Saturday in Tacoma

It was great to draw with the group again. Now I wonder why I was away for so long. It is really impressive to see the effort that Tacoma is putting into preserving this area, rather than just tearing everything down and putting up a bunch of boring/ugly/overpriced high-rises, like another nearby city that I know of. This old art-deco theatre is built on a steep side street- I wonder, when there is a line for the show, if it goes uphill or downhill? 
After lunch I wandered around until this array of railroad signals caught my eye. I was taken by how "purposeful" they looked, all lined up, meaning business, not to be ignored.
See you next time. Hope the weather holds.
