Last fall, my daughter and I drove into downtown Seattle
to just spend a couple hours ‘shooting.’
When boredom befalls a photographer,
what are you to do?
Well, ‘shoot’ everything, right?

Here, behind a turn of the century red brick building in an alleyway,
I was drawn by the shapes and textures of the black wrought iron fire escapes.
Walk up close, shoot at an angle,
back up and lean against the brick wall shoot straight up,
move a step, shoot, lean back a tad, shoot.
Then after coming home, sorting through the shots,
I realized there was a yellow tag on the bottom of one of the fire escape landings.
Pulling it up closer, it says ‘Fire Escape Has Deficiencies.’
Then looking even closer,
I see it was signed in 2009, by the Seattle Fire Chief and says,
‘Do Not Remove.’
Oh, that’s not a good thing.
A fire escape with deficiencies.

My good friend Nancy over at ‘A Rural Journal,’
has started another new meme, this one on Fridays called ‘Random 5 Friday.’
So here we go, five random facts about me.
- I’ve driven a 40′ transit style 78 passenger school bus for 14 years.
- I’m a camera rebel, and not a Canon, I shoot exclusively with Pentax gear.
- I love to wear nail polish, doing my own Shellac mani and pedicures.
- I don’t like liver and licorice.
- I love country music.
Even though my post tile is ‘deficiencies,’
I’m not admitting any to you today! Wink. Wink.
There you go!
