From the Seattle Municipal Code: Our Sign Code, part of our Land Use Code, regulates most permanent signs, awnings, billboards, kiosks, community bulletin boards, and temporary signs. We regulate signs based on the zoning of the property where the sign is located. Sign regulations are different in various zones, so a sign used in one zone may not be allowed in a different zone.
Stapled, glued, pinned…they advertisements run a great gamut from the purely amateur to the polished, workshopped professional.
June 22, 2019. Looking for a first hike of the summer, we pointed our car up Highway 2 towards Stevens Pass. Although we had been aiming for Lake Dorothy, some last minute guidebook consulting and possible iffy (read: pending rain) weather had us aborting the longer drive and looking for something a bit closer. We were glad we did, as we happened to return to Barclay Lake.
The access road is a ways past Monroe, near milepost 41 and across the street from a store that has been selling conveniences for, well, probably since miners and loggers were making their way into these hills. Up the rutted and pitted road to its end and after two plus miles of fairly gentle hiking, one finds Barclay Lake.
My daily project had been inspired by New York photographer and attorney, Woody Campbell. With over 3500 consecutive days of mostly excellent shots, I thought why not me.
I made it to day 229 or so when the Seattle winter conspired against my creativity and crushed my motivation.
But one spark remained. I watched as Richie Roesch took on a daily challenge. His weekly photo roundups were mostly stellar. He too suffered from some winter doldrums, but unlike me he powered through and is approaching week 52. An admirable and inspiring accomplishment; One I hope to repeat.
The first week’s photos all come from my iPhone. Two are rather pedestrian photos of meals; something I’d rather avoid (although Stephen Shore does sometimes pull it off).
