129) Here I am hanging out with a fine collection of friends on a sunny downtown sidewalk. Over on the left we have the McPaperbox triplets, Weekly McPaperbox, Stranger McPaperbox, and China Daily McPaperbox. You already know my BFF, Maily McMailbox. Then off to the side we have Recycly McCan and RegularTrashy McCan. Yeah, we have a good time together.
122) This is what I call a Box of Opportunity. Not because it is filled with opportunity (sure, it might be, but I didn’t look inside), but rather because of the way I came upon it. I had an appointment on First Hill, had to drive all over the place to find a parking spot, got out of the car and looked across the street… and there it was! And yes, I totally got photobombed, but I kind of like the way it looks.
115) While strolling through downtown, Carol and I decided to go into full tourist mode and whip out the selfie stick. You’ll notice how I expertly framed the background of this image to dramatically illustrate the battle between the old and the new in the ever-changing downtown landscape. Or maybe that was just an accident.
88) Prepare to have your mind blown. At first glance, you might think I totally screwed up with this picture… but then you soon see the mailbox through the window! But then you wonder where I am… then you see my faint reflection positioned just to the right of the box! It’s art! It’s art! If you want to create art like this, head downtown to 3rd Ave at Virginia Street and give it a go!
78) Yeah, this mailbox is downtown, but I’m not sure I should tell you where it is. It’s already in a very crowded location and I’m not sure it wants any more attention… especially after dealing with thousands of tourists every day. No, please stay away from 1st Ave at Pike Street and give this poor box some rest.
54) Today we pop back downtown to visit this regal box on 1st Ave at Lenora. You’ll note that I’m doing my best to conceal the green relay box that’s doing its best to photobomb the shot. Yeah, I know the relay boxes serve legitimate purposes, but sometimes they can be real jerks.
34) There’s a lot going on in this photo, so stick with me. I’m standing on Pike Place, which, for some reason, is still legal to drive on. Those people are lined up for Starbucks, just so they can say they got coffee at the first Starbucks location. I don’t drink coffee, so I have no idea why that would be a thing you would stand in a long line to do. If you were a fan of the original 1960s TV series, my t-shirt will need no explanation.
