Springtime Seattle—
clouds brushing past Space Needle,
piercing azure sky.

  1. What a great picture. I’ve never seen it from this angle before and I lived near Seattle for two years.

  2. Blue sky and green grass, lovely!! Happy Easter!

      Thanks for your visit, Kim. I couldn’t figure out how to post a comment on your blog, so here it is:

      Like a bird in flight

      you are rising in the night,

      fullest of all moons.

  3. Ah, now that looks familiar!!! What a terrific capture! I love it and spring it is! Although, you wouldn’t know it if you were here today!! Hope you have a very Happy Easter weekend!

      I was wondering if you’d stop by today, Sylvia. I’m glad my photo warmed your heart. Seattle (your fair city) has captured mine! 🙂

  4. I suppose maintenance people only are allowed up there! Whatever it is good for, it stands proud against your sky this week!

      Actually, Margaret, if you pay for a ticket, the elevator will whisk you to the top in about 43 seconds. The Space Needle affords a stunning view of the city of Seattle–and beyond–even on a rainy day (and it was certainly rainy and windy the day of my visit–not the day I took this photo!).

  5. That’s a great angle for a picture of the Space Needle. I always see it from a crowded city view. I love to visit Seattle when I can, mostly to basketball games at UW.

  6. Lovely blue skies above the Space Needle 😉
    I remember when I used to think I’d teach forever as well. Glad you’re there with your students.
    Hugs and blessings,
    Sacred Ruminations

  7. That’s an interesting structure! A beautiful shot!
