Dumpling Resturant, Seattle.

This drawing has made me think about the feeling of 'outside looking in'. I took the photograph on a 'sky bridge' to the parking garage looking back at Pike's market.

To be in the inside... a warm world within, the smells, lighting, conversation, shelter. The outsider looking in can imagine all those things but experiences none of them. There's a sense of longing or 'wanting' being on the outside. But, it can be a good thing too - in a less desirable location. Like seeing prison windows from the freeway!

Hmm... I feel a series coming on. Happy Sunday!
