ChosenPerspectives on “Local Color” for WPC


Inside this relatively ordinary looking building in Seattle is a huge surprise, known only by a few Locals.

Oh, there are hints from the outside that there might just be some history here. Check out the rest of the building’s face.


But even these wild and clearly vintage signs don’t fully expose the secrets inside the building.

There is an amazing collection, a neon performance, hidden inside the wide open belly of the old building.

In a tiny space on the second floor, surrounded by this display, is where my “hair therapist” performs her magic on my aging, thinning, silver locks. I’ve followed Kelly for over 30 years to where ever she sets up shop, but this has to be my favorite location.

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

    1. The pictures ARE of what’s inside. Even standing on the inside balcony/walkway, it was impossible to get far enough back from the scene to capture the whole configuration. But it is really cool!!

  1. I like it when local color has a more interesting kind of look to it! Most of my local color is small town stuff!
    I saw your comment (daily musing’s Lisa) which had such a heartfelt story about a long time friend. It is funny but I was drawn towards the way you wrote. I also wrote a long message/response. 🙂 Smiles, Robin

    1. Thanks for your comment. I’m looking for yours to Lisa but haven’t found it yet. I sure like your site and have a couple of great stories to share, when I get a minute, but for now I will “follow”. Thanks again.
