Seattle Shows Its (Seahawk) Colors

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My wife Florangela got the brilliant idea that I ought to photograph various ways that Seattle was showing its Seahawk colors in advance of Saturday’s division playoff game here against the New Orleans Saints. I had planned on staying warm and dry, but the idea grew on me. So I’m presenting the images a couple ways – via slideshow above and individually below (so they can be viewed a little larger).

This effort, and especially its spirit, is dedicated to the memory of Fred Cordova, a critical supporter and mentor of mine, and voice, journalist and historian for the people.

Enjoy and go Hawks!
