It is high tourist season in Salem due to October being Halloween month. The street chair image is not far from the action. The location, with storefront glass embedded in a former industrial building, turned shops and now museum and the painted jack-o-lanterns on the spandrel below represent Salem quite well right now: playful and bare-function. I didn’t mean to do this, but the orange chair bottom almost echos the pumpkins! My comment on the sheet, to get things going was: “I love orange!”
