At the always energetic Pike Place Fish Co. at the Market, they like to make a show of their work. The staff… Let’s call them boisterous. They’re loud. It’s loud. And it’s brilliant. They’re holding the attention of a large crowd by chucking huge salmons between them like NBA stars with a basketball.


It led me to have the following discourse with one of the fish guys:


“Do you ever drop it?”

“We’re human, of course we drop it!”

“What happens then?”

“We pick it up… But we don’t sell it to humans. It goes to the zoo for the bears.”


It could be worse, I suppose…it could well be a giraffe at a Danish zoo named Marius.

  • Wonderful and appropriate use of color. I Love this one.

  • Quick question on film and processing... What color print film are you most pleased with and who in town is processing it to your satisfaction?

    • Hi Rose,

      Well, Panda Lab ( do a superb job - I think all the regulars at Glazer’s head there. Kodak Portra - I prefer, if I can get my hands on it, the older VC & NC, but otherwise the new version. About to experiment developing and processing colour - not as easy, though, as B&W.
