Honestly, it's worth taking a day to visit some of these places. They're experiences you won't forget.
You all remember the song "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba? It was a massive hit back in 1997. The band ended in 2012 after 30 years together. One of the band members, drummer, guitarist and vocalist Danbert Nobacon, moved to Washington State. He's now a music teacher in the small town of Twisp in the north Cascade Mountains. Every once in a while he comes in to Seattle to perform. This was taken at the Left Bank Book Cooperative in Seattle's Pike Place Market. Not just him, there were several young artists on the bill. He actually came in early to listen to the other singers perform. I was standing next to him the whole time and didn't even realize it until he finally went up to the "stage" aka "corner of the store" to do his set. Nobacon was charming and gracious, very funny with a lot of great stories about the music biz. It was a great time in a very intimate setting.
Although Frutiger from the Basel Hipstapak is a black and white film, it comes with a splash of color inspired by something called the International Type Style. It can be turned off like a border. Susie really blows out the light, but adding the Pop Rox flash gets it under control again. Admittedly, the original photo is already a bit overblown due to harsh light shining on Nobacon's bald head.
