Look.  Up in the sky.  If in the middle of a large cities downtown, you’ll probably have to look through any number of huge buildings.  Never having worked in one myself, I’ve always wondered what all those stories are for.  How much office work does one city need?  And these buildings are tall and many.  So many financial, legal and insurance people I guess.  Good for them, but I’ll stay street level in the cities and get up high in the mountains.

OK.  Who knows what this building is and where it is??  To me, it’s always looked like one of those world war II German helmets.  I  picture Sargent Schultz when I see it.  I know it’s not quite right, but I can’t seem to help it.  It’s actually quite an interesting and unique building.

Wandering the neighborhoods of Seattle I happened upon the lovely Gas Works Park on the shore of Lake Union.  Such a beautiful place to while away the time and let the day turn to evening to night.  Directly across the lake lie the buildings of a clustered downtown.  I stood around for some time and let darkness creep in around me.  A peaceful evenings meditation.

Everything in context.  Just east of the Seattle center and its iconic space needle is, go figure, a residential neighborhood.  Some people have a train to listen to as it makes its way.  Of course, the sound of traffic is ever present in most large cities.  But, these folks have the presence of a needle in their midst.  One can only dream.

I know the space needle takes the prize as far as Seattle icons go, but the EMP building at the Seattle Center gets my vote.  It’s newer and much shorter though so just doesn’t get the press or views that the needle does.  This building has so many nooks and crannies it’s not hard to find a good angle that reframes the eye.  And speaking of eye, do you see it?

When I fly into Seattle, I always head north up through the city on the way to my destination.  Sometimes I’m hurrying through and don’t bother to stop.  But, this time I had some time and sought out this particular angle into the heart of the city for some nighttime photo-taking fun.  I was a bit frustrated that it was cloudy with the ever present northwest mist-drizzle-rain getting me wet, keeping me cold and casting doubt as to whether it was even worth being there.  As I chose to make the effort, I persisted.  Even after a bit of complaining, I’m usually glad I make the effort.

Keeping on the theme of art museums, and I ask myself when have I ever followed a theme in these postings?, this is Seattle’s equivalent  to the last image of Denver’s art museum.  SAM as it’s called.  Multiple stories of beautiful artwork right downtown, close to everything else downtowny.   In fact, whether it’s kosher to or not, here’s also something from inside, as well.

I’m always on the lookout for parking garages when in a city full of tall buildings.  They almost always give a pretty good above-the-ground perspective of what’s around.  On this cloudy summer day in Seattle I didn’t even have to look.  It’s where we parked our car next to the hotel we were staying at.  The view was perfect.  It was very near the sound, so one viewpoint was of the Pike St. market and water.  But, I rather liked this perspective and line angles and somewhat muted, monotone colors of the architecture as I gazed into the heart of the city.

From Gas Works park in Seattle there’s a great view across Lake Union to the Seattle skyline.  But the park itself is really quite interesting.  Especially in the evening when the sun’s down.  It used to burn coal in days gone by and can be a bit ominous looking.  Perfect!

It can be quite busy on Seattle’s waterfront.  Shipping and industry, ferry’s coming and going, people milling around and enjoying the scene, chowing down at one of many restaurants, the infamous Pike St. market close at hand.  I was actually able to get this photo while sitting in the ferris wheel car waiting to be let out.  It’s hard to get a clean shot from inside the car as there is often a reflection coming right back at you.  But this one came out clean.
