Opera Images

A Mall and the Night Visitors


  1. While attending the University of Washington, the Music Department, if my memory serves me correct, put on the opera, Amahl and the Night Visitors. The catchy title has remained in my mind ever since and often conjured up the above images. The top photo is Lloyd Center at Christmas, 2004 and the bottom photo was taken in the Wallowa Mountains in 2008.

  2. When I see these photos in such close proximity, it occurs to me that visiting malls would be a much more enjoyable experience if there were hundreds of squirrels running around inside of them.

    I'm not sure the same is true of adding axes to the mix, but either way I would definitely go more often.
