30Nov03: New Tacoma Photos

Recommended Posts

A little dedication to my son, who apparently is going to be a good and solid

future urban warrior! ;)

He even took several of the photos (with plenty o'help) below and rode

some of that silk-smooth new Tacoma rail for the first time.

Photos from last Sunday. (Filler quotes above pictures are some Ayn Rand

stuff... heh.)

Conv. Ctr (future spire here...) under construction

Birds. They always do spontaneous photo fly-bys...

First lesson in urban punk training.

I distract traveller, you take the bag. ;)

Need a night photo of this.

Shut her up! Blue and Green in the 'Theater District.'

PB300063-tac14.jpg

Diggin' it.

PB300066-tac14.jpg

His first urban photo.

PB300067-tac14.jpg

Sign inside said no drinks on the electric wave-machine kiddo!

PB300068-tac14.jpg

His second urban photo.

PB300070-tac14.jpg

His third urban photo. Tacoma Dome pit-stop meets Sounder hook-up.

PB300072-tac14.jpg

His fourth. Like the sign says. But, you park there.

PB300073-tac14.jpg

57 Downtown.

PB300074-tac14.jpg

More looks from the Tacoma Dome stop.

PB300075-tac14.jpg

Across the street, the entrance to the Sounder. Quiet, as the train

has a special schedule due to Seahawk blue and green up in Seattle.

Austin charting our next course of action. (Too bad it's Dad's Alaska

'water maps'... well, he didn't actually have to 'know' that part.)

PB300079-tac14-austinchart.jpg

Independence.

PB300081-tac14-1024.jpg

Random last shot before departing the stop at Tacoma Dome.

PB300082-tac14.jpg

PB300086-tac14.jpg

All types of urban 'Cruisers.'

PB300087-tac14.jpg

UW-T old and new merging.

PB300088-tac14.jpg

No chihuahuas.

PB300089-tac14.jpg

Back to the conv. ctr. u/c. Skoda gliding again. Steady headway here.

PB300090-tac14.jpg

Rainier and center city obstructions.

PB300093-tac14.jpg

Escalator is not ready. Do not enter.

PB300094-tac14.jpg

Random. Completely.

PB300095-tac14.jpg

His last photo. Mini-me pano (with help from remote.) He had a

fine day. So did I!

Looks like a nice city.

There was an article in the Architectural Record (p. 110, Aug. 2003) on the Tacoma Art Museum, and I must say I was impressed. There is a fantastic picture of an overhead view of the museum, those condos in your 5th pic. the suspension bridge, and a domed building in the distance reflecting a beautiful sunset/sunrise.

I like the LRT system but IMO, the paint job on the cars is quite ugly.
