Opening Time - J&M Cafe & Cardroom

J&M Cafe is on 1st Ave & Washington St one block south of Yesler which is part of the historical club district dating back to Seattle's earliest days. Both a night club and a daytime tourist trap. I haven't spent much time inside in the five decades I have been walking the district.

A Horse on Alaskan Way

This was taken August 23, 2008 late in the day just before sunset. The location is on the water side of Alaskan Way just south of Pier 56 where all the tour boats tie up. There are several horse drawn carriages that work that location in the summer time.

The reason for the crop was simple, I had a long lens mounted and this was as wide as I could go. The maple trees cast a leaf pattern shadow on the back of the horse.
