A wonderful display of Lake Union photographs that look like watercolors is on display through March 28 at Cafe Senso Unico in downtown Seattle, 622 Olive Way, Seattle, WA 98101. I just happened to stumble across them on my lunch hour while doing errands and ducking into the cafe for a cup of caffeine to get me through the second half of the day.
The jewel color prints caught my eye as familiar houseboats, but I didn’t realize how familiar until I got up close. They’re by Thea Yeannakis, a 28-year-old artist, who grew up on a Eastlake houseboat, went to TOPS-Seward School, Nathan Hale, and the UW, and still lives on an Eastlake houseboat.
The photos all framed and for sale at reasonable prices, capture that magical feel of Lake Union and are definitely worth the visit to the downtown cafe.

Here are a couple of the images I snapped on my cell phone, though it doesn’t really do them justice:
