West Seattle Monday: Ballot van; martial arts; sports trivia…

Dragon in the sky over West Seattle! In case you hadn’t seen that photo on the WSB Facebook page, we’re sharing it here too. Thanks to Viola from Wise Orchid Martial Arts for sharing it; she credits husband Rusel for the pic. Now, fiercely onward to highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

Not in West Seattle but of interest:

WEST SEATTLE PHOTOGRAPHER’S NEW EXHIBITION: Christopher Boffoli‘s new “Big Appetites” photography exhibition “Amuse Bouche” has just opened at Winston Wächter Fine Art in South Lake Union. Christopher (longtime WSB contributor) says, “The exhibition – a continuation of work with tiny figures and food – features all new photographs shot over the past year in my West Seattle studio, as well as a few classics being presented in super-sized mountings for the first time (like the 48×72″ version of Macaron Team, which features Bakery Nouveau macarons).” The studio is open 10 am-5 pm Mondays-Saturdays. (203 Dexter Avenue N.)

    Nice picture of the dragon. Also reminds me a bit of Rodan. The 50s movie that scared me so much as a kid that I am still addled.

Sorry, comment time is over.
