Here’s a nice bit of artwork on a card that arrived in the mail to introduce Seattle residents to Umpqua bank. Click it to enlarge it. They got most of Seattle’s icons in : salmon, kayaking, sailing, a few Boeings, Pike Place Market, a woman holding an umbrella, the Pink Elephant carwash sign (see it?), the Space Needle (OF COURSE) – but how about a coffee bean or the Starbucks lady? Speaking of the Pink Elephant carwash sign – I need to go and buy myself a proper tripod for night photography for once and for all and go shoot the pink neon of the elephant next week when I have a little time.
I dialed into the China conference call again today and they all yelled ‘Merry Christmas! for the Americans on the call’ and giggled.
