These pictures were all taken with my iPhone. I’m still learning how to use it. Today I discovered the zoom function is activated by brushing one’s finger across the bottom of the preview picture ! And my fat finger is in the way in the photo of Caffe Vita Coffeehouse’s neon sign. (I had dinner earlier in the week next door at the gastropub* restaurant Quinn). Neon signs and night scenes are tricky and the lighting has to be adjusted manually, something the phone camera cannot do. But I had better luck with the Pilsner Urquell beer sign. The two apartment buildings are on Denny Way. I stayed for two years in the newer yellow and tan one when I first came to Seattle in 2000. The Twice Sold Tales bookstore is just up the block from there. And then on Broadway – as always when walking by – I checked on the progress of the construction of the Capitol Hill light rail train station. There is a yellow-clad human figure on the left in the middle of the picture.
