My documentary view from Occidental Plaza was taken in the summer of 1980 and marked the beginning for the popular "Market & Square" photographic calendar published in the fall of 1980 throughout the Seattle area by Superior Publishing. The King Dome, now demolished, is revisited in this photographic homage to the "old" Seattle... it is one of the 12 images selected for the calendar which offered unique images of the authentic Pike Place Market and the Pioneer Square area. One of my favorite images, the mounted policemen shown in silhouette, set against the backdrop of the Seattle King Dome, is a precious remembrance capturing the unvarnished flavor of Seattle on the verge of change.

This image was part of a larger documentary project which included the popular 1981 photographic calendar, "Market & Square." The calendar was dedicated to the many people who fought for the preservation of Pioneer Square and the Pike Place Market... and to the Artisans, Farmers, Street Musicians, Merchants and everyone who has ever known the Market and Square.

I made this image made utilizing a Nikon F2 film camera. The detail is enhanced by my use of an ultra sharp 85mm telephoto Nikkor lens. The original negatives have been kept in dark storage and are in pristine condition.
