The Red Tent
17th C. Red for royalty. Only surviving traveling military tent of its kind.. it’s thought to have been the home of Shah Jahan, the great 17th C Mughal emperor who built the Taj Mahal. A rich and impressive cotton/silk velvet exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum’s Peacock in the Desert Exhibition. We’ve seen it before but wanted to take the excellent docent tour with a charming Indian lady so inspite of the fact it’s a weekend and the second to last day of the show we took an Uber car (to test how how that works on my first try with it..-oh my we were there so early!) to the museum and enjoyed the tour with MANY others. I had my Sony with me but nothing in the city inspired me to take photos. We stopped at 2 department stores looking for one thing that was not found, finally got a coffee at the 5th coffee shop we looked for that had a SEAT to sit on. and had to get OUT of down town…trolley and walking. Im sorry to say I didn’t join the women’s march today as in the past 3 years..feel a bit guilty but also remembering my 2019 thots of “more art, more music, less politics.. “
The only other photo I liked from today was back in our neighborhood HERE while looking for his cousin, that Great Egret.
