Seattle's Space Needle

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 12 September 2013 in Architecture.

Built to be a marking symbol for the 1962 Seattle world's Fair, The Space Needle has, without a doubt, surpassed that expectation many times over. Those who have been to Seattle and, arguably, many residents very likely have two or perhaps three iconic symbols that reside in their mind's eye when they think of their home city: Mount Rainier, The Olympic and Cascade Mountain Ranges, and the Space Needle. Personally, I think this wonderful structure contributes greatly to this city's already beautiful image. I have posted this "different" perspectivein order to symbolize my belief that the Space Needle is as much of a part of the city's skyline as any other building. Seattle truly is a jewel of a city.

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
