Rainy Day at the Fremont Market

I’m debating going to the Fremont Sunday Market tomorrow. It’s a fun place to get a bit to eat, look at antiques and crafts, and people watch.

You know you’re at the market when you see the flags and unofficial vehicle.

There are a lot of great arts in Fremont.

It is Fremont, Center of the Universe, and capital of all things quirky. At the annual Solstice Parade, you can see dozens of naked cyclists wearing nothing but body paint and a smile.

I went to the market a couple of months ago and ran into a dog named Zsa Zsa who had a heart-shaped patch of brown fur on her back.

I asked to take her picture and not only did her person oblige, she gave me a bookmark with the link to Zsa Zsa’s website! Turns out Zsa Zsa has a book.

I had a pair of this style of roller skates when I was a kid. They are adjustable in length and wider and strap on to a pair of shoes. Old school!

I also had these classic wooden blocks. It’s probably a bad sign when the toys of my childhood are considered antiques.

If you’re ever in Seattle, I recommend a trip to the Fremont Market.

Shadow Shot: Dog Days

I’m getting artsy on you again. It’s time for another Shadow Shot post. Don’t forget to check out all the others over at Hey Harriet.

Before you chide me for featuring pet pictures, hear me out: Over the years, I’ve been intrigued by the shadows my dog casts. I love how his shadows distort him and make him seem like a little monster. Here are a few of my favorites:

sandy dog

shadowy dog

cherry blossom dog

bridge dog

pensive dog

The sandy shot was taken at Cannon Beach in Oregon. The glass bridge crosses the Sacramento River in Redding, California.

Not only is Frankie my muse, assistant, and subject, he’s also an artist in his own right. Have a look at the photos he “took” recently.
