog posts. Nice work Sir. Depressing and funny. My favorite combination!

Hey, this Court A view to Wells Fargo is one of my favorite views of Tacoma as well (because for a brief moment you aren't sure you are in Tacoma).
