Aquamarine/Nanna K's Day

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.
