Posted on July 27, 2013July 27, 2013 by WillemFriday/ back in Seattle It was a beautiful warm, sunny day here in Seattle (85°F/ 29°C). The pictures are from Fifth Ave in downtown, near the Convention Center. Artist Ginny Ruffner’s ‘Urban Garden (2011)’ was commissioned by the Sheraton Hotel on Fifth Ave in downtown Seattle. The watering can tilts forward from time to time and a stream of water cascades down the green leaf. Here’s the Emerald City ‘Trolley’. (We’re cheating a little bit. It’s not a real trolley like the one in San Francisco, since it’s not running on a track. We do have ‘street cars’. One track is in South Lake Union, with ones in Capitol Hill and in First Hill scheduled to open in the next year or so).
