Everyday Photos Shot & Selected by me.
This is Kla Ha Ya Park located just below First Street between Avenues B and C and where I practice Tai Chi every morning.
This view is looking west on the Snohomish River Front Trail, then I turned around for the view east.
The shores of Kla Ha Ya Park!
Meanwhile, a dramatic day in town: A 15 year civics discussion ends with the removal of the “library’s 1968 addition!” Read more here.
The iconic (and popular) shot of the Snohomish River is from the overlook on First Street and Avenue C; it’s my birthday month, and the clouds have gathered.
This is where I practice Tai Chi, called Kla Ha Ya Park. It was a spectacular morning for the dawn of Covid 19 consciousness!
Cady Landing: As the first location of Snohomish, when it was called “Cadyville,” it’s a nice site for a wedding.
I took several shots that morning. This one may not even be the best.
E. C. Ferguson, the Father of Snohomish and his wife, Lucetta, platted and named the city in 1871; I’d like to think it was Lucetta who suggested that First Street line up with the bend in the river.
One day in May, the fly loft of the historic Brown Theatre stage house was gone. Are those the new owners, standing where the theater’s fly loft once stood?
Let your eyes follow the trail up the buildings to spot the workers, high in the air, working on the old theater.
Two views of the new windows installed without a permit. The large windows are not code for a building in the Historic District of Snohomish.
First Street view of the historic theater building which began screening movies in 1924 along with stage shows as well. It’s life as a theater was over by 1995. Note the new construction, high on the right.
In 2015, I made a short, two-part movie about the Ferguson Cottage.
In the sunshine filled mornings of May, I’d often see this man eating his “carry-out” breakfast at the same picnic table in Cady Landing Park, always alone.
My view for Tai Chi every morning.
The Saturday jogging squad running west while the their conversation never lags.
The Snohomish River Front Trail’s major funding source was a Federal grant from the Transportation Department since the 2006 trail follows the railroad route completed in 1910.
The Carnegie Library was also completed in 1910, as was the railroad tracks on a trestle along the north bank of the river.
A secret park (on private land) overlooking the river.
Kla Ha Ya Park looking towards First Street.
An organized group that prays together in different towns — today was Snohomish’s turn.
Taken from Kla Ha Ya Park “… I feel so disconnected these days …” I heard the woman say.
Morning regulars, Terry and his dog Bud.
Construction in the park upgrading the sewer system.
This was a lucky shot coming down the stairs.
Hope you have enjoyed your scroll down memory lane — it was quite a year.
All images are copyrighted which only means to please credit this page if you post an image online — none are for sale and not large enough to print. Between five and seven images per month are published here, just a fraction of the shots taken, so I plan to revisit the inventory looking for the good ones I couldn’t use, so come back.
