While waiting for some friends, the "509 Urban Sketchers and Painters," to meet with me in this parking lot, this little coffee shop, off in the distance, caught my eye.
I didn't have time to finish it, so I added the color this morning while sitting in the early morning sun streaming through the kitchen windows.
I've been thinkinig about doing a series of these little coffee shops that have sprouted up all-over-the-place in recent years.
Once everyone was there, we caravaned over to the railroad yards for our session. This is my take on a line of cars sitting off to the side of this rather large train yard.
Trains come in here from Spokane (and points east), as well as points west to Portland, Oregon, and therefore up and down the west coast. Upon arrival here they are rearranged in this yard, depending upon final destinations.
There is a large hump in the yard where the bring the cars then leading down from the hump there are multiple tracks for making up all the different trains. It's a boat-load, or should that be "train-load" of fun to watch for a while.
