Chinatown

Nov. 22nd, 2015 11:55 am
Yesterday my daughter and I met up with my mother and spent the afternoon in the International District (Chinatown). It was kind of a dark day, so I tried using and ISO setting of 400 so I didn't have to use too long of a shutter speed.

I took some pictures in the bus tunnel, and was talked to by a security guard. He just gave me a friendly reminder not to use my flash...which I wasn't. Seems like security levels are a bit higher this week. Cool tunnel.

Here's a few shot from outside the Asian grocery store.








Here's a familiar scene from [livejournal.com profile] storm777's journal...


Some more pictures as we walked north through Pioneer Square. I put a few alley shots in a different post from this walk.




I think this is a wolf...maybe a bear?

Makes me miss being out and about. I used to take photos of the bridge here all the time, but after 9/11 seems like any time someone is police are called and they question the people. Makes me sad how certain freedoms were lost. Still snowy here and will be cold for the week to come but no more snow I think.

Why no flash? Would it "blind" security cameras?

I have no idea what their issue with flashing was.

Ahh, so many favorites here :) Good ol' Joe's-and the Union Market--and Ground Zero (2nd Ave. Ext. S) where you surely encountered some of the guys I work with *lol* Nice shots!

And I am wondering why there is a prohibition on the flash. My first thought was either "muzzle flash" or something that could distract a driver. I will ask my regular bus driver to see if he knows.

I love the architecture of the bus tunnel. It's really pretty.

I like the wolf/bear - looks like graffiti mixed with decoupage :)

It's interesting what the planning might be like to do something like that and not get caught.
