Beyond visual documentation, a great way to participate in urban planning for Capitol Hill (and a few other Seattle neighborhoods) is to provide in-person or electronic feedback on design proposals for new buildings. These resources will help you stay up to date on neighborhood developments:
- City of Seattle Land Use Public Notices. Sign up for their mailing list to receive notifications of proposed development.
- Design Review Calendar. See the design review meeting schedule, view and read developers’ proposals, plan to attend in person, or submit comments via email to the city planner. It does make a difference.

Notes/curious facts: Washington Irving was designed by the same architect as Swansonia. Its north windows look out on The Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption and the south – on the Russian Orthodox St Nicholas Cathedral. The garage north of Washington Irving was once a SONOCO service station, the first (or one of the first) in the city.
My experience with the beautiful and versatile Plymouth Congregational Church building taught me that one doesn’t get to know a building after one visit. When I was forced to come back and produce better exposures of the church, I discovered new angles every time. The light shifted and the shadows changed.
The class as a whole and the project in particular were a turning point in my photography. My prior focus was on the most interesting angles of a building, to the point of abstraction. That summer, I started showing buildings as accurately as possible, keeping the vertical vertical and the horizontal horizontal.

Allentown, one of Tukwila’s historic mini-neighborhoods, lies on the shores of the Green/Duwamish River north of the Tukwila community center. Allentown is flanked by I-5 and a bonded storage facility with heavy truck traffic on the east, but on the west the river flows through a quiet landscape of small houses and moored boats. A narrow wooden bridge connects the river banks. Allentown Grocery at the intersection of S 124th St and 42nd Ave S is an active store and looks like a classic small shop of the kind found on older Washington thoroughfares.
2017 Update: the houses have been demolished, and the area is now a public park.
