That afternoon, I took a train up to Seattle for a concert. And the next morning, while walking through the UW campus to take light-rail back to the train station, I decided to detour through the quad, just in case those trees had popped.
And had they ever. And just about everyone in the city had come by to take them in. I sketched a small part of the scene (while overhearing a photographer complaining about how to deal with the crowds of people in his way).
