When I heard on NPR that Lou Reed passed away, I had to post a photograph I took two years ago.
Easy Street Records on Lower Queen Anne always jumped at me because of its almost electric blue painted exterior and of course, the autographed hand painted portrait of Lou Reed on the door of its shipping-and-receiving area. The record store is now gone. Its building has been torn down to build a new structure. It feels strange not to see that almost familiar electric blue and Lou.
