Mellow Yellows: Seattle and southward

It was nice to see "Debbie's Travels" on Mellow Yellow Monday. Debbie is a blogging friend we met in Brussels, Belgium, on our way to Paris in April of this year. She and her fiancé (now husband) met us for dinner and we had such a good time we forgot to get photos.
Her first submission to MYM was today, with photos of a Christmas they spent in Paris. Mine are not as exotic, but have plenty of yellow, starting with mystery metal yellow things outside a building overlooking the Amtrak station in Seattle, Washington. They might be pieces of fencing. They might be bicycle racks. The station is nicely reflected in the windows, and nice yellow light shines out.

When I turned around from taking this photo, I couldn't help but notice the name change on the football field. I remember it as Qwest Field but it is now Century Link Field. And, of course, there were yellow taxis outside the train station. There were still yellow trees in the stadium grounds, too, although it was the last day of November this year.

Finally, from the train taking me to Oregon to meet my longtime friend Maryann for a visit at her lovely house on the wonderful Oregon coast, I saw the liquid gold of a very mellow, very yellow sunset. Lots of mellow yellows from an unexpected part of my trip! I always told my husband I'd never take from-the-train photos, and who thought I'd find any while waiting for a train?

How was the train ride? It's been a long time since I've been on one. I just got back from a week at the cabin. No sun, but a wonderful time just the same. - Margy
