Here are a few snapshots from Maple Leaf: Seattle City Light workers in a cherry picker, and lots of trees, cars, wires and poles (even a few poles waiting to be installed). The one that makes me wistful, though, is the downtown skyline, which I can see a tiny glimpse of from Second Avenue Northeast.
The last time I was downtown was in February when USk Seattle sketched at Columbia Center – almost seven months ago. I think this may be the longest period of my adult life that has passed without a trip downtown. Even without counting the 11 years I worked downtown, the city has always been an ongoing part of my life. It was rapidly changing even when I saw it regularly. Will I recognize it as my city the next time I visit, whenever that is?
