Bellevue; a First Impression

Dad decided it was time to upgrade his brand image. One step along this path was to get a new image for his Linked-in. He decided to go with something more executive than his long time image of sunglasses and safety vest. So he made an appointment with a photography studio in Bellevue, and ditched the safety vest.

Bellevue is Seattle’s smaller sister across Lake Washington, and is very posh.


This was Dad’s first chance to walk around in Bellevue, so he made reservations for dinner and set off to see the town, or at least see the part of the town within walking distance of the photographer’s studio.


In just 20 minutes, Dad walked past a super-upscale department store, a fancy cafe and a restaurant that served what Dad finally determined to be a pan-galactic gargle blaster, with the lemon wedge replaced with a slice of orange, but otherwise identical.
