Seattle Space Needle, From Underneath.

The Seattle Space Needle juts from the landscape, it’s hard to miss. With its iconic architectural elements and the promises of a great view from the height, it draws crowds that visit with camera in hand. Okay, I’ll bite…

The thing about such structures that invite hoards of tourists each year, is that mostly the pictures that emerge, are basically the same. I avoided taking the obligatory snapshots, and tried to get something that remotely resembled a photograph that had forethought. Appreciating the work of such an architectural and construction undertaking, I delayed our entry to get the shots. It seems anyone traveling with me experiences delays while I shoot. It’s a secondary price they pay to see the sights.
